Conversion and Import Scripts
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,
