I used to have a normal site in html, without portal-system. I did not update it in a couple of months, and it sort of died. Now I want to update the site with new stuff to increase acitivity and interest. Content managers also is better, because they have more functions. I found Mambo, and it is very flexible, the best cms I've ever tried. Intergration is very important, so members don't have to register both at the site and the forum. The forum will also gain more members when people register at the site to get acces to downloads, special articles, etc.
The problem is, I'm not very good at intergrating or fixing php-things myself. I tried alone to intergrate punBB with Mambo, but I had huge problems - then I found out that phpBB was easier to intergrate, and more people had done a Mambo->PhpBB.
I don't want something like Simpleboard, actually I hate it. PunBB is my favorite, but phpBB is also good.
erissiva: I looked for a IPB convertor, but did not find anything. Do you got a link?
I am starting to give this up. My last way out might be to re-install the forum (and say good-bye to all posts and members) and then intergrate with Mambo.
I have looked at other cms's too, but Mambo is my favorite. I think it's great, and I would like to continue using it.
Right now, my plan is to convert to phpBB and get the intergration done (it is said to be pretty easy, and more people have already done it), then if someone get the PunBB->Mambo done, I will switch back to PunBB.
This forum is great, and I'll stick around even if I change to phpBB, because I am using it on a other site.
hcgtv: The link to my mambo site is www.spilldev.net/index.php (The design is horrible right now, I am learning css/div for the first time )
Thanks a lot for help!
