vB -> phpbb2 -> phpbb3

Post by amagab » Thu Dec 20, 2007 5:47 pm

I know there is no converter for vb -> phpbb3 yet so has anyone tried going vb to phpbb2 and then to phpbb3? Does it work? I read in another thread that there has been an issue with subforums. What if I made my subforums regular forums before the conversion? Would it work without any issues? I'm eager to start using phpbb3 on one of my forums.

This convertor does work on vB3.6. http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... 5&t=557811

You'd lose things like attachments if you went through phpBB2.
