Dokumentation about Converters

Post by Dyo » Tue Mar 01, 2016 6:37 pm

Hello everybody.

12 years ago I installed a phpbb2 and made a lot of special features by hand.
Now its time to update.
Is there a documentation about how the converters work, so that I'llbeable to change a few things special for my old phpbb2 with specialfeatures?

Specially the usage of the converter-arrays are interesting for me, cause my old bb is nearly original in the core, expect the user_level.
So I have to change things in user_level and write a few more parts to convert from calendarfeatures and a few other things.

Regards

Dyo

The 3.1.x installer does have a phpBB2 converter shipped with, if you like to hack it.

Thats what I want todo.
What I'm searching for, is a documentation how converter-scripts work, something about the api of these converters to see how I can hack the existing one.

Just have a look to /install/converters/ there are two files for phpBB2. Basically you should be able to hack a copy of that files to fit your needs.

Class API https://area51.phpbb.com/docs/code/3.1.x/convert.html

Into the first sticky Topic here there is an example of a converter created for another forum software too, if helps.

Good Job ;-)

Well what I hoped to find was something like:"The first Array contents Value-old-table, Value-new-table......"
An explaination of code and how to use the elements of code.

But now I think there is enough information for me to find my way. Thx.
