Is there or will there be a SMF import anytime soon,
smf ---> Vbulletin --> xenforo
I don''t think there is such an importer at this time but maybe it will be created soon. In meanwhile you can try to convert to vb 3x and then to xenforo.
Thanks for that, worked like a charm, good to see some on the ball!
It's a pain to do that, still need a vB license and their importer for that...
Glad to hear that it went well for you
Why would someone purchase a vB license just to use it to convert to another software? Waste of money if you ask me. But then again, I'd grab a nulled version of vB any day and not think twice about it. IB are a bunch of greedy assclowns.
If you already had a vB 3.x licence, it might be viable Or you could reverse engineer the vB-to-SMF converter, I guess.
Haven't had time to poke too much at the XF database locally, had trouble with installing on localhost (because I don't have it set up as FastCGI for various reasons)
pete I think you should make a proper converter, add some salt in the smf wound that the team have caused.
A proper converter would be great.
I'm paying a guy a good bit of money to build one this next week.
I'll be guessing that you won't be releasing it publically? Would be great if you did though.
Probably will but haven't really thought of it.
Well it'd be a massive help to the global communities if you did. But obviously, it is your money spent.
90% sure I'll release it for free and people can donate back if they wish. I share everyone's frustration with SMF so I get why so many are interested in jumping ship.
All the other custom work (CMS, multi-site) will probably be a pay add on if we release them at all.
any news on this?
i need this importer.
An unofficial SMF 2 importer is currently being developed.
