forumotion converter expert wanted

Post by Mclechelle » Wed Jul 25, 2018 12:16 pm

is there anybody that can help me move topics and members from a forumotion forum to a phpbb forum? I have tried all the methods and converters given but all to no avail.

You need to ask a backup of your whole forum there. Files + database. Then just upload files to your new server and create database in phpMyAdmin, and upload your database.

Then there is no way to move your current forum. You need the database.

Well, it is possible, to a certain extend. First thing to do is mirror your site using httrack. This scrapes every public information visible for guests so you can sort of see your site on your local PC. Next you scrape that local mirror using a DOM sniffer I've seen around here some years ago. IIRC that was in the 3.0 days so that would probably need some updates.

You won't get everything, though; any hidden forums/topics/posts and all PMs will be lost. You will get forums, topics, posts, and users but you will loose passwords, polls, user settings, etc.

It's quite tedious, but AFAIK it's your only option if you want to leave Forumotion while keeping as much as possible from your board.
My extensions:
Simple CMS, Feed post bot, Avatar Resize, Modbreak, Magic OGP, Live topic update, Modern Quote, Quoted Where (GDPR) and Autoresponder.
Newest: FAQ manager for 3.2

Like my work? Buy me a coffee to keep it coming. :ugeek:
