yet another phpbb3 to smf2 conversion snag
« on: March 11, 2017, 09:46:33 AM »
converting phpbb 3.0.14 to smf 2.0.13 and received errors during the post conversions (see attached images).  looks like all the members and forums came over, however no members show up in any of the member groups.

threads are missing, too.  thousands of 'em.  ack.

Did you run "Find and repair any errors" & "Recount all forum totals and statistics" under Maintenance > Routine.

yes, running maintenance routines helped a tad by now showing thread/post summaries, but threads have dates from 2012 and back - no threads for 2013 forward appear to have been converted.

seems like all the phpBB 3 to SMF 2 conversion gurus are gone ... jay hasn't logged in since 2015 and maragrett since the end of last year.

is there ANYONE out there in SMF-land that can help with this conversion???

hello .... ???
