Maybe, starter threads for posts are handled differently also.



Its not impossible, but I need to make a mapping of table columns. I'm thinking about exporting each table and making modifications by hand. Nothing I do will affect this forum though.

If password salting means you can't migrate users, you can probably port everything as "anonymous" (without ever actually allowing anonymous posting) using the username text and then re-associate with actual users once they're registered in the new system. I did this to port from a registration-free forum (wwwthreads) to phpBB; with a small number of "regulars" there's not many people to migrate anyway.

I looked through the SMF code a little bit and it looks like there is code there to support bringing in other hashes.  Check out LogInOut.php at about line 306.



I could be wrong though, I just browsed through the code a bit on my lunch break.

From the little I've seen so far, the potential new forum looks pretty good! Cheesy I approve, that is, once we've seen if users and posts can migrate safely.

Is this so-called new forum still going ahead?

I emailed bustin yesterday and he says he hasn't forgotten; in fact he thinks about it pretty often.



Things will happen when they do...

Well yeah, I wasn't expecting to be using the "new" forums now, I just wondered if it was still going to happen, or if it was decided that these forums were alright as it is. Also, I assume that by how it says (c) PMD 2005-06, these forums (or at least this version) hasn't been updated since 2006.

Good idea, though bustin said we should be able to transfer without a problem.  The posts should safely migrate.  At least as long as bustin says so.  Now if it was Inty making that promise, that would be a different story...  >_>



So what did happen yesterday, anyway, bustin?  Was it something to do with GoDaddy all along?  Did they give you any crap for pretending to be me?  Tongue

Aw, come on man. That was a good amount of years ago now and i'm sure i've apologised and even told you i was going through a bad time back then. No need to take little digs at me 3-4yrs after i've been away from the scenes. Nice to see the sites still stable though and long may it continue.
