QuoteAll we need is an SMF converter to import WordPress posts. The rest of the blogging platforms can already be converted to WordPress anyway.
QuoteBut i think this topic is now probably already defunct of purpose, as there exists a WordPress plugin that will do the conversion perfectly fine (i have tested this several times and in fact, i am using it on my current successfully converted forum) from WordPress posts to SMF topics, even though it currently only supports export to SMF 2.0, but the genius developer has promised to make it work for SMF 1.1 soon:http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=387438.0

I don't know the official SMF policy, but wouldn't they rather import from a WXR file, which is the official way of doing it? Or at least have a mod that doesn't encourage one to buy anyone an alcoholic beverage?
Quote from: sharks on July 07, 2010, 09:20:32 AMI'm glad you managed to realize that.
QuoteThat is also the same reason why i didn't inform you earlier as the approach to the conversion is different.
QuoteEven then, there should be no need for me to inform you, as you should have come across the WP to SMF plugin post, as it's always been roaming on the first page of this board's message index.
QuoteAs for the beer, i think it's optional. At least, it's not like the Charter fees that SMF used to force (and ultimately failed) on everyone to be able to download the latest 2.0 RC.
QuoteEither way, i hope something worthwhile eventually comes out of this thread.
