  • Writing a blog import?

    I have a custom blog application I built off of PhotoPost codebase (http://www.extremefitness.com/blog); I'd like to write an importer for vBBlog so that I could potentially convert over to this system. If I were to use the vBJournal importer as a "guide", could you tell me the basics of how the importer is laid out so I could modify it according to my setup?

    I would use the vBloagtin system as a template and go though 000.php for all the "get data" functions then though the 00X.php functions to see where the fields are mapped to the vBBlog ones.
    I wrote ImpEx.

      Thanks, I'll try that one. I use the vB user database, just have a table for blogs and comments; hoping it won't be too much effort.

        Thanks, got everything working with some tweaking - imported my categories, comments and blogs.
