Where is the YaBB Convertor?

Post by XMX »

Hello ! i hope this is the right place... I currently host a YaBB 2.6 Forum and it seems that company/software will no longer be supported in the long term.

So where is the yabb to phpbb 3.2.7 ?? if such a thing exists?

Thank you.

And again sorry of this is in the wrong section.


Cheers

I don't think there is a YaBB 2.6 to phpBB converter, in fact I've never seen a YABB converter.

Perhaps there are converters from YABB to e.g. SMF in which case you could then convert SMF to phpBB.
However, YaBB 2.6 is the latest version and it's possible that there are no specific converters yet for YaBB 2.6 to any other forumsofwtare.

Google gives me a couple of results but these aren't free.

Brexit and Trump are old news and currently I have no inspiration for a new signature.
Ow, wait: 3.3 has been released.

why would you want to start off with a style that is out of date? exactly what style are you asking about?

many of the styles will partially work, but there are changes since 3.2.5 that might make some things not work or not work totally.
