Import from IPB / IPS / Invision Power Board?

Post by Olaf van der Spek » Sat Dec 22, 2018 12:21 pm

I've got a IPB based forum that I'm considering migrating to phpBB. Is there support for importing posts and users automatically? If not, is it possible to do it manually and if so, is there documentation for this?

IPB 3.4..
An importer for phpBB 3.0 appears to be available, I might try that route.

That is what a lot of people do. Convert to a supported version and then upgrade.
