How to solve the quotation problem importing from phpBB?

edited August 2010 in Questions
In these days I'm trying to leave phpBB2 and pass to Vanilla2.
I've upgraded phpBB2 to phpBB3 and then used the migrator: all OK.
The only problem is about quotations :/

1) SIMPLE QUOTE =>

I write:

[quote="candyman"]Hello World!"[/quote]

to obtain in phpBB:

candyman wrote: "Hello World!"

and to obtain in Vanilla:

"candyman": Hello World!

2) CUSTOM QUOTE =>

[quote="candyman, in an older topic,"]Hello World!"[/quote]

to obtain in phpBB:

candyman, in an older topic, wrote: "Hello World!"

and to obtain in Vanilla:

":

candyman Hello World!"

3) QUOTE+URL

[quote="candyman, in [url=http://www.myforumurl.com/viewtopic.php?t=1234]an old discussion[/url]"]Hello World![/url]

to obtain in phpBB:

candyman, in an old discussion, wrote: "Hello World!"

and to obtain in Vanilla:

"candyman, in [url=http://www.myforumurl.com/viewtopic.php?t=1234:

an old discussion[/url],"]Hello World!

How can avoid this?

For the first case I could change every "username" entry with @username but for the rest?

Many thanks in advance...
