Hi all,

I'm interested in converting an old iconboard community to a modern smf one.
Is it generally possible to do this or are the converters too old ?
If they are too old:
Is there an alternative to import only the database tables to a new board with same structure ?

Best regards from germany
Rafael

It depends you can give the current convertor a shot and see how it goes.

@vbgamer - Do you think that it might make a difference if I'd try to convert from Ikonboard to SMF 1.1 with your converter tool and than to SMF 2.0 ?

I don't think it works like that convertors are SMF version specific.

OK, have followed everything and now I'm also stuck at "preparing messages". :(
