Betreff: Universal Merge and Conversion Tool for Viscacha

as we have reached a stable version (0.8 Gold) I am currently writing a new tool for the Viscacha Admin Control Panel. It allows you to import data from other forum software and other Viscacha installations. This is a first concept and I am currently implementing import functions for Viscacha, CuteCast, Woltlab Burning Board and phpBB. It will take some time to implement all the stuff and test it. If you have a suggestion or data to test the script, please let me know. See the screenshot for a first impression. Any thoughts are welcome.

Nice feature! Could be usefull to convert from another forum.

I'd like to see an import module for BurningBoard lite (which should not be differ much from the 2.x BurningBoard). Wink

These are really great news!

I have no experience with Cutecast or Woltlab Burning Board, but I can help doing some testing with Viscacha and phpBB3 merging tools if you need another tester.

In my opinion, the permissions conversion is not such a big problem because it´s something to be done by admins. It is different with passwords, which are private for each user. If there is no good way to import them, the only idea I have is to make the phpBB3 conversion script generate a list/log with all members who have lost their password in the conversion (so Admin then can send a mass email to all those members with an advice and instructions on how to recover it as soon as possible). However, in most cases this will not be necessary if you merge data in a clean Viscacha installation.

If you are planning to add more scripts to this tool, I think it would be a good idea to start with the most famous/usual ones: SMF, punBB,...

It´s a great idea to implement this tool. Thanks!
