XF 1.1 Conversion and bbcode

    Hello! So, I'm working on a test conversion from a modified IPB 1.3 (jcink) to Xenforo. I'm converting from IPB 1.3 -> phpBB2 -> phpBB3 -> Xenforo.

    However, some of my bbcode has been turned into html throughout the process and that html does not parse on Xenforo.

    For example:
    Original jcink bbcodes
    [align=center]centered text[/align]
    [justify]Justifed text[/justify]
    HTML I'm seeing now
    <div align="center">Centered Text</div>
    <div align="justify">Justifed text</div>
    <span style='color:Mediumpurple'><span style='font-size:21pt;line-height:100%'><span style='font-family:Optima'>Header</span></span></span>
    Is there any way to convert the html characters back to bbcode?

    You would need to use the Post Content Find / Replace add-on. I believe someone can jump in and assist you with what to enter in the Regular Expression and Replacement Strings fields if you post this in the discussion (simply click the "Discussion" tab).

    Thank you! I hadn't even thought there might be an add-on for this.
