Convert Smartor's Photo Album to PhotoPost
 
I currently use phpBB2 and Smartor's Photo Album, a very popular hack for phpBB2. I am converting to VBulletin 3. I would like to use PhotoPost once I convert. Is there any way to import the Smartor Photo Album to PhotoPost?

Thank you,

Do you have a link to their product? I'm not familiar with it and a converter would have to be custom made. We do offer customer services for a fee and omegtron has done several conversions for a fee. If you would be interested, drop him a line.

http://smartor.is-root.com/ is the site. It is the most popular Photo Album hack for phpBB2. I'll try and PM omegtron.

Thanks.

Did you ever get the photos imported. I'm in the same boat and have e-mailed omegatron.

Interesting I dont see any emails about smartor from anyone lately. I had someone ask about this a long time ago most likely the user above.

Hi Chuck:

I e-mailed you Thursday of last week, and again today. I sent mail to the address on your post.

Could you perhaps e-mail me at [removed]
Thanks.

Emailing me directly is no problem but you should get a confirmation email stating you must confirm yourself or your email is treated as spam. I would assume this is the case.

I don't get any reply at all...


never mind...found it in my spam filter :)

Chuck S August 24th, 2005 08:36 AM

Yep whenever you dont get a reply nowadays you know its always a spam filter ;)

One of the reasons why I have anyone who sends me a personal email confirm themselves so I dont get spam

Did you get my request for help? I haven't heard anything back.

Chuck S August 31st, 2005 07:40 PM

Your Lance right?

Yes it was in my spam filter. Haven't got to respond to it yet as we have been busy. I can tell ya though importer take a while to make and test.

ljcaswell August 31st, 2005 07:43 PM

Yes - I'm Lance.

I'm really desperate to get this going, and am willing to pay well. I love my new photopost software, but really need to get those old photos into the new system.

Shoot me an e-mail with a quote and a timeframe....please.

Any word on the smartor import script?

ljcaswell February 1st, 2006 05:43 PM

I requested some custom work to get this working, as I really needed it...said I would pay well for the work, sent them a copy of my DB structure - never heard anything. That was almost 6 months ago.

I had 3 of my staff manually move all the photos and comments into Photopost - took them about 40 combined hours for approx 500 photos.

Nice...

has anyone been able to convert smartor to photopost?

Andy R September 12th, 2006 02:50 PM

I am also looking for a Smartor import. Is there one available?

Chuck S September 12th, 2006 02:52 PM

There is not one available no.

Andy R September 12th, 2006 03:09 PM

That is a bummer. Hmmmm... I have 1,200 photo from hundres of members to move over, not an easy task to accomplish manually. How do you suggest I go about moving over to PhotoPost?

From doing some searching it seems there was an import script for vBGallery. Do you know where that script can be found now that you acquired vBGallery?

It seems that there are a lot of phpbb boards using Smartor. Wouldn't it be wise to create an import script for this? I know you mentioned somewhere that you create import scripts for commercial products but it seems that this could be a big market for you. I think if the phpbb community found out there was such an advanced replacement for Smartor you would get lots of new clients.

Any advice on how to successfully convert to PhotoPost would be great.

Thanks in advance,

Andy

I need exactly that too. I'm converting my phpBB2's photo album to PhotoPost and it's no fun task to move the photos manually :(

I think someone just needs to write the importer for Smartor's album...

Count my vote in.
