Why would you get paid? This is a free support site for free software.

What do you mean? You mean there is an importer which already exists and we can shift a simplepress forum to a phpbb one :o ? Please reply ASAP. This is very important as I thought there was no such things and I consulted a programmer to make one.

If Dicky says that one has not been written yet, then one has not been written yet.

Who's Dicky? I'm pretty sure it's not made. Please make it guys. I need it desperately. If you guys don't make it, then I will be a victim of severe money assault, which will turn me into a broke.

We all provide resources for free here, and you will not be paid for contributions to the community. Likewise, any agreement you would make with the person you are hiring to write such a convertor would most likely not allow for reselling of the service or product. Sorry!

He responded to your previous inquiry here- http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... #p12884770 and http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... #p12885186 Tools like convertors are made by users due to a demand that needs to be met. Just like MODs, it really depends on a member having an interest in this for their own use and then sharing with the community. If you are not able to do it and no one else here has needed this for their own use yet, then it comes down to needing to hire someone. Just like you might not be able to wire a house and hire an electrician, you may need to hire a coder for this sort of job. Best wishes for luck on your project!

Who is "you" in this case? phpBB is community supported software, so you just need one person who can do it to want to do it. Everyone's time is limited, however, so you shouldn't think that everyone is just looking aside because they're lazy.

I personally have never heard of simplepress before, so it's not a huge surprise that there's no convertor for it. My guess is the $400 was a quote that someone gave you to write a convertor?

I'll move this to the convertors forum and hopefully someone will do it for you.

Actually I want the converter. I got a programmer and he wants 400$ to make it. I need money and using 400$ for conversion is like waste cause it was my fault that I made it on simplepress. So please guys, PLEASEEE. In the name of Jesus make me the converter. I have a big project and I need money and I can't spend 400$ on a thing which is supposed to be free :cry: :cry: :cry: .

Please, save me from being a broke before even I start my project..AMEN!

This board does not support software downloaded from other sites. If you have questions about that software, you will need to ask on the site you get it.

But mate, I just wanna know whether this will help me creating a SPF to phpBB converter. You can't even say that? You can't make this, you can't even say that. Wth can you guys do then? I am dieing to convert to phpBB and their support staff are not supporting me. No wonder people say that this world is the worst and cruel place to live in.
