UPDATE: Please make sure to read the last posts. The beginning of the thread is kinda old, so please don't think this is how it works. Read the last posts.

----------------------------------

Hello. This is my first time posting here, so I hope I make a good first impression

Anyways...I just finished my phpBB 1.4.0 Convertor Utility, allthough I don't have an actual phpBB 1.4.0 DB to test it on. All I did was use a DB with 2 forums, one topic, and one post . Anyways, if you have phpBB 1.4.0, or any other kind of phpBB (Convert it to 1.4.0, of course ), please please help me test this.

If you find an error or some way of crashing or messing up the process, please tell me what happened. Also, if you could send me a copy of the database you are using, that would be greatly appreciated. Please don't think I'll steal your PWs, because they are MD5 encoded.

Known Bugs:
  • Does not make private forums private while converting

When it is converting, all the user passwords are changed to a different md5-encoded string. I plan to change this later.

I know it isn't very user friendly. Also, please don't take any part of this code without my permission. I worked really hard on it. Thanks a bunch.

Please post anything you have to say about this below.

horrible news...

I sent a message to James, but he won't be back until September 14 (I think). That's the good news, I got the message sent. The horrible news is...my vBulletin license expires on the 9th of September!!!!!

So, if you guys want something fixed, please tell me before September 9th. I don't want to run a vBulletin copy if it's expired...

New Release...New Features...

Hello. This version may add a bug or two, but that's okay, the new features were supposed to be included, but never were, but now are (did I say that right??). The new features are:
  • Rank Title Imports
  • User Title Imports
  • Ban List Imports
  • Censored Word Imports
  • Illegal Username Imports
  • FIXED: Settings were not taking immediate affect, only after you changed them in the control panel, they now take immediate affect.

Anyways, hope you like this update. I need a few people to help test this. I have tested this myself, and believe it to work, but would like to know it works for others too...

In other news, this will be the version I send to James (if no bugs are found). Please help me get this tested.

well the conversion went good w/the exception of some of the bb code... for example ->

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

so some of the pages are a little messed up but the conversion went pretty good all in all.

Nearly there

I haven't had much time lately to keep testing the script. My phpBB forums are now cleared from all problems encountered from importing from IB, so I have a 100% working database.

I imported everything into Vbulletin and this time it went much better than before, if fact there are just a couple of problems this time.

The first is the members, it does imports them but does not merge them at all. i.e where members had the same username at phpBB as in vBulletin, they appear as duplicates (2 Charles, 2 John, etc) That is nothing too serious as I can fix it manually.

The main problem are the dates and I've tried everything. Not with the date they registered but with the date of posting. i.e May 23rd, 2037 03:59 In all the posts, the dates are wrong. They year is always in the future.

Anyone else having this problem or knows how it can be fixed? I'm not talking about importing into an empty database, that may work, but one which has members and posts already.

Apart from that, it's perfect.

okie, I'm reconverting my test board (provided by ParentStep.com). I will see what is wrong with the bold and link tags not working. Also Juan, That problem can be fixed about the dupe usernames. Just tell me how I should change it Also, I'm looking into the whacked post dates...

I'll let you know what happens, and if i'm able to reproduce some of your errors.

Hmm...I reproduced the all the errors but the post date/time bug, and fixed them. As for that, it worked completely fine for me. Since it is not broken for me, I won't try to fix it. Try converting again, and make sure that you are using phpBB version 1.4.0 or higher. If you still get something messed up with the post date/times...please send me a link where I can download a copy of your phpBB database (or a direct link to phpMyAdmin).

Here's the new release. I fixed some BBCode issues...what happened was, I removed the insensitivity flag in the preg_replaces in the HTML2vBCode function. So, only HTML tags that were uppercase were changed. That's now fixed. This version, you really only need to use it if you want to try to import a database, I did not add any new features.
