PunBB Importer 1.40

PunBB 1.2/1.3/1.4 Importer

  1. XenForo Rocks
    Hi everyone,

    I recently had to write an importer for a PunBB 1.2.x install so I decided to make it also compatible with 1.3.x (an 1.4.x?) and release it to the community.

    These are the things I know work (at least for PunBB 1.2.x):
    - avatars
    - bans
    - forums (IDs WON'T be retained from PunBB to XenForo)
    - moderators
    - threads and posts
    - user groups (and a very basic set of permissions)
    - users (passwords are retained and a custom authentication class is provided)

    ** IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO TEST THIS IMPORTER BEFORE USING IT ON A PRODUCTION ENVIRONMENT **
    ** I WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DATA LOSS/CORRUPTION **

    Usage:
    - unzip
    - upload the whole "/library/CodeInMotion" folder to your "/library/" folder
    - install the "addon-cim_punbb_importer.xml" add-on
    - you should now see a PunBB option in the list of available importers
    - for the the "Custom Avatar Directory", input the complete absolute path of the folder where your avatars are stored (without trailing slash)

    Latest Version: 1.40
    Release date: Nov 26, 2012

    NB: I might not support this very much as my work is essentially done.
