Do you mean the blocks or articles and pages?

I’d not think you’d have many blocks, TinyPortal also handles them very differently to SimplePortal so an import isn’t easy.

I'm willing to take a look at this for ausfisho.  It sounds like just blocks atm, but I would also like to know the extent of the content requiring migration. Sounds like it's all got to be extracted from a database backup as the site has already switched portals.

Made a start on this, but there's a few issues with mods missing which had content being pulled from certain blocks, and something is screwing with the TinyPortal layout which I'm yet to find.
