Hi All,

I want to convert a Satellite forum site http://www.satnerds.com to Xoops. It is now powered by: vBulletin Version 2.3.2.

Which setup, hacks and modules can you recommend me?

I was thinking about:
- Latest XOOPS (2.0.7)
- Auto Login Hack For XOOPS 2.0.7
- Flash and reals button for 2.0.7
- Internet Explorer 5.X CSS Hack For XOOPS 2
- Mail Users hack/fix
- AntiDos Attack
- Counter (statistic) to see the site and users profile
- Article Management System
- FAQ Management System
- News Management System
- Download Management System
- Forum module (admin chapter & part not viewable for common users)
- Good working Search engine (for all modules)
- Shoutbox
- Guestbook
- Polls
- Multimenu
- Chat

Can I convert the allready excisting "vBulletin Version 2.3.2 database" to the "Xoops database" for users, PM, forum-postings etc, etc..?

Maybe there is allready someone who is running a configuration like this who can help me?

Which theme do you guys prefer for a forum site?


Thanks allready, hope you can point me in the right direction of give a little help!



PS. I did allready realise a XOOPS site regarding the Dreambox satellite receiver http://dreambox.sjerom.com, but dont know what to use for this forum site with the latest possibility's...

dont think there is a convertor for vbulletin to XOOPS users
however a possible option is to convert vbulletin to normal invision and then use a convertor from invision to the invision XOOPS module
more info on the ipb module can be found here
http://www.bbpixel.com/modules/news/

as this module changes the core files there are some issues, however imo the benefits far out weigh the disadvantages

You will not find ONE module but a group of module to do what you want.

About the search:
