  • SMF to vBulletin


    I am currently running SMF 1.1 RC2 and will hopefully be changing to vBulletin in the near future.

    I have some questions about the conversion process....

    1. Is it possible?
    2. Am i likely to lose anything?
    3. If the SMF forum is integrated into Subdreamer (or possibly mambo) is that going to affect the conversion process?
    4. Will i have to reset my usergroups? i.e. reinstate peoples moderator status?

    We offer a free impex convert software and it comes with free support.

    Here is our script with details on the SMF import - it will list what is imported (and therefor what isn't.)

    Integration should not cause a problem, unless it has changed the database structure. It expects the default database structure. If it does not run into what it expects it will error.

    Yes, permissions for usergroups and forums are much more advanced with vBulletin and therefor have to be reset to make sure security is uphold.
