  • IPB 2.0 Import - Weird Bug?

    Hey there!

    I just imported a DB from IPB 2.0 to vB. It seemed to work right, but, it seems that the thread count and the replies are not counted... any ideas? You can see here:

    http://www.frunder.com/supportforum/vb/index.php?

    Look at any of the forums, it says there are no reply's but really, there are like 10 thyreads and 50 reply's. Any ideas?

    Here is the original:

    Thanks!

      You need to update your counters by going to your

      AdminCP > Maintenance > Update Counters

              Merge them :

              AdminCP > Users > Merge Users

                Use the 'merge users' function instead:

                  Alright, one more question, and this one I have looked for. How do I change the default thread to display all time instead of just the last 30 days?

                  THanks!

                    In the Forum Manager set the Default View Age to 'Show All Threads'.

                    Admin CP -> Forums & Moderators -> Forum Manager -> Edit Forum -> Default View Age -> Show All Threads

                    Or to update them all at once, run this query (assuming no table prefix is being used):

                    UPDATE forum SET daysprune=-1;

                    After running that query, update the forum counters:

                    Admin CP -> Import & Maintenance -> Update Counters -> Rebuild Forum Information

                        To run queries you first need to give yourself permission to run queries in the Admin CP. To do this, edit this section of config.php:

                        // ****** USERS WITH QUERY RUNNING PERMISSIONS ******
                        // The users specified here will be allowed to run queries from the control panel.
                        // See the above entries for more information on the format.
                        // Please note that the ability to run queries is quite powerful. You may wish
                        // to remove all user IDs from this list for security reasons.
                        $canrunqueries = 'x';


                        ...with x being your userid number.

                            I just added the prefix here? Is that right?

                            UPDATE forum SET vb3_daysprune=-1;

                              Assuming your table prefix is vb3_:

                              UPDATE vb3_forum SET daysprune=-1;
