All those views are probably from people like me wanting to know what webwiz is. I had never heard of it until you posted this. It doesn't look like we have a converter for webwiz. I'm afraid you are out of luck, sorry. You can however request a converter. But the line for this list is long as well.

Hi thanks

I am posting this here so that it might help someone.

I was using 9.63 webwiz, found a converter for phpbb2 ( was old)

it gave some problem initially but little editing of code (manually changing table prefix)
after that it was smooth conversion from phpbb to smf

finally it seems All settled.
