QuoteMigrating Database from PHPBB2 to Simple MachinesHello!I *really* like this forums script, and since my World of Warcraft guild has been using PHPBB2 for a pretty long time now, I would really love to switch them to these forums but I don't want to loose all of the posts and member accounts.Is there a way to migrate the database file from PhPBB to SimpleMachines so that people don't need to create new accounts, etc.? I know the structure is completely different and all, but I would really love to make the switch.Please advise. Your help is greatly appreciated!
QuoteGetting an editor on moderated posts/threads in AdminCPI asked this on vB.com and have been advised by Jake to ask here... I have a few forum categories where my team gets to moderate the threads and posts made in them. However, quite often we need to edit these threads not just in terms of content, but in terms of the format of the post, and the fact that we feel they may not be appropriate to validate in the moderated forum but they would be fine in another forum. It would be nice if there was a way of editing the format of a post/thread whilst within AdminCP Moderation area as well as ammending the forum category to where the post will show - instead of validating it first then editing it straight away. Is there a way to accomplish this? How difficult would this be folks? Thanks.

Quote from: Polymath on September 14, 2006, 05:43:03 PMOhh, and there is one thing that annoys me with peoples SMF sites and thats that you cannot view content until your a member. You practically can't go anywhere at a lot of SMF sites, I look at a lot to see what others are doing with theirs.I know that Google don't like that for a start. You can have all the google listing you like, but if you can't read it, I assume they dump it. Same with Arcades, not even allowed to view them...places like that I don't hang around.You must have noticed that.. Just a thought.
Quote from: eldʌkaː on September 14, 2006, 09:49:18 PM Well an arcade hardly has useful unique content does it? And if you don't let guests browse your forums, then of course the pages won't appear in search engines.
