Building a vBulletin 3.x to Vanilla 2 importer
I'm taking a crack at the foundation of a vBulletin to Vanilla importer this week. I'm going to use this discussion as a place to throw ideas and questions out as I move along.
About me: I'd call myself an advanced (not expert) PHP programmer, mostly because I've never had the opportunity to work closely with another PHP programmer. I only know as much as I've read (snore) and figured out as I've gone along my way the last few years. I understand and have written OOP and MVC-based code, but only have gotten that far in the past year or so. I'm operating at the boundaries of my comfort zone, which is a good place to be I suppose
I say this mostly as way of disclaimer up front that whatever I do is going to be going through progressive improvements and will be a learning experience for me. I'm not going to poop out a polished importer in 10 days or something.
I have Vanilla 2 running (finally) and have sorta gotten my head around the database schema. I know vBulletin's data structure pretty well as I've been hacking at it for over three years (including writing a custom vBulletin/Wordpress bridge). I'm at the base of a big learning curve on the Garden/Vanilla code with only a modest and incomplete amount of documentation available so far. On the other hand I've wrestled with PDFlib in PHP so I'm not a stranger to this situation, haha. Any suggestions and help will be much appreciated.
