My one thought on the in-line [attachment] tags would be to convert them to [/code]

Toadicus

Still a lot of leftover UIDs on the bbcode.  Was there a new convert.php to go with that, or just the new phpbb3_to_smf.sql?

Seems to work just that the color tags are out of place.  In SMF you can't put a block element in a non-block element.

Excellent!  That's probably all from me for today, but I will be playing with it more tomorrow and will let you know if I run in to anything else.

Thanks for the great support!

JayBachatero

Ok glad to hear things seems better now.  Any suggestions or comments are welcomed :).

OK, just a couple things I got from looking at a particularly messy post:

It looks like, before some [list] tags, an extra ] is being inserted.  That might have been an artifact of the editor, though, as I haven't seen it elsewhere.

[size] tags in phpbb omit the "pt" after the number.  Would it be possible to tack that "pt" at the end to make size tags work out of the box?

Then, just a general question about SMF: do nested lists work well?  In phpbb we could nest list items like so:

[list]
[*]text
[list]
[*]indented text
[/list][/list] to get nested lists.  The lists I'm looking at out of the box from the converter aren't doing that.  Is this just a syntax issue, or is it not supported?

Thanks![/list]

They work fine in SMF but you need the [li] tag.  I can change the [*][/*] to [li][/li].  Also can you post the HTML code for the post that is messed up?  I want to see what's going on.

That's the HTML out of the post, fresh out of the converter.

One thing I noticed that was particularly irksome was the </ul> preceeding the <a> tag for the link near the top.  Is there a way around that?

Other than that, I was able to clean it up with a little work.

JayBachatero

Ok thanks.  That is from SMF right?  Can you get me the phpBB one?

Getting closer, but not quite!

JayBachatero

Weird.  I tested the same quote and it worked fine.  I did miss the span tag.  Give this one a try.

Thank you for this converter! it works excelent..except the bbcodes..

JayBachatero

Yea use the latest file from my last post.  I haven't updated the main file yet until I get all the bbc bugs squashed.

Seems to be about the same issue.  Is this a syntax limitation based on the bbcodes I was using in a way not supported by SMF?

JayBachatero

Ok give this a try.  Also SMF supports the  tag in case you want to use raw HTML like that.  It can only be used by admins only due to its security risks.

Augh can you check and make sure that entities where converter correctly?  phpBB uses utf8_bin for text fields so hopefully everything transfers correctly.

Yep, everything went smoothly, only some minor errors with phpbb smileys but nothing else.

honda2008

Hi,
since SMF and phpBB3 Databases are in my hosting on different MySQL servers, conversion seems to be impossible. Is this correct?.

Thanks for helping me!
