Handy tip number 7

So the idea here is .... bbcode tags give migration problems ?
Is the problem that the Tags remain ? ie. [ wiki ] whatever [ / wiki ]

I wonder if the BBcode Manager could somehow enable Xenforo users to migrate to another forum (if they had to) in a more effective way ?

I absolutely hate custom bb codes for the exact same reason. It's not something a table dump and some regex magic using sed/awk/perl/whatever cannot solve, but it's still annoying and, depending on the size of the post table, can be extremely time consuming.

Even the different usage of quote tags can be a pain when migrating to a different forum software.


KingK made a bbcode manager that you can use. It lets you make your own bbcode and works great.
I've used 24 custom bbcode on wetalk network and converted them all.
