Upgrading from UBB.threads 6.5.x, UBB.classic 6.7.x, or other products

Introduction

We currently offer import/upgrade scripts in our Members Area for the following forum software:
UBB.threads 6.5.x

phpBB 2.x
SMF 1.1.x

We take the time to make sure all of our import scripts import as much data as possible including things like polls, private messages, and a variety of data. We also include redirect scripts with each importer that will redirect users to the new imported posts allowing for a seamless migration without losing Search Engine Ranking.

UBB.threads™ users. Please note, if you are not running at least version 6.5, you will need to upgrade your forum to 6.5 at the minimum before importing to version 7.

UBB.classic™ users. Please note, if you are not running at least version 6.7, you will need to upgrade your forum to 6.7 at the minimum before importing to version 7.
