After 4 years, still no way to migrate from myBB 1.8 to SMF - ?
« on: December 27, 2018, 05:59:00 PM »
I know this is volunteer work, and I understand that there have been different priorities - But more than 4 years have passed since people posted that they would like to migrate from a productive myBB (1.8+ is strongly advised). Additionally, myBB's greatly supported merge function is a key to migrate from even more bb systems, so effort in other converters might be saved by allowing a "xBB -> myBB -> SMF" migration chain. myBB has stated that they stick with gradual improvements from 1.8 (moving towars a V 1.9) instead of a disruptive redesign of their system (V 2.0 currently no pursued), so 1.8 will be around for a bit above the past 4 years in one way or the other.

So: Will there be a bridge for poeple who actually want to go SMF in the near future? Or has anyone found a working process chain around it (e.g. myBB -> phpBB3 -> SMF)? Or will everybody but IPB, vB, phpBB, or YABB be trapped, not able to migrate to SMF?

Again, I appreciate every minute people dedicate for free to such projects. Still I am suprised that this has not been of any priority...

Just made one due to your posted. Tested on my small MyBB 1.8 board. Most things should work ok.
