After converting my forum from phpbb3, every post has the following note at the bottom:

Last Edit: January 01, 1970, 10:00:00 AM by Guest


I would like to keep the last edited option.. but would rather it showed the correct dates it was edited.. and also not show it for those that have not been edited.

Every post has that?

This is weird, it sounds like the last modifications made to the converter to work for your forum were applied actually to all posts, like this "last modified" field: the converter didn't find a name corresponding to the user last editing the post, so "Guest" was used.
Are you sure it wasn't by any chance modified by some member now deleted, for example?

Start phpMyAdmin, goto tabel smf_messages, choose SQL and run this command:

UPDATE `smf_messages` SET `modified_name` = '' WHERE `modified_name` = 'Guest';

(if your prefix not smf: replace with your prefix)
This will fix this.

Great! That fixed my forum as well - I also had same problem after converting from phpbb.

Means that the converter still has this bug and need to be corrected.
