Want to get involved in developing SMF, then why not lend a hand on our github!

Quote from: Johnfromhere on June 20, 2020, 09:07:59 AMI have checked the forums and can't find the answer to this question. If I have missed it - apologies.I should like to upgrade a small forum from Yabb to SMF 2.0.17.Does the converter only READ the Yabb input, not overwrite it - ie if there are problems, will the original Yabb forum still remain?The reason I ask is that I have installed several mods on the Yabb forum which I haven't worked out how they will (or won't) appear in the conversion.Any help for an old, thick forum admin would be much appreciated.Cheers.John.
QuoteBefore you continueThis converter assumes you have already installed SMF and that your installation is working properly. It copies posts and data from your "source" installation of YaBB 1 Gold into SMF, so it won't work without an installation of SMF. All or some of the data in your installation of SMF will be overwritten.Where are they?The converter should only need to know where the two installations are, after which it should be able to handle everything for itself.Path to SMF: xxxxxxxxThis may be the right path.Path to YaBB 1 Gold: xxxxxxxxYou will need to change the value in this box.
