I scanned through the topics on the phpbb converter but was curious to know. if Im comming from a straight phpbb site to a joomla with fireboard site does the converter already take care of this or will I need to find a converter for phppbb to joomla as well?

Well I\'m not quite sure what you mean by straight phpbb site. I guess you talk about a website which uses phpbb as it\'s core with some sort of portal build around it. As an answer to your question, it fully depends. Do you know if the portal has changed some of the tables in your db? If so, than the script would need adaption, if not the script should be able to convert just fine.

First you should ask maybe, what you want to convert from your portal: just your forum? all users? all posts in the portal etc.

yes to be more clear,

the site i will be converting over does have one of those portal mods phpbb, but im not really interested in that. All i want is the users, and forum posts, pms, announcements ported into joomla. I wasnt sure if the converter only transfered in the users to the forum or joomla as well but I guess i need to wrap my head around the whole idea that fireboard is actually part of joomla and not so much independent.

Yeah I guess that\'s the thing :) Anyway, I think can easily be modified. It\'s just a matter of editing some queries...
