Description of problem

My daughter mentioned something she noticed when creating her new forum. That it was possible to move an existing board to your new Forumotion board, although that applied to pHpbb boards as she understood it. Hers is currently under SMF, although I believe that is based off pHpbb. Is it doable if she has access to the data base?

Import conditions


Data import is only possible if the following criteria are met:

You must have a phpBB, inVision or PunBB forum
You must create a Forumotion forum
You must have access to your old forum's database
You must be moving the data to your new Forumotion forum

Well I guess then the answer is no. May I ask though, why only those three formats? Mel, (daughter) was on the verge of going to Jcink before she was advised to use Forumotion. I hope I can tell her she made the right decision.
