Conversion from other software

  1. 6 years ago

    Hi,
    I know Toby is pretty busy right now, but will some sort of conversion system be added so people can easily move from, say, IPB, MyBB, phpBB, and others?

    I'd really like to convert both my forums to esoTalk but losing all that content is not really an option for me.

    Yes, this is something I will be working on in the future. Can't really give you a time estimate, though.

  3. That's cool, glad to hear you're working on it.

  4. I'm just waiting for this possibility to migrate from my phpBB (7 years in use) to esoTalk :)

    Yeah, I'd like to convert my IP.Board, MyBB, and Vanilla forums to esoTalk.

    I need to migrate from phpBB.
    I think many people have the same problem.
    @Toby: is there the possibility to ask for a ransom migration tool?

  7. It could work even a migrator from Vanilla or from other "famous" forum software.
    I could migrate from phpBB to another software and, from that, to esoTalk.

    Actually, it seems most converters start out supporting phpBB for maximum compatibility, because phpBB has so many convertors it makes it easy to convert to phpBB and then to another forum software.

  11. Thank you Ramir!
    Tomorrow I'll give a try (I have a phpBB2 forum indeed) :)
    You already made the switch?

  12. Yes, but I switched to version 1.0.0g2! http://forum.interesnyimir.com

    I am wondering how painful is a conversion from another platform?

  15. Not to speak for Toby, but I believe he's working on conversion tools to move existing forums (including esoTalk) into Flarum, as that's where all new development efforts have been.
