I am nearly ready to make the move to my phpbb3 forum, however, I wanted to ask when I make the final switch will all new posts, users etc get copied across as I created the temp phpbb3 version a while back?

If not, how do I propagate these changes before switching to phpbb3?

Many thanks...

Tom

If you rerun the conversion, there is an option for not wiping the stuff you have been doing on styles/templates. e.g. just getting the new posts etc.

Are you sure you want to do this though? Most of our phpbb3 users find on reflection that they would have preferred to stay on our enhanced phpbb2 system.

Thanks for the info.

I cannot see any issues with the forum upgrading to phpbb3?

Main reason we want to move is that embedding YouTube videos cannot be done using the code given by YouTube itself and for non-technical users the workaround we have in place is difficult for them to do.

the [video] bbcode certainly should embed a youtube video.
try posting one here and we will see.

Trying it now:-

Link






It doesn't work and hasn't worked for a year or so. We have to hack the YouTube link code to make it work, using the forums video bb code.


This code, within video bbcode tags does work.
Code:

I'd say give us a few days to see about fixing that.

Thank you, we've been putting up with this problem for what seems like years. I can't believe nobody mentioned this before !
