It is about time that UBB.threads now has a vBulletin 3.8.x importer. I have heard the news about many people considering to drop vBulletin due to their increase in prices for vB 4.0, and I think this was the right time to release a vBulletin 3.8.x importer for those planning to switch to other forum software packages.

Now, I have some questions about the importers for UBB.threads 8.0:
  • I read in another thread that UBB.threads 8.0 will have an importer for phpbb3. Are there any other importers planned? Other than phpBB and vBulletin, I think that some high priority importers would be Invision Power Board 3.x, SMF 2.x, and FusionBB 3.x.
  • Will the UBB.classic and UBB.threads 6.x importers be updated for UBB.threads 8.0 with the ability to bypass UBB.threads 7.x entirely? Or will you be required to import to the latest version of UBB.threads 7.x before upgrading to UBB.threads 8.0?

I hope you can provide some quick answers. Thanks.

From what I understand, Rick is going to make "the system" much easier to create importers for other products, so i'd imagine that we'd definitely be able to knock out the majors (Fusion, vB, IPB, SMF, phpBB).

I'd imagine that Rick would update the importers for v8 for the ubb to be able to bypass ubb7 for those coming from ubb6's, but I'll wait in anticipation with you wink.

I'd like to include that I'd still like to see a UBB.t7 to UBB.t7 (or even UBB.t8 to UBB.t8) importer; I've got a couple of forums installs that I'd love to combine, and that's just not possible right now...
