I don't have experience with either of those programs, but I think you
can convert them.
It looks like phpnuke is keeping the date in a DATE (or maybe a DATETIME
or TIMESTAMP) column and xoops is keeping the date in an INTEGER column
in Unix timestamp format.
If both of those are true then you can easily convert from one or the
other using the |FROM_UNIXTIME() or ||UNIX_TIMESTAMP() functions.
