SMF 2.x to phpBB 3.2

Post by Juju » Wed Oct 04, 2017 3:26 pm

As I was trying to convert my own forum from SMF 2.0 to phpBB, I found this thing that only works with phpBB 3.0, I went ahead and made it work on phpBB 3.2.

Here's the result of my work:
Download latest version: ...

Be sure to install the extension before installing your board, or at least before converting, and please tell me if you find any issues.

Great you converted it and we can try this now, but before I try I can already tell you I found an issue before starting to try it.

I had a look at the content of the functions_smf20.php file and found the same problem I found and mentioned in my topic (with the fix).
It's about this statement:

Code: Select all

$message = preg_replace('/\[quote=(.*?)\]/s', '[quote="\1"]', $message);
and 3 similar once right below it. This will cause strange quote text stuff.
You need to replace " by just " to fix this.

I described my issue and this solution in my thread here in the 3rd post:

I will correct this and give it a try to see if I find any other issues also occuring with the older conversion tool (message parser error and img code stuff).
