    phpBB avatars are imported either from the local drive, so a full and correct path is needed or a URL. You have the option to import them or not on the user import module.

    Hi guys...

    Although my users successfully were imported from phpbb 2.0.6 to VB 3.0.7, no avatars were imported.

    There IS a customavatar folder in the MySQL DB, but there is nothing stored there.

    Did anyone else successfully import avatars?

    Thanks,

    Khashyar

    The have custom titles that identifies what group there are in, in their user profile ?

    If its been imported into user.usertitle then the users can be sorted on that.

    That helped a lot Jerry! Thanks! Now I just need to seperate them by their titles that "I" created on my previous board.
    Is there an easier way to do that? I imported all Imported users over to Registered users. Some are paid members, some are not.

    but not the rest and for that matter, I can't get all my imported members to show up on my memberlist LOL
    Then if two are there either they were hosted remotely or the avatar path was wrong ?

    Move the users from the imported group into the registered group to check the memberslist.

    PHPMyAdmin, is that something I need to download? I don't recall d/ling it unless it came with the VB download I did Wed.

    Thanks!

    customavatar is a table within the vBulletin database, do you have phpMyAdmin ?

    That would show if there are any in there at all to start with.

    Are there a number of entries in the customavatar table that is the same as the number of avatars that should be imported ? or is the table empty ?
    Jerry,
    Where do you find this? I have searched high and low. I got my avatars to come over (phpbb2 to new VB (which I love btw) but they don't show up on my imported members.

    TIA!

    I would need to see the database to see how the path to the avatars are stored, I've caught 3 diffrent ways, there must be another one now.
