Hi,

Was wondering if anyone has experience converting SMF posts to Mambo/Joomla content? (i.e. from smf_messages to jos_content)

juts out of curiosity, WHY would you want to do that?

I had a board exclusively used for news postings.. and would now like them as joomla content.

ah...

the problem that I see is that joomla/mambo scatter information about content over 3 different tables. :(

So, the quick answer is, "No, I do not believe anyone has written any code to do that"
more detail...   doing so would be moderately complicated, especially if you want to try to maintain the original author.

I guess there's always the most tried and trusted method - good ol "copy and paste". It's only around 50 first posts that I want to port over, so probably not too far of a reach to do it manually. The replies to these posts however I also want to go into a specific commenting plugin - more manual work there for sure :)

anyhow, thanks for the reply...

Marking this as solved, as it seems there is no easy solution.

I wonder though, how possible it is to replace the Mambo news with something that links to an SMF board
