Well you can set in each persons profile a Custom Title. You could also set a membergroup and just have it do nothing (clear everything on permissions so it isn't granting nor denying any permission).

In SMF 2.0 you can do inherted permissions, so things like that would be easier and let it inherit permissions from another group.

Hmmmm i assume the custom title's are editable by the user though? So i'll have to stick with creating groups without permissions i think.

I might look into 2.0, i read on the main page that it was early beta though and not really ready for live use, though maybe i'll go skim the major thread and see what kinda bugs are present.

Wait i see the custom title is only admin editable. Perfect!!!! Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

Yes you can make it changeable only to admins via removing it in permissions

Sorry, I'm a just a beginner. Can anyone tell me the steps to do after I downloaded the converter and phpbb2_to_smf_sql?

ThorstenE

the steps:
0) Read the docs: Converting to SMF ;)
1) Install SMF
2) Upload convert.php and phpbb2_to_smf.sql (both in SMF directory)
3) execute convert.php from the browser

Thank You! that was the push i needed to get me to read better :)
I was clicking on the link that said 2.0.19+, and ending up back here ... this time I clicked on the word "here" in the opening paragraph and went to the d/l area where all was well :D

PS it seems to have worked fine, i'm going back now to give it a closer look but at first glance all seems well :D
Thank you all very much!!

When I try to download this converter, I keep getting linked back and forth between the two topics,... can someone point me to the actual file please? and some instructions for this converter would be helpful as well.

Thank you.

phpBB v2.022 to SMF 1.1.7

I am trying to convert my PHPBB 2.0.21 and so far so good, but when I put in the two path names of the smf and phpbb I get an error that says: This converter was unable to find SMF in the path you specified.

This is the location: http://bandittransamclub.com/smf [nofollow]

The smf is there, so I don't see what I'm doing wrong.  If I give the wrong password to the smf, will I get a different error message?

ThorstenE

the path for SMF ends with .../smf
the path for phpBB ends with .../forum

... should be automatically detected by convert.php

GreySkull-1

Referring to the converter page that ask you to enter the "Path to SMF:" and the "Path to phpBB2:"

Nothing I've entered seems to work. Although I quickly get a

"Converting...
Successful.
Recalculating forum statistics... Successful."


nothing has changed.

Any ideas on the correct path?

I've tried umpteen hundred combinations and none work.

some examples:

/hermes/bosweb/web166/b1663/d5.XXXXXXX/public_html/smf

/d5.XXXXXXX/public_html/smf

/home/XXXXXXX/public_html/smf

/home/users/web/b1663/d5.XXXXXXX/public_html/smf

d5.XXXXXXX/public_html/smf

I've tried multiple combinations in both the SMF and phpBB boxes.

Thanks in advance.
