I have it almost done.

I noticed some weirdness with the forums. MG did a good job of allowing multi-levels of subforums, but if an Admin goes crazy and does things like creating a category and setting a forum as the parent, it makes it near impossible to convert the forums. I have come up with something that should work, though.

I have a couple more bbcodes to add, so it shouldn't be much longer.

Version 1.0.0 of the Icy Phoenix to phpBB3 convertor is attached. This convertor was written for Icy Phoenix version 13053a. I don't believe it is compatible with earlier versions of Icy Phoenix. Icy Phoenix 13053a has many of the features of phpBB3 and most of these will be converted over to phpBB3.

Many of the Icy Phoenix BBCodes will be added automatically by the convertor. Some I was not able to do because they require additional javascript files or additional MODs, e.g., albums.

Optional is the conversion of Genders. If you would like Genders converted, you will need to install the Gender MOD. If not installed, the convertor will skip converting genders.

When does the white page occur?

As explained in Convert How To, you need to have the full install directory from the initial phpBB3 installation. Then you browse to install/index.php, click the Convert tab and select the Icy Phoenix convertor.

Thanks so much Dicky!

It worked without an issue once I knew how to do it correctly.

I'm using a phpbb3 forum and joomla cms right now :)

Hi!
I also want to convert my ICY Phoenix Forum (Version: 1.3.0.53a) to PHPBB3.

Still have the problem that the converter 2 database entries not found.
These are in place but are called differently. Is there already a solution?
How can I change the entries in the database name?

The name of my ICY SQL table is phpbb_posts
But phpbb_posts_text and ip_post_txt do not exist in my version of ICY-SQL-table.

Thank you for your help
abylon

Are you using the Icy Phoenix convertor? That convertor does not look for the posts_text table.

That doesn't make any sense at all. It isn't even post_text.

Exactly where do you get this error? Is there more to the error, like is there a back trace?
