Title: How to skip steps on a smf converter?
Post by: Ruben Rocha on May 21, 2018, 11:19:51 AM
I am having some issues on the last couple of steps for bans. Bans1 works bans two does not and I have bans 3 and 4 to try.
The problem is it takes two hours to go through boards,members,topics,posts before it gets there.
For testing how do I skip everything to get to the ban steps?

You can edit the .sql file and take out the steps you don't want

I was hoping for a flag not delete the lines.
Oh well.
Thanks

I know what comments are.
So I don't need to do anything with convert.php?
Just the sql file of the converter?
