UseBB2Drupal extends upon the core migrate module to provide migration from legacy UseBB 1 forums to Drupal 8. It converts users, categories, forums, topics, posts and IP address bans without overwriting existing Drupal content. It also translates internal forum links to the new Drupal paths.


For instructions on how to perform a migration, please see README.txt.


An example forum can be found at This is a forum migrated without users plus with added Search API pages functionality and custom theming.


If you own a UseBB 1 forum, please test the module thoroughly on a private or local environment and submit any issues to the issue tracker. You can also clone the repo from GitHub and create pull requests.
