We are enroute to visit an old friend with cancer. While there is a solumn component to the trip, we will have fun with it as well.

Try the attached file to convert to SMF. I needed to recount the boards etc after it was converted.

Also make sure your admin account isn't the same username as the one on SMF as it changes the password and locked me out. I think everyone will have to reset their password to login.

I looked in to the script. It was built using mysql so anything before php7 it doesn't like working with mysqli as I found out. There are also errors with using mktime and I'm getting wrong datatype errors also.

I can't help you with an importer from Vanilla to Elkarte, I'm not a coder, just a simple forum admin. I don't know if there are any plans to add Vanilla to Open Importer, I guess @emanuele‍ can answer this question.

I saw your topic on smf forums, but you did not provide information that can help developers understand what problems did you have. Try posting the errors you got into your php error log. I also saw that someone was able to import from Vanilla to SMF, so the importer should work.

Hi

Actually my first choice was smf, and the importer they have for vanilla does not work, I posted on their forum about it and someone provided an alternative version and it did not work either it just hung.

The documentation they provide for migrating is very poor, looking at the smf info it looks very simple easy and straightforward, but in reality it is not

At that point no-one was responding to my post and I could not get any assistance at all... I was dead in the water so I began looking for another alternative and that is how I arrived here.

So... you can see how that is not really an option but in theory a great idea :)
