Here's the data format for member files. It's a bit incomplete, but it should be more than sufficient for a converter.

UBB versions since 5.x use the same format, in general. Infopop programmers have just tacked on more lines at the end of the file as the versions have progressed. This information was made with 6.5.0 in mind, but if you handle blank lines or a file that is short a number of lines, it should work fine for UBB 5.x and 6.x. Lines that I didn't bother to or couldn't figure out the format of are so noted with the string "??".

Forum configuration files are not the same throughout different versions. And it seems that the forum posts format has changed since every release of UBB.classic 6.x.

The line numbers are just for reference. They don't appear in the actual file. Here's a sample of a member data file:

OK, I've discovered FUDforums and I've seen the light. Now I want to convert. Now this might seem like a dumb question, but how do I use this to convert my UBB forums to FUDforums?

I noticed the only conversion script available is for UBB Threads 6.1. I have UBB Classic 6.7.1. Will the UBB Threads conversion script work for Classic as well?

Hi Ilia, I'm sure you are very busy, but I was just checking in on the progress of this converter. It's coming up on the year anniversary of my forums and I would like this to be the big upgrade after a year. Smile Thanks!

Sorry for the delay, getting swamped with commercial projects based on FUD. I do have the conversion thing on my todo and will try to get to it as soon as I can.
