We’ve just turned on our shiny new forums, which run on phpBB3 instead of Simple:Press. Existing posts, threads and user accounts have been migrated across to the new site, and permalinks to old posts and threads should redirect correctly. Thanks, as always, to Paul Beech for the design and phpBB style-wrangling.
As I mentioned in a previous post, I had trouble finding a tool to migrate data between the two formats, so I had to write my own. You can download the Python script here.
