I don鈥檛 know of any IPB importers, but there are importers that might help you put together one that will work for you.

discourse/script/import_scripts at master 路 discourse/discourse 路 GitHub

Maybe they can explain how to use it, especially for the stupid ones? :slight_smile:

If it works, it works like other importers, so instructions like Importing from Kunena 3 should get you pretty far. That said, I have seen two very different IPBoard database configurations. Some tweaking will likely be necessary that will require more than just following a recipe.
