Good work lads! A newer version of Impex is in the works?

^ Not sure but I do know Zachery is maintaining and improving upon it so I would imagine so. Would be best to get it straight from the horses mouth though instead of this donkey ;).

I'm doing what I can when I can. If people report issues I can try to work though them. At this time I don't really have the time or tools to write new importers.

I would like to work towards getting a PHP 7.0 compatibile release at some point that that will take some work

Are there any to-do's? I'll gladly start contributing to the repository if there's anything.
Or do I just have to install different forum software myself, run Impex, and see if I come across any problems?

Usually missing attachments are the main issue I run into when using impex. Users, threads, and posts come through fine nearly 99% of the time but a site with missing attachments well... yeah not too spiffy sadly.

Once you run this enough you'll get a feel for whats to be expected when importing from a certain software but I'll let Zachery comment he may actually want some help in here ;).

Really, anyone who has fixes or bugs, reporting them and getting me test data is the best way to get it fixed. Without it i'm aimless at this point besides php compatibility fixes :)

Now that your database can be obtained from Forums.net is there any chance it could be added to Impex?

I have a database and trying to get to vB.

Not sure who you are directing that to, but Zachery has not logged in since August last year.

I am directing to anyone and everyone. :)

It would be nice to be able to use Impex with newer versions of php..
