QUOTE (alan sh @ Jun 10 2018, 06:11 AM)
Thanks for the update, John.

When it comes "time" for moving over, what is the process (do we do it? do we email the SQL file? etc.) and how long do you invisage it will be?

regards

Alan


Full details will be provided, but in general based on the current response to this thread, we'll try to handle each on an individual basis and get the conversions done same-day for a couple of users at a time in the beginning, and then increase imports as necessary.

How will admin account data transfer? Will I have to reset my password on my root admin account?


We will reset the root admin account and give you a new temporary password. The board will also be in an offline state when we give it to you, so that you can sort out any issues and change settings (permissions will need to be redone here, for example).

Quick question, what versions of mybb will this conversion handle?

I am not a refugee of Icyboards, but I am running MyBB and might convert back to JFB at some point in the future.. (provided that it too hasn't suffered the same fate as IF..)

The converter covers MyBB 1.8.x since that is what IB is running at this time. It may cover prior 1.x versions as well, like 1.6, but I can't be sure.

Also I want to give a big mention / thanks to spork985 for helping me out with a major issue regarding the converter this afternoon. I've had a heck of a time with the character encoding in MyBB 1.8.x and we both bounced ideas around and he helped me figure it out. He really does care a lot about making sure everyone is able to move off IB.

Thank you BOTH for working hard to make sure that we are able to transition with as little pain as possible!

Thanks for the lightning fast reply Jcink, http://files.b1.jcink.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif will this converter handle only Icyboards, or will it do IcyBoards and MyBB as well?

I am on paid hosting now, but in the past, to get used to MyBB software and skinning it, I did use an Icyboard as my test forum.

Spork has advised me that I can point a MyBB 1.6 database at 1.8, and it will just upgrade it which is pretty much what he did to upgrade all the IB forums to the newer version of mybb.

So the answer is yes, the converter won't just be an icyboards converter after it's all done being written.
