  • smf 1.4 to vb? how difficult a process?

    also, your link to purchase website does not work for me. it just waits for new page to load but it never loads.

    what do i need for vb to transfer smf forum?

    do you have photo gallery?

    do you have admin toolkit to access forum from database if problems. for example, admin account deleted on accident, can new admin account be made directly in the database?

    does vb have back up tool?

  • #2 loads fine for me.

    The ImpEx system will allow you to import from SMF. Despite the version saying 1.2, it seems to support 1.4. You can download it once you purchase a license.

    There is no complete photo gallery addon, however the upcoming version 3.7 has photo albums which are somewhat similar. If you are looking for a full gallery system you will have to use an unofficial addon such as PhotoPost or PhotoPlog

    You can set it up so it's impossible to delete the admin user from vB, but this doesn't stop it from being deleted from the database. In the event the admin user is deleted, you can register a new user and use a tool file to give that user admin access.

    vB has a backup tool in the ACP, however backing up from a PHP script in unreliable, in the event your database is big, it could timeout, leaving you with an incomplete backup. The only reliable method of backing up is SSH, which depends on your host.
