we are planning to migrate our ~100 user sports team site to IPS. We are using SMF 1.1.11 embedded in MODx CMS, which handles news articles, static content and dynamic content such as team/player statistics. We intend to use IP.Content to handle all the articles / blogs.
We currently use a semi-working bridge between MODx and SMF to sync user accounts and logins, but we should be able to do the conversion just from SMF, discarding the MODx user data, without too much loss of information.
Our SMF installation is slightly modded, in addition to the MODx bridge there's a shoutbox and a 'who voted what' mod installed.
1) Some people seem to have experienced problems recently with the SMF 1.1 conversion, what is the current status? Will the modifications in use cause any problems?
2) We have approximately 100 hundred news articles in MODx which will need to be moved over into IP.Content. They are in the MODx MySQL database as plain html, just header, paragraph and image tags. CSS (which is to be discarded) in an external file, images on the same server. Besides the actual content, I think only the 'time published'- field within the CMS itself would need to be moved over to IP.Content. Is there any way to ease our manual workload in converting these articles to IP.Content? We would probably want to move all the images into IP.Gallery so I'm guessing we'll have to do that part by hand, but if we could just get the html data converted, it would be fantastic.
