Brand new forum!!!

Yey, it's PunBB now!! smile

Got very sick of the old NavBoard, regret even using it! Initially, I had some hopes for it, but now I found out that it's development has been discontinued... So I spend an entire day writing the code that will convert all the users, topics and posts from old flat files of the NavBoard to the MySQL tables of the PunBB. Writing the code is one thing, but verifying that everything was converted correctly was such a pain!! Well, I think it was a success!! big_smile

It got all sorts of nice features, and is also in active development! Enjoy it, and please, do give me some feedback on it, especially if you notice that something wasn't converted correctly.

Hi Dennis,

Congrats with (and thank you for) the migration to the new forum software!

This is a huge improvement indeed.

Re: Brand new forum!!!

manhunt0r, unfortunately there is no trace of those scripts, I must have deleted them after conversion... But if you have some experience with PHP, you can make them your-self, just try to match up the content of the files from NavBoard to the db tables in PunBB. It's a pain, but you'll get it eventually.
