Well, after playing with the new 7.0 version I maybe interested in converting back to ubbthreads from vBulletin 3.5.4

Is there going to be an import tool/script available?

Thanks

Once we get everything stable with 7.0 then I'd like to add to the importer list with vbulletin being one of them. So it's definitely something that will be coming.

It's the next importer that I'll be working on. So as soon as I get a bit of free time I'll be starting on this. However our importers will probably always be for the latest version so this might be written for 3.6 which I think is their latest?

Unfortunately, haven't had a chance to get much further on this. Quite a few bugs made it past the initial beta testing so we've been spending a majority of the time on getting these fixed before we can go back to the importers. vb is still the first one that we'll be finishing up when I can spend some time on it again.

When again will this be done and why isn't it a higher priority? I'd love to switch over to UBB from vBulletin but I cannot until this is complete. Is there a somewhat real date for accomplishing this?

I'll have time to work on this as soon as we get 7.1 finished. The main reason it's not a higher priority is we have to take care of our current customers first and there are a variety of things that we needed to get into 7.1. That's not to say the importers aren't a priority. Once I actually get started on it, I can't imagine it will take more than a week or so to finish the importer.

I think he said he was going to get the current ones fixed (there are several bugs of the phpbb importer), then move on to vb and fusion.

I for one can't wait to see a UBB.Threads 7.x to UBB.Threads 7.x importer, so I can combine two threads installs...

Not done yet as far as i know (as Rick would have posted an annoucement), and it'll be an importer file which you would obtain via the member area, drop into the importers directory, and execute like any other importer wink

The first importer has taken longer than expected, and with that I needed to start work on 7.1.1 as well, as bug fixing for current customers always takes priority. In the final testing on the Eve importer at which point we'll get 7.1.1 out in beta and then I'll work on the vb one which shouldn't take nearly as long.

Yep, it's being worked on. Their database is pretty tough to figure out all of the relations and how to import everything. I'm trying to make it so I can import as much as possible, but I'm finding a few sticking points.

The problem has been that I've been trying to write it so it will import everything and some of the things just don't port over that well. I've got it doing users, forums, and categories, have spent a fair amount of time trying to get forum/user permissions to carry over but I've had to redo this several times.

I may have to end up doing something a bit more basic to start like I did for the Eve importer and then expand from there. We're also going to look into making some type of import system that is more modular so instead of having to recreate it for each different product it will be easier to create new ones.

Sorry I don't have better news on this. Trying to balance time spent on it without pushing back the release cycle too much.

Thanks for the update and sorry to hear it's being such a pain.

Any kind of thought on when you might even have anything up and going? Just curious as to how to plan my forums future and when it might be good to check back here, without being overly obnoxious about it? (I know you're busy.) smile
