  • Urgent! Vb3 to VB3 userimport with same userID


    I am importing forum from vb3 to VB3. and Impex is working w/o any problems. But after the import new VB is giving different userids than original VB. I need to have *exactly* same userid. This is required for photopost to coorectly assign photos and comments.

    Is ther any way to ensure that Target database of new VB assigns exactly same userids?

    Please help me urgently, I had to close the site, as this import could not assign photos correctly

    Not possible. There is someone else who was having the same issue.

      If I have 2 vB3 forums, forum A and forum B.

      In for A I have 10 users, userid 1-10. and in forum B I have 5 users with 1-5 userid.

      If A is the target and B the source, ImpEx will not and can't over write the userid's 1-5 from forum A.

      That would be destructive, the primary requirement of ImpEx is to not alter or delete existing data of a forum, secondary is to import. With out that it would be a destructive tool.

      The old user id's will be stored in user.importuserid .
      I wrote ImpEx.
