Just want to say thank you for providing such an easy way to move the majority of vBulletin 4.2.x over to SMF using the Converter the SQL file and the change in the source file that needs to be changed to achieve this.
What is missing, are instructions for how to do this conversion for people that are trying to find out.
So what I did, by reading and surmising what was meant was to put both the files required to do the conversion in the root of SMF.
I then made the change to add the line to the source file mentioned in the threads above.
What I found out when I ran the converter was that I couldn't access the vBulletin database, why, because the admin name wasn't allowed to in the MSQL Database area, so I added my smf admin database user to the vBulletin database user will allow all and then ran the converter again, with then no hiccups.
As said above smiles don't come across, nor do the thanks given by people so I am looking through the mods for a Thanks Mod.
What would be nice is maybe a list of essential mods that people think would be good to add in to the SMF core for administrative, permissions, profile, security etc. that are known to work well, as that would help all of us, make sure that hackers and spammers don't get in whilst converting over to SMF when we have used mods in vBulletin that aren't included in their core product either.
Thanks again for making my life not so difficult with the conversion, which I have only done on a test bed so far, still need to work some things out administratively and mods before doing it to my real site.
