There isn't one yet...

You could always convert SMF to phpBB, and then convert that to PunBB...

Re: Migration from SMF

I would email Chacmool a dump of the database and see if he could add it to the Convertor as well wink

As stated above... just send me a sql-dump of you forum database and I'll see if I can add it to the current converters. Mail is chacmool@gmail.com.

Edit: I downloaded SMF and installed it... and damn, that forum is nice! It was so easy making the converter, I think it took about 2 hours. I've been working with the UBB.threads converter earlier today, and that work can be described more as: "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH! Frustration!!!" smile

Anyway... send me that sql-dump so I have some real data to try with (or, if you don't like to send it to me, I can send the converter for you to try with).

Hello.

Re: Migration from SMF

Before Migration Actions When you have made the final decision on your switching,  start from the very beginning: Install bbPress forum – it’s essential to install your new forum on WordPress. Analyze your users visits – it’s better to perform migration, when the number of your site/forum users is the lowest. Inform your website visitors about the migration – so that they were ready for the site maintenance or its totally new look.
