MG 1.0 Import from phpBB Gallery


Active member
Hi guys,

I have a client who is possibly looking into multiple options for their ageing phpBB site and one of them is upgrading to XenForo + XFMG. They only have one blocker: a massive media gallery :(

Do you guys know of a way to import this over? Any advice would be greatly appreciated,

a PHP BB gallery importer was suggested a couple of years ago, but it didn't really garner a lot of support and, actually, since the Gallery became an official XF product I don't believe it has been suggested at all.

We're unlikely to be adding any further importers now in the 1.x series of releases.

The only feasible way I can think of is to have one custom developed or try to find an import path via another Gallery.

You can see the Gallery importers here:

If you can find a migration path from PHP BB to one of those galleries (prefixed with XFMG) then you could do a double import.
