    I haven't seen anything like this. IPB is closed source software with a completely different file & DB structure from WordPress. With those things in mind, I doubt you'll ever see a migration tool or script come along.

    What are you trying to do?

    thx for reply,

    Ipb sucks with SEO. Using it for more than 8 years and have played a lot with my forum - http://www.conference.ge ... had "good" times as well as "bad" times ...

    Therefore the intention is to migrate everything into WordPress and get the deserved rankings ...

    Other forum soft might do good too, but WordPress is much better solution

    Even with those differences, I believe there might be a way ...

    WordPress and IPB are two different types of software for two different purposes. WordPress is for content publishing, IPB is for community forums. If I were you, I'd look at hitting up sites for forum administrators (like The Admin Zone) and talking to other forum admins about SEO on IPB software.
