x-ipbm to newbb?!

I have searched high and low to no avail... is there a converter to go from x-ipbm to newbb?

Predator said there was one here
..but i cant seem to find it!

Seems like many are up in there air about this. Anyone got clarity? He mentioned it will be included in the final release of newbb2

Does that mean it's part of newbb2? Or did it never get released? That was at the end of last year!

Somebody?... Anybody?...

Re: x-ipbm to newbb?!

coops,

I'm not sure if Koudanshi or Predator is handling this conversion, but I think Predator aka Marko has taken other projects and probably isn't working on this. You might try contacting Kouddanshi directly.

Try asking David or DJ to help you port to CBB. You might be able to lure one of them off thier busy schedule for a little cash. Paid support for a conversion might get you where you want to be.

BTW, thanks for being so nice about your troubles. I hope your able to work this out.

Re: x-ipbm to newbb?!

hi don,

Koudanshi said that if we want a ipbm->cbb converter we can talk to the CBB makers. Ive seen a few threads where people offer money for it but there has been no outcome :(

Also posted on the cbb website about it with no outcome...

Maybe i'll have to try a tedious manual one.. oh well, thanks for the reply, at least I know now that nobody has done it and I'm not going to be wasting my time

Re: x-ipbm to newbb?!

Just a reminder for all. There is a ton of energy going into the next XOOPS release. That includes core module developers getting their own projects compatible with the new release. I imagine that leaves little free time for other projects, family or non XOOPS related fun. If there is such a thing. So keep that in mind if things you're requesting take a bit longer than expected.



David,

Why are you wanting to migrate to cbb if I may ask? Also if you manually have to convert to cbb what would that involve?

Re: x-ipbm to newbb?!

Don,

xipbm is good, but I have had quite a few problems and don't like the core hacks, I would rather it to be isolated modules because my site is down atm as a result of core files gone wrong :(

cbb has a more definate upgrade path and i thought would have more support than xipbm

if i decide to do a manual convert i guess it will be exporting the db into csv, scrubbing the data and re-arranging tables to alighn with the cbb table structure, then importing the csv (all using phpmyadmin and excel)

Re: x-ipbm to newbb?!

Hi,

i found this: http://xoopsforge.com/modules/newbb/v ... ost_id=1682#forumpost1682

But it doesn't really work... seems it was written for converting phpbb to newbb. Has anyone more success with converting XIPB to CBB or NewBB?
I want to use CBB in future, but converters missing for other forums.
