What mods do you have installed for phpBB?  Seems like a problem with a different table structure or something. I can take a look into this.

Thanks for your reply. I only have 2 mods installed. Easy Mod and the attachment mod. My forums have been down for a week trying to get an import done. Any help will be truly appreciated.

Cheers,
Brad

Can I get FTP access sent via PM?  I can try and get this converted for you and see what's going on.

JayBachatero i am so desperate because i dont want my members to leave me... can u make some time for me to convert my forum? i am willing to give u my ftp accesss...

totoy,

SMF is fairly newbie friendly. It is really simple. take a look at our demo site
http://support.simplemachines.org/demo/index.php
Login is just test for both.

Conversion is simple as well. Just upload the convert.php and sql file to your SMF install (SMF needs to be installed before you can convert) and then run the convert.php from your browser. Give it the proper input information and away it goes converting.

The converter works greatly, but there are two tiny problems:

Das Regime lässt Militärfahrzeuge auffahren - doch die Demonstranten schreckt das nicht. Zehntausende marschieren in Rangun für Demokratie. Die Sorge wächst, dass die Junta die Proteste blutig niederschlägt.[/b][/quote]

This is the original posting: http://zeitwort.at/viewtopic.php?p=87237

This is the converted posting: http://smf.zeitwort.at/index.php/topic,5429.msg87237.html#msg87237

This is the resulting html-code
<div class="post" id="msg_87237"><div class="quoteheader">Zitat von: "[url=http://www.spiegel.de/politik/ausland/0,1518,507650,00.html</div><div class="quote">Spiegel.de[/url]"]<b>Zehntausende trotzen den Drohungen der Junta<br><br>Das Regime lässt Militärfahrzeuge auffahren - doch die Demonstranten schreckt das nicht.

The next problem: is it possible to convert:
[align=center]xxxx[/align] and [align=right]xxxx[/align] and [align=left]xxxx[/align]
to
[center]xxxx[/center] and [right]xxxx[/right] and [left]xxxxx[/left]
...perhaps in postings and signatures?

I have to open and save the converted posting, then the format is repaired. But this ist too painful

After much knashing of teeth and pulling out of hair, Jay suggested I use the backup and restore.php files from these forums.

These worked a treat and I cannot thank him enough.

cheers,
Brad

I'll look into fixing the regex issue.  Can you post the original post from phpBB?  Not the HTML output but the bbc tags in the post.  Want to test the regex stuff a bit.

Is that from phpbb?  The quote looks wrong to me.  But maybe phpbb allows linls in quotes.

Yes, this is a quote from phpbb and phpbb allows links in quotes.

I'm just about to try this out on a clients forums.

However, the attachment on page 1 of this thread in the initial post I have downloaded and it states its an .sql file.

Where is the convert.php file available for download?.

I'm probably missing something obvious!!!. Sorry!!!
