How reliable is the phpbb2jforum importer application?
I've just been trudging through error after error - making changes to my phpbb tables and data to 'force' it to work but each time I fix one problem I find another one. I notice that the date on some of the class files in phpbb2jforum are from 2004 and I've updated my phpbb forum a few times since then (currently on 2.0.19 which is by no means the latest version).
I've got another problem now to do with topic_vote field but I just don't want to waste much more time on this because I have no idea of how many more errors I will have to fix or if indeed I will ever get a working forum database in the end.
Has anyone used phpbb2jforum successfully in recent times and if so which phpbb version did you import from?
I really wanted to avoid getting the phpbb2jforum source and start friggen with that cos I've already got my own Java projects I have to work on. [originally posted on jforum.net by golfman]

I think it's more a case of 'no response at all' instead of 'really long response time'.
We've effectively pulled the plug on shifting to Jforum for this reason. Hopefully they're all just away at Java conferences somewhere staying in nice hotel rooms and they'll all return and provide support again one day but until then my forum will have to remain stuck in a PHP world.
