  • Import only users from phpbb

    Hi,
    I have almost 5000 users and I want to import ONLY them (and no post, I use previous forum archive) from phpbb2.0.4. in my new VB3.0.6.

    Is it possible?

    Do you know if there are problems with nick like My Nick (i.e. with spaces)?
    Is VB case-sensitive (phpbb not)?

    Any suggest or comment is very pleasant

    Yes, you can choose to only import your users. Juts ignore the other import modules.

    No problems with usernames with spaces and vB usernames are not case-sensitive (passwords are though.)

      Do you know if there are problems with other characters like
      '
      &
      *

        Offhand I don't know. It's easy enough to test this though.

          In usernames or passwords?

          As long as the characters in the password were not converted it would be fine
