okay i got it to go now i have a problem is that all my post and topics are there but there are some topics that just show like a link where the image came from and not the image.

what i need is lets say someone goes to a site and they see a bunch of images and just highlight it all and select copy and then so to the forum and paste it

but it don't show the images or nothing like smf you can do that with and that is how most of my site is because when i changed over to smf from my old site i just copy and paste and all the images and stuff showed the same but this now don't

Is it all attachments or just the thumbs?

Where are your SMF attachments? They should be in the directory as defined in the SMF Administration Panel. That is where the convertor looks for them.

all errors are the same - "Could not copy file ./../../forum// to ./../files/thumb_" but there are no items in the "files" folder (except the htaccess and index).
in smf files are in the default "attachments" directory and are working normally...

I really need help figuring this out. MY current domain is http://mysite.com/forums/index.php, and my phpBB3 is installed in http://mysite.com/phpBB3, and I currently installed the converted in my phpBB3 folder, but when I try to go to the convert_smf20RC2.php it just gives me a blank page and doesnt respond at all? Any idea why I can get this page to load.

You don't go to convert_smf20x.php.

phpBB3 needs to be installed an the install directory needs to be in place
You upload the convertor files to the phpBB3 root directory maintaining the directory structure of the zip file
Then you point you browser to http://mysite.com/phpBB3/install/index.php
Click the Convert tab and follow the instructions.

Just tried this using an SMF 2.0 final forum and it converted fine except for an attachment or two.

Works for SMF 2.0RC1 and SMF 2.0RC2. It is not tested on Beta versions, but should work.

With the phpBB install directory in place, you upload the convertor files to the phpBB root maintaining the directory structure of the zip file.

Hi All,

My first post. I am currently an unhappy person. I operate a SMF based forum. Would really like to test out a phpbb3 convert on a duplicate smf forum I made to make sure it works okay before going "live".

I installed phpbb3 in a separate directory still within my public_html folder. I did this using the server based installer tool "softlicious". I uploaded the smf 2.0RC2 converter files and put them in their respective locations.
Following the how to: http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... &t=1213555, this is where I hit a stopping point. In the forum root directory I made the "install" folder buy uploading it from the smf converter package. Since this was a server based install I seem to be lacking the other files the tutorial indicates will be in the "install" folder.

Considering this information can I still proceed with testing a conversion without the index.php that would normally be in "install" folder?

Update upon last "yet unapproved" post.

I deleted the files that the server based installer deposited and uploaded the contents of a freshly unpacked 3.0.8 package. I did this in /public_html/forum. Now I have index.php within the install folder. I correctly answered all the database and user questions and clicked on the "concert" and again "proceed" buttons. This is what resulted:

[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice: in file /install/convertors/functions_smf20RC2.php on line 139: include(./../../NewForum/Themes/default/languages/index.english-utf8.php) [function.include]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory

When I go back to the index page it indicates:

Okay faithful users...we're attempting to restore an older backup of the database...news will be posted once we're back!

Curiously I am now logged in as a user who has not been to my site in at least a year

I made sure to recursively chmod 755 all files in the /public_html/forum folder prior to visiting any url's within.

Again this is on smf 2.0RC2

my site is localted at http://webdt.org

Sure would appreciate any tips or help on converting this pig.

Silly me.

By reading the output of the errors I can see that I am missing a language file. As I duplicated my live forum to a dormant folder to conduct the test conversion on this is an easy file to replace. Once I did the conversion completed and I am on my way.
