The first thing you have to do is add a field to the Przmeo users table:

Code: Select all

    ALTER TABLE phpbb_users ADD user_dateformat varchar (60) default '|j M Y|, \o H:i' not null;
If your przemo table prefix is not phpbb_ change to your table prefix.

To convert the subforums, use phpBB2 with Simple Subforums. This may or may not work depending on how Przemo handles subforums. The worst that can happen, the subforums will be converted to regular forums. You can then use the phpBB3 Administration Control Panel to recreate the subforums by attaching what should be the subforums to their respective parent forums.

Przemo does come with the Categories Hierarchy MOD, but I don't know what version. You could try the Categories Hierarchy convertor. You will still have to do the change I mentioned in this post, http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... #p13086869
