    It imports posts and members but has not been well tested yet - though it is designed to import everything.

    If you would like to be a beta tester please email me - [email protected]

        No, not an official one. I think there have been requests for one over at vbulletin.org but I don't think one has been written yet. Check over there.

          What is the status of the UBB 6.3 importer. I am desperately in need of it.

          The last I heard, it was supposed to be ready last week. If you need a beta tester, I will be happy to volunteer!

            YaBB, being free and a very good BB, I would have thought Vb would be chompin' at the bit to get an importer up and running to steal those using YaBB..

            I say this because I need A Yabb - Vb importer lol

                hope that helps

                  It's in the Members Area. You need to be a customer first to access it.

                    I see that there is no convertor for Yabb--> vB but wondered if anyone knew if there may be one in the future.. I am loathe to make all my members rejoin just because I have updated to a different board..

                      I don't believe an official YaBB convertor is being worked on. You can ask about an unofficial one at vbulletin.org.

                        You could improve the Ikonboard 3 converter a bit.
                        Right now the ibhtml2bb function doesn't convert all
                        the iBCodes, so I made afterwards a script that runs
                        through all messages. The speed was about 1000
                        posts in 20 seconds on my server and it fixed most of
                        unconverted codes. Here are some of the replace
                        commands I used.
                        Code:
                        	$htmlcode=eregi_replace("<!--QuoteBegin--([^\"]*)--></span><table border=\"0\" align=\"center\" width=\"95%\" cellpadding=\"3\" cellspacing=\"1\"><tr><td>\[b\]Quote\[/b\] \(([^<]*)\)</td></tr><tr><td id=\"QUOTE\"><!--QuoteEBegin-->","[quote][i]Originally posted by \\2[/i]\n",$htmlcode);
                        
                        	$htmlcode=eregi_replace("<!--EDIT\|([^\"]*)\|([^<]*)-->","[i]Edited by \\1 on \\2[/i]",$htmlcode);
                        	
                        	$htmlcode=eregi_replace("<span style='color:([^\"]*)'>([^<]*)</span>","[color=\\1]\\2[/color]",$htmlcode);
                        (Click edit to see the code because vBulletin wants to
                        parse the vBcode within [code] tags. Bug?)

                        There were some replace commands as well, because
                        of the differences between IB3.0.1 and the older beta
                        versions, but you might not want to support old
                        versions so I didn't list them.


                        You could also have mentioned somewhere that you
                        need to add custom smilies manually to ibhtml2bb().

                          UBB 6.3 importer is now available.

                          No, there is no official YaBB importer. And no, there are no immediate plans to develop one.

                          Jackal von ÖRF: Thank you for the suggestions; they will be implemented in the next release of the importer.

                          thcehcs: I'd still like to discuss the possibility of a UBB.x importer with you if you are interested. Please feel free to send me an email at the address I posted earlier.

                              The UBB Import does import both messages and members correct? I currently have UBB 5.45c
