Question I want to migrate my forum to Kunena ...
"I want to migrate my forum to Kunena because Kunena has a future and, for me, it's the way to go." Whether we're discussing Kunena or any other web-based forum application, this is probably a question that every website owner has encountered and wants to know the answer to. It's not simply a case of how to convert from "brand-X" forum - and you can substitute anything for "brand-X" - to Kunena but it's also a matter of how do you preserve the cultural history of you web community, something that you and your users have invested their heart, their time (and possibly their money) into as well. How do you capture and preserve the essence of the community to keep it alive and to prosper and thrive with the reassurance that Kunena is a product with a future and that it will also support your community as it continues to grow?
Also, Agora is a very good forum but the developer ran into some problems so people are looking to make a change. There are probably some very good forums that will be migrating to ninjaboard because there isn't a proper converter. If Kunena wants to boast about how many downloads they have that's fine but the total downloads doesn't equate to how many people have active forums. IMO, active forums are the ones who make forum components popular in the long run, not downloads.
It seems with an existing "forum importer", even if not perfected, the "get it into Kunena" half of the problem is thought out. It's the "how to interpret the original data" part that needs a solution. I would be very happy if I could simply export my existing forum data into a CSV, format it and manipulate it in Open Office then import it into my new forum.
Hopefully, I explained that well enough for it to make sense.....
So we are actually doing just what you are saying: Kunena Importer takes data as pre-formatted arrays. So we have already solved most of the problem and the only thing you need to do is to take our example exporter and fill all the custom data into it.
