@julian yep this is really a big thing to consider. Already submitted the data needed on the importer, i'd like to help but im still new in nodejs and nodebb. so far this is getting really interesting.
One of the things im starting to like on nodebb is the ability to create groups and have a little something for them like the header and users posts.
If everything is over modules, why its not on widgets? I would love to have change some stuff on the fly like on custom pages plugin.
Ex: show a particular category posts for that group.. show a possible calendar (this plugin this works?!) and so on...
Thread tools: Edit poster/adopt post
The admin should be able to switch the owner of the post. (right now I have orphan posts left over from import and the only way to change their owner is to use the redis-cli). Probably not a very popular/useful feature in general, but should be simple enough to implement because why not?
@a_5mith good work mate, turns out the bug was originated in the ubb importer but never actually surfaced till I updated the importer plugin few weeks ago..
fix for admin's post not getting imported in this PR. https://github.com/a5mith/nodebb-plugin-import-smf/pull/1
also use the latest nodebb-plugin-import v0.1.4 to get more fancy bbcode support (details also mentioned in the PR thread) - the latest importer plugin also allows the topics and posts to be created even if there isn't a uid, however NodeBB 0.4.2 is throwing an error when creating topics with no uid, so you might need to wait till I update the importer's support to NodeBB 0.5.0 once it's released (discussion here)
I will push more PRs tonight for the other exporters I know of (phpBB, vbexporter, ubb) to patch and reference them back here
