Hey, i'm just stating the facts about what happened with the Charter fees. Whatever brought that concept to fruition or whatever happened to cause it to be canceled eventually,
It has never been cancelled...

Quoteis not the point here
Oh yes? Then why did you bring it up?

Quoteand i have no interest in the internal company matters, other than making the software better. I never stated that i'm unhappy with SMF or the team. But i am indeed extremely disappointed with your unwillingness to do anything without a personal reason that would benefit your own interests.
Because what... I'm your personal lackey?
I don't know you. Why should I be helping you out of pure kindness when I'm already spending my entire days working for the community? Are you more worthy of my attention than the entire rest of the community?

Where are *you* when I need you? What do *YOU* contribute to the community right now, and what have you contributed to it in the last 3 years? Oh, let me think... Right, you're new to SMF! So no one can expect you to have been working for the community for the last 3 years! How outrageous of me to think that you won't do it starting from right now...
Of course, if you look into most of the community leaders' first posts, you'll always see a willingness to help, rather than to come and ask question. My first post on was to share a hack I made to get new post counts next to topic titles. Then I disappeared, and the year after, I came back with... a hack to make a threaded view mode for topics. So... What have your first posts been about? Community contribution? No? They *you* shouldn't be complaining that I'm not dealing with you. I'm not your ******.
Don't you realize that I've already spent a lot of time replying your posts and keeping these threads alive *for your own sake*? Because I do not, and will never have a WordPress blog to convert to SMF for myself... And I still spent some time to try and help you and seek other developers' attention on the matter.
And your comment on me? I'm *selfish*? You're kidding me?

Out of my sight now... Unless you apologize, you'll never get a single more reply from me.

QuoteEver since you first replied in this thread, you have shown only passing interest, so it doesn't change anything at all.
There was no hope to begin with. IMHO, this converter is never going to happen anyway.
Probably not by ME, and certainly not for YOU! That's for sure.
I will not make any deals with you. I've resigned. I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed or numbered.

Blog to forum. A nice and hot topic. I thought we have blog mods before which can convert or import forum to a blog like page. May be those who are in need can see how the code works and use it as a mean to convert blog to forum.

The active one is here (SimpleBlog Mod):
The PMXBlog for SMF (I don't have the link as it may not be supported in SMF).
Lastly, the no-longer-supported one can also be referred to which is here:

They all work as blogs and IMHO could somehow be used as a guide to convert blog to SMF blog if cannot be converted to SMF directly.

Edited: I missed this one:

I have been using SMF for over 3 years now and always recommend it to everyone, but unfortunately i never got the chance to study programming. I always wanted to, ever since i was inspired by discovering SMF and all the different modifications, but never had the personal means to accomplish that in my college years. I bought some self-learning texts, but couldn't quite drill through past the beginner stage. So, forgive me if i am *stupid* by your standards for not being able to contribute hacks or other valuable code to the SMF project.

As for the rest, i think this discussion is hopeless.

I wasn't specifically requesting you to help. I just hoped that you would, since you were replying and asking for info, which i always tried my best to provide. But as it turned out, you never helped and now i'm being shoved around by an SMF bully (YOU!).

Farewell and my sincere apologies for not being a wiz at SMF programming, oh mighty Consulting Developer!

BTW, thanks ⎝⏠⏝⏠⎠ for your hints, but unfortunately i do not have the skills to join these bits and pieces of code together to make a converter. If i knew how to do that, i would have released the converter a long time ago for the entire community to use.
Personally, i have no use for a converter now since i have used the WP to SMF converter when it was first released (i have helped the developer of that WP plugin during the beta testing with my own blog backup, which allowed the plugin to be improved at a drastic speed) and my forum is fully operational. But i have been replying here in the hopes that others like me may have a simpler way of converting their blogs.

EDIT: After thinking about this thoroughly, i have this to say to Nao, before i finally swing myself out.

Hey man

I don't know why you get angry so fast, but i was not trying to pick up a fight with you or anyone else for that matter.

I love SMF more than any other forum software. FYI, i have spent the past long years of my life, daily for many hours on my SMF forum. So, you could say that i have spent more time with SMF than with my gf. :)

Anyway, i just wanted to make it clear that i do not hold any bad feelings against you. If the SMF team appointed you as a staff member, then you must be smart. :) If you do not want to help me, then it is OK. I completely respect that. It is your choice. This forum and software and everything else here is provided for free, which is a miracle in itself. And i certainly appreciate that, along with the millions of other people who use SMF everyday.

So, good luck with whatever projects you are working on and thank you for all the code work you have already done in the past.

Okay, let's forget it, but be careful of what you say next time. There are people hard at work behind this, and even when someone seems to be talking to a wall, there's still a brain at work most of the time!

pleas how can i convert my blogger blog to smf
please any idea?


This thread is 8 years old...

at this time - you still can not...   and, actually, even the blogger -> wordpress converter has not been updated for over 2 years.

(well, to be clear, if you get the database contents of the blogger site, I suppose you COULD write you own importer. However, no one has done so in over 8 years)

Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.
