Well I haven't looked at the ban control stuff.

In regards to the other changes I'll look into adding that to the converter as well.

Continued from a post made in another forum:

    What aka is trying to say, is that you need to add the SMF database user to the phpBB database.  If your host doesn't allow you to do that what you can do is reinstall SMF in the same database as phpBB.

    Done exactly how ya said and works like a charm.. My host wouldnt allow me to change priv etc.. So I just copied over the config file from phpbb into the same directory as smf and edited setting for same DB..

    I must say the conversion is very good I have prob one issue... Some post have [/img] or [/list] showing in a post.. is there a way of getting these posts to show up the same in the options somewhere..

    Also I have noticed I am missing 15 members from the conversion?

    What I think is going on with the img and list tags is that they are being used in the wrong order.  Like a block level tag inside an inline tag.
    test
    Code: [Select]
    test[/color]  Something like that.

    Missing members? Are they members of a specific type? Banned, not active, etc...
    i havnt checked if all members have been converted over...perhaps i need to check too

    I think you are right they are banned or inactive members..

    What I think is going on with the img and list tags is that they are being used in the wrong order.  Like a block level tag inside an inline tag.
    test
    Code: [Select]
    test[/color]  Something like that.

    Does it matter in SMF which way round you use it? or can you not say put some text in a list and change the font?

    Neoszion in SMF it matters the order in which you put the tags since SMF is xhtml strict.

    You have duplicate entries in one (or more) of your phpBB tables:

    Apparently, people are having problems with viewing their profiles and PM's, as well as others. Furthermore, they're having problems editing their profiles, replying, posting, and PM'img.

    Isn't that related to permissions?

    Create yourself a test user (non-admin) and see if you can reproduce those problems...

    I'm not sure.

    Almost everyone is saying they have the same problems.

    They can't post or reply to all forums, esp. subforums. They can't view PM's or profiles any longer. Nor edit their profiles.

    I've created a non-admin account, and it's the same effect e.e

    Permissions problem, just that.

    Go to admin and fix as needed.
