  • Bugs in Ikonboard 3.1.2a Importer

    Hello, i just tested the new Ikonboard importer for vB 3.0.1 and found some Bugs:

    The users cant log in with their old password. I know, this is because the IB Password is crypted. But i would suggest a soloution like IPB. They change the login code to check in witch way an entered password is encrypted.

    The Last activity Date, Last log in date and so on are not converted.

    The converter have problems with some tags. Here a few examples:

    Konverted Thread: http://test.midgard-forum.de/test_fo...read.php?t=411

    Source Thread: http://www.midgard-forum.de/ikonboar...t=ST;f=2;t=331

    Here i try to describe the problems:

    - In a few postings in this thread, you see that the quote tag isnt converted corectly.

    - In the first posting "B&R" is converted to "B&R"


    - The title of each post is "Imported post" it should be set to blank. The first post of the thread should have the title of the Thread as usual in vB

    In the third posting, the signature of imported_nixonian is wrong:

    Code:
    Midgard publications are never late. Nor are they early. They arrive precisely when they mean to.
    <span style='font-size:22pt;line-height:100%'><span style='color:green'><span style='font-family:Andy'>Don't panic</span></span></span>

    instead of:

    Bug with polls

    All converted polls are public pools. They should be non public as standard.

    If you vote in a converted poll, all poll lines, ecept the one you voted are deleted.

      It seems, there is a problem with pm's too. I need to test more, but it looks like, that pm's arent displayed after importing.

          Did you update all the counters after the upgrade?

            Yes, i did.

            I just opened the test forum to all the members. They will find more bugs i think.

            I know, IB Conversion is brand new. And i guess i am the first one who is using it. So it is not unusual that i find the majority of bugs

              Now, I thoroughly hope, this one is not selfmade.
              I changed the bbcode_quote template to look like this:
              Code:
              <div style="margin:20px; margin-top:5px; <if condition="$show['iewidthfix']">width: 100%;</if>">
              	<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px">
              	<if condition="$show['username']">
              <phrase 1="$username"> $vbphrase[originally_posted_by_x]</phrase>
              	<else />
              $vbphrase[quote]
              </if>:
              </div>
              	<table cellpadding="$stylevar[cellpadding]" cellspacing="0" border="0" width="100%">
              	<tr>
              		<td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset">
              			$message
              		</td>
              	</tr>
              	</table>
              </div>
              to make it more iB-like. But the double "quote" phrase just lets me think.
              Would be nice to know, if this could cause the problem (or at least add to it) so that we might restore the original template for the import; or if that is of no importance.

                PM not imported

                I just looked at the database.

                All imported PMs have the userid = 0 in the pm tales (pm and pmtext).

                  Assigned User show up as &quot;imported_&quot; after import

                  When i imported the old users to vB i assigned some already existent users in vB to old users. But that did not work. All those users were imported as "imported_".

                      Next bug:
                      The imported users all have "no editor" chosen as default. This should be, as it is with new members the "standard editor".

                        Now, there are 2 weeks passed since i reported the bugs with the new Ikonboard Importer.

                        I really would like to know, when you will fix the bugs so i can switch from Inkonboard to vBulletin.

                          Did you guys try reporting the bugs in the bug tracker?

                            I've reported them in the tracker but have gotten no response yet.... So just to see what everyone has to say i'm posting here too...

                            Ikonboard did not correctly import the PWs, User Groups, the properties of a forum (whether it is only accessable by certain usergroups) and a few more things that i'll post after i get responses to those things..
