From Agora Forum to SMF

(1/6) > >>

Hi all,

I got a question which I haven't seen on this forum yet.
I have a Joomla 1.5.9 website, with the Agora Forum.
I'm totally not satisfied with the Agora Forum because of the bugs in it.

Now I was wondering, is it possible for me to install this forum in my ftp and transfer the users (they are in my Joomla section) to this forum (perhaps even also the topics, but I guess that ain't going to work)

If I install this forum in my FTP, will it give problems with my Agora forum, or can I install it and start making everything work and finally transfer to this forum.

Thanks in advance, and if this question is allready asked, eventhoug I couldn't find it, just give me a link to it.


there are no converters for this, because Agora isn't too popular.

Are you sure about it? Agorà is the best Joomla 1.5 native forum, and it's installed on about 30.000 sites.  ;)

I just have modified the FireBoard converter to convert my Agora forum to SMF.
It works for Agora 2.x and 3.x as it appears. However it lacks some features like transfering avatars. I didn't need that, so no code for it.
All instructions from the Fireboard converter apply as well as the patch to allow SMF use Joomla-generated password hashes.

Okay, I downloaded the agora to smf file. But now?
I first need to install SMF on my server. Then add this file into the same root as my forum?

In the explenation page I read about a .sql file and convert.php.
Do I have to use the files which are shown in the link you gave me? (Fireboard converter)?
