    • What's the latest on WebBBS?

      Nearly a year ago I sent in several thousand WebBBS messages as test data. Plus a functioning WebBBS-->VB3 script (limited, but basic functionality).

      I'm surprised to now see a request for test data in the poll.

      If I provide it again, will it help to bump WebBBS up the priority list?

        A year ago ? vB3 was only released in march.

        Though if you PM me the details I can look at it.

          Yep. I rounded it off. 10-11 months = nearly a year.

          I've long ago mislaid the support ticket number that started our correspondence, Jerry. But you & I exchanged numerous e-mails on this subject.

          I forwarded a WebBBS->vB3 script . . . one that started out as webBBS->vB2.X, but which had been hacked by user "tmorris" to perform some basic vB3 functionality. For example, it included support for "threading" (maintaining the parent/child relationship between posts & replies), but it didn't import any USER data. All posts were imported as those of a "Guest User".

          The results of a test run of this script can be seen here:

          http://www.binderbulletin.org/forums...splay.php?f=58

          I also forwarded some sample data. Most of which I still have -- still unimported.

          One unresolved riddle, as I recall, concerned older versions of webBBS which stored dates in a text fashion; whereas newer versions stored UNIX-style dates. Others were relatively trivial -- like importing quotation marks (stored as " ) properly.

          What other details would you like me to send? I'm willing to send/share anything that would help this along.

          Best,

          Bill

            As have I, I had a quick look as the system name seemed familiar though my memory was found wanting.

            I do apologize, I must of over looked this one.

            I dare say with the time that has passed and my lack of recall on the matter it would be best to start a new ticket and re start the process, so that I can look at it a fresh.

            The only thing I can think is other importers took priority on shear numbers of requests and that in the normal course of house keeping I deleted the data by mistake, as unless I have permission, I don't keep user data once an import has been written.

            Also with the improvments in impex over the last year I would expect that the user Guest status can be soved also.

                  If its a default phpnuke install PM me and if you can give me a copy of the database I'll be able to do the importer, its just finding a default install that is the difficult bit for me.

                  • Just a more strategic sales strategy...

                    Perhaps providing a bridge(importer) between the old vBLite/vB1.x users to vB3?
