Importing from DNN / Active Forums

I'm currently running Active Forums on DotNetNuke and looking to change forum software. I read the blog post at and the Vanilla Porter 1.7 at and neither mentioned anything relating to DNN, nor was I able to find anything in a search of the forums here.

Has anyone attempted this? Is there possibly an intermediate something I could covert DNN to that would then be importable?

Thank you!

    There is no direct import yet, but you could extend the current class (it has a function for each supported forum, phpbb, vbulletin, etc.) It's a matter of mapping fields from DNN to Vanilla.
    Other option is to convert to phpbb or vbulletin and then to Vanilla. Consider using porter plus

    There was an error rendering this rich post.

    From a search there are no intermediate step that could be converted via the porter. you may be out of luck.

    Its an obscure one granted.

    The porter itself is the open source project. You would have to do the map your self, which mean you need to get a decent grasp of both data structures.

    you might be interested in this fork

    that looks further developed.

    grep is your friend.
