Guys any luck on this? I am in the same boat here.... and i am also desperate to do this.... any help will be great appreciated.

The point is that there are a lot of people that run sites with phpbb and smartor's album and need help in that to move to vbulletin and photopost. Also i believe that a guy with good knowledge can do this script but for me is out of my strength. I tried but i run in constant troubles.

I was in the same boat as you guys months ago. I am glad I did not wait and manually moved 1300 images from my Smartor Photo Album. There's a bulk upload in Photopost that can upload photos and you assign them to a particular user. It's a pain, yes, and an importer would have been nice but from the response I got when I first inquired, I don't think an importer for Smartor will be available anytime soon. If it's any consolation, I have not regretted moving to Photopost.

How about the comments and the ratings?

You have to move everything manually, even titles and descriptions. And with Smartor's funky way of renaming the files on upload, I had to download all the images so I can associate the titles. It made it more difficult for me since about half of my images are medical/pathologic slides. I don't have that many comments so I did not bother to move them (move here means copy and paste ). Ditto with ratings, no. of views, etc. Thank God, that's over. If only I can write a converter but my field is not computer-related.

I really want this import script as well. It seems to have been done before as I found this in the archive:

http://www.photopost.com/forum/archi.../t-117177.html

But I haven't been able to reach that person. I'm sold on PhotoPost but only if I can import my images and comments from Smartor.

Please, someone give us a solution.

Thanks!

You can attempt to use that script but it is unsupported by our company since it was not written by us or released by us

http://www.photopost.com/forum/showthread.php?t=117901

There is no official supported script released by our company

I will pay someone who is able to make this script (mentioned in previous post) work for the latest version of vBGallery. I have over 1500 images and a ton of comments that I want to migrate to vBGallery. As I said, I'll pay you if you can help me with the migration.

Thanks!

I ended up paying someone $500 to have it migrated. Unfortunately, I didn't get any script or anything as the guy did it on his own. But then the guy screwed me on another project so I'm not going to refer you to him.
