Im doing some experiments with migrating the scraped data into an SMF forum.


I've already got the members transferred over - gonna have a go at Boards -> Topics and Posts

Im making progress with an automated import tool into SMF.


 


 


Its early days, occasionally I run into a few mysql errors.


The main thing I don't like is the css formatting, but that can be changed in the forum options - that can allow us to change the spacing etc.


 


 


Lol - this is magical.


Im watching my forum instantly become popular.


I have thousands of members, and years worth of posts. (Evil Laugh)

The script is still running, The Forums got ordered based on topic/post count.


So the scripting one is naturally going to be processed last. Being the biggest and all.


 


 


Lol - I was wondering why it wasn't populating the General Discussion forum/board-  then I realised that it was because I had another default board called 'General Discussion'


Ive 'restarted' the script - so it will populate everything into the right places now.


Im gonna leave it going overnight - its very fast.


Does a few hundred posts per minute.
