Any plans for an XMB to phpBB3 convertor?

Post by auspuff » Tue Jun 05, 2007 2:20 pm

I,m trying to do it now from XMB to phpbb2 to phpbb3 but i,m having a hard time with the attachment mod. Are there any plans to write a converter from xmb to phpbb3 that also converts the attachments?

I second that, I have a busy XMB 1.9.6 board I want to convert at some stage, but even the phpBB 2 converters are for much older versions of XMB...

Maybe one day...

The xmb2phpbb convertor will convert 1.9.6 to phpBB2, but as auspuff mentioned, the attachment convertor part was written for an older version of the attachment MOD and I don't think it does work for the newest version of the attachment MOD.

As for XMB to phpBB3, I will look into it.

The conversion of our 1.9.6. to phpBB2 goes quite well even though the converter is old and written for older versions of XMB. It,s just the attachements conversion that doesn,t work.

Contact me if a little financial compensation would spur your efforts to create an XMB to phpBB3 converter.

I would consider some financial help if that would help too...

As my board has lots of image attachments...
