i cant understand what's going wrong.. i tested localy and it works fine now. Do you convert your phpbb again? you should send a Dump of your database to SleePy (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=142124.msg1592218#msg1592218).

I riconvert all now, and it works.

THANKS thorstenE!!!!

Is there a reason why these udates haven't been published to CVS, so they appear on the download page? It just seems silly for the most recent update (over 5 months old!) not to be available publicly. Anywhere.

Further, are you aware that the downloads here require a forum membership, which means they're nearly impossible to obtain (no mention of a membership requirement to download attachments appears ANYWHERE that I could find).

You're not going to get many large converts if the only publicly visible download breaks every single signature in their forums, especially if it looks like you're not even aware that no other downloads are available!

shawnkhall,

I am working on it. We recently moved to SVN and the script has not been updated that publishes it from the repo to the downloads page. Hopefully they will get updated soon :(

In the meantime, you should at least edit the original post to indicate that the attached file will only be visible if they have an account on the forum. I must have wasted half an hour looking around for a link somewhere - that was obviously placed once I had an account and was logged in.

SleePy

Done :)

I used the one I had in the 1.1 repo... Which soon as the script is fixed would be the one on the converters downloads page :)

Hi everyone.
I have another question, when I convert my phpbb2 the message that was signs like "announcement" begane like normal topics.
Is possible fix it?
Thanks. :)

SleePy

SMF doesn't have announcement or global topics by default. But you can sticky them or use a global announcements mod.

Ok, thanks for the reply.
Sorry for another question, if I install mod about global announcement and then I convert, the announcement topic became announcement topic or I have to fix by handle?

SleePy

You would have to do it by hand.
The conversion doesn't support 3rd party mods.

The 2.0 converters are not yet ready.
You can convert to 1.1 and then do the full upgrade package to 2.0 though :)

allright. is it in the works? i'm thinking it might be worth waiting instead of going through the trouble...

SleePy

It is in the works, I don't know when I will be releasing them.

Right now I am in the process of making them work with multiple databases. This is a little tricky as some f the queries are very mysql specific ones.

So which is the correct sql file to use? Either of the two in the OP at 21.95 and 21.93KB, or the one tucked away in reply #501 at 22.07KB?

I think I'd be less confused if there was just one file (the latest) in the whole thread, attached to the OP.  ;)
