I want to convert an XMB 1.8 sp1 forum to FUDForum 2.50. Is anyone interested in helping me to do this for my BBclone forum http://bbclone.tuxfamily.org

After 2.5.0 is released I will be happy to write a XMB -> FUDforum conversion script as long as you can provide a datadump. So, please wait until 2.5.0 final and then ask me again Wink

Protoss, just wanted to say thank you very much. Had a little bit of trouble installing it at first, but then registering the admin differently from any username previously used solved the problem.

Excellent stuff.

The most confusing part about the conversion process is that all existing data must be cleared. This means that once you convert you need to login under the admin account of the original (XMB) forum to complete the final step of the conversion, which is running the consistency checker.
