Convert from myBB to SMF - Problem
« on: November 13, 2020, 11:01:59 AM »
After the conversion from myBB 1.8 to SMF 2.0.17 I have a problem with installing group name plates, I guess that is what you'd call them.

See my sample image:

I've never heard of that problem before... Best to check for other problems, just in case...

I was starting to get use to the myBB files, because myBB has Group Images, where SMF doesn't, you put them in the Theme Images, "Images"

Yes there is but at times it is a nightmare. Themes are not in the cpanel files, most it done right in the ACP where there is a zillion files, make one error and nothing shows.

Yes, that is one major thing I don't like about it. However, when I started upgrading the CZ themes for the current SMF versions then tried converting one for myBB, I had a much easier time converting for myBB than upgrading for smf! Took me maybe two days to convert a theme for myBB from SMF and I've never done it before. Takes me maybe a week or so for SMF!

One thing bad about myBB they don't have any quality skins. The skins are different, like the old way, install the skin then install the icons or images. Well I believe you install the Images first then install the theme.

SMF has come a long way with auto install, can't beat IPB though, your account is directly hooked up to the Market Place, you pay then click install and its done, same as free Applications or Plugins. IPB keeps track of eberything, install a Nulled product and they know it.

Well, whenever things slow down, I plan on converting the CZ themes for myBB and maybe other forums, etc.
