I have no idea what the differences are schema-wise between SMF 1.1. and SMF 1.0. Ideally, they're similar and everything will convert fine except for the passwords (because of differing auth schemes).

There's a mass email plugin as well.

I'd like to convert from SMF/Simple Machines 1.1.4 to PunBB.
The old converter only mentions SMF 1.0.5. During the conversion, what is lost, just the user passwords?
Is there a way to send a mass email to users with PunBB to tell them to log in and change their passwords?

As long as your forum have "valid email" rules from your old forum (SMF).
Its easy. Give the "big" announcement at your forum.

Just modified the "login.php", change some information or add more link explanation that will redirect
to Loss Password

http://your-forum.com/login.php?action=forget

Your Member or User forum will follow the process.
And then, the important thing is "modifying" some parts like:
1. /lang/English/login.php
2. .................../mail_templates/activate_password.tpl
3. etc..

That what I did (a year ago) to convert thousands of my member forum from SMF into PunBB smile

I'm now done with my latest converter-tool: all converters under one roof!

I've now also added YabbSE v1.5.5 to the list of converters. If someone want's to convert a forum, please try out this beta instead of using the converters from the download page. I've also fixed a bug where some people couldn't use the converter as they had special characters in the database-name.

Screenshot: here.

If you use it, please tell me what you think.

Edit: Beta-url removed. Download from punbb.org instead.

picture does not come from the link right now...
