UBB & Blogger conversion scripts TO Slash

posted by Krow on 01:34 PM October 10th, 2002   Printer-friendly   Email story
I have a large website that I am about to change to be Slash-based, but I have a truckload (800+) users already registered to my UBB installation. Is there an off-the-shelf script to create them as slash-users ? (same username / password) Also any other scripts to move the UBB topics to slash-format ? (I read the article here already) I also have a bunch of blogger blogs - is there a tool to migrate those posts to slash also. (I did a heap of looking around all over but couldn't find anything)

  • Well, There might not be a ready-made script, but I think it could be done. If you have a budget for this project, you might want to get in touch with the folks at openflows http://www.openflows.org [self-interest alert, I do freelance work for them]. They host a bunch of slash sites and have a good understanding of the process of converting other stuff to slash. Maybe you can fund the creation of a GPL script to assist others in similar situations?
