Conversion and Import Scripts

Ken M -- on Feb. 11 2009 at 04:43 pm GMT, from Raleigh, NC

Looking for ways to migrate content from sites in other forum/CMS software.

Hello everyone, just started looking into YACS and wow am I impressed.  Anyway I have two sites I am looking to move to Yacs in the next few months.  One of them is a Xoops site the other an SMF site.  The Xoops site is target 1 and it is using CBB 3.01 and is a 2.0.17 Xoops install (I believe, I can check).

Now for conversion most things I can do manually without being overly inconvenienced, that is until we get to the forums.  I need a way to somehow import the forum discussions, replies, users, etc. into YACS.  The only thing I found thus far is an Import CSV script.  My French is terrible from not being used in years and I don't trust Babel Fish most days but from what I read I don't think that will get me all the way there.

So what import or conversion functionality is out there.  For any CMS or Forum software (as maybe I can two a two part conversion).  To get my forums migrated?

Part 2 of this question of course is if there is no bulk import utility or conversion script I can use...  well let me put it this way, I am willing to hire someone to build me one.  So I am perfectly willing to hear quotes at this point as well.

Thank you for your time and reading this,

Ken

Is there any such bulk import from CSV available for use on YACS? I am having a monster time with a problem and this could save me hours of work every week.

Thanks, I looked around some more.  Looks to be java and then builds the script file.  When I get home tonight I will start working on it.  Thanks.

Brings up a side question, is there a published ERD for YACS?

If you need me to attempt French let me know!

Have you used that software before.  Language of the source. PHP, Python, Java?  Is it free?
