While most of my work these days is related to photography, I do have a few other hobbies, one of which is providing support on phpBB.com. phpBB is a forum system, based on a coding language called PHP. As part of that project, I became aware of a smaller, less-well-know forum solution called Vanilla. I wanted to test myself and see if I could create a converter for switching from Vanilla to phpBB3.
Thus, the Vanilla 2 phpBB3 project was born. The project is being hosted by SourceForge and has a numerous features, including a blog. The process of creating the converter will take some time, but it should be worth it in the end.
