Hello, I’m trying to import an old phpBB2 forum into the new Discourse.
I made the preliminar import from phpBB2 to phpBB3, as stated in your docs.
I had problems with avatar import (no import), and with passwords. Surely Discourse use a different cryptation method than phpBB2, so I was thinking to write some code that at the first login would check if passwords are crypted in the phpBB2 way, check if with phpBB2 cryptation (md5?) password match the saved hash and then rewrite it with Discourse cryptation.
Usually, with the “old good guys” PHP and mySql, it’s just an half an hour job, but with Discourse I don’t even know where to start modifying the source. My old phpBB2 was heavily modified (for such a reason I never updated it to phpBB3), but I know that this is not a good habit and I don’t want to mess Discourse and loose his update automatism, so I’m asking how could I manage my need. Shall I develop a plugin? Any chance to have this feature in a new “beta” version?
