Convert from Fireboard 1.0.4 to phpBB3?

Post by idefix6 » Wed Apr 30, 2008 8:41 am

Hi,

I have here a Fireboard 1.0.4 under Joomla running and want to switch to phpBB3.
I tried the bridge which exists and everything is working perfectly.

Now I tried to convert my Fireboard posts to phpBB3.
For this I tried the steps:
Fireboard->phpBB2->phpBB3

But I have the problem that the attachments are not migrated.

Can please anyone provide with a solution where it is possible to migrate the attachments too?

Thanks a lot
Matthias

This is the route I took to convert from Fireboard 1.0.3 to phpbb3.

Fireboard -->> SMF 1.1 -->> phpbb3

Fireboard to SMF convertor

SMF to phpbb3 convertor

Lost Avatars and passwords though. Most pic attachments came across. Pics that were uploaded via Fireboard ...were lost but all I needed to do was to create/provide the folder and images that the links were pointing to.

Example: images/fbfiles/images/screen003.jpg

Re: passwords ... due to the different methods that SMF and phpbb3 encrypts passwords...passwords did not convert. Users needed to click on "Forgot password" to "re-activate" their account.

thanks a lot for your reply but that failed for me too.

I upgraded now with the step fireboard->phpBB2->phpBB3.

Picture where ok and the attachments for files I corrected manually :(

I installed now the joomla bridge so users can work with the forum without reseting the password.

Hopefully that was the last migration to a different forum :)

idefix... I am trying to dot he same.
What Joomla bridge did you use?
I tried Medhi's and Prezmo bridges for phpBB but they are not compatible with phpBB3.
Can you please describe in a little more detail what you did?
Are your Joomla users are using same login in phpBB, or dot hey have to login again when going to forums?
I would tremendously appreciate your help!

Note: RokBridge requires Joomla! 1.5

Bridge from mehdi is the best between all
I've try and work

you can see the demo at

Code: Select all

http://joomla15x.idoitforu.com/forum

http://rocketwerx.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=22 also good
but if you direct accsess your directory phpbb
so the forum will out from Joomla

the same thing also happened on the following commercial products
http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions ... 27/details

Mehdi's Bridge is the best :)
