No automatic code to do this is available today to my knowledge, so I guess I'll be doing that myself. I'll be reposting all of the topics, posts... and assigned them to the appropriate member, by the help of the "Admin can change post author" function, default in PhpBB MCP.My old High School class forums are on a free forum site that doesnt allow database backup. We abandoned that crappy service a long time a go. Now I've moved to a phpbb-custom made board.
Still now I want to extract / copy the posts from that old forum to the new phpbb forums, as they are all memories of my high school time.
But the thing is, if I want to change author of just 1 post, currently I have to go through so many steps. My plan would take forever...
I see in Wordpress there is a selection for Admin upon posting to choose whatever user he wants to be:
So I am hopeful for PhpBB
Someone has already made a similar mod for PhpBB2
Notice the "2 way arrows" icon at the top right
http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... 5&t=442698
This is still a bit troublesome because you still have to click that icon and get to another page to do things, it would be nicer if instead of that icon is a Drop-down box (with all the names of the users) alongside with an "OK" button
Could someone possibly make it for for PhpBB3?
A mod that allows Admin to Drop-down select a username at posting to assign that user to the post, and a Drop-down box at the top-right of every post alongside with the "OK" button for quick changing the author of the viewing posts/topic
Please help, I really need that one. That would help massively my effort in recreating our community.
Many thanks in advance
