  • Unable to Import forums/catagories from UBB 6.7.2

    Hi Everyone,
    I opened up a support ticket on this but figured I would also post here to see if anyone has run into this problem.

    I am having an issues importing the catagories/forums from my UBB 6.7.2 into VB3.5.3. The import seems go go fine, I get zero errors after I input the paths and I am able to import members fine. When I try to import the catagories/forums I get...

    "Invalid Catagory Object, skipping import"
    "Invalid Catagory Object, skipping import"
    "Invalid Catagory Object, skipping import"

    "Invalid Forum Object, skipping import"
    "Invalid Forum Object, skipping import"
    "Invalid Forum Object, skipping import"
    ...

    I get these errors for the exact number of catagories/forums I have (IE my board has 3 catagories and 15 forums)

    Any help would be appreciated!

        I had another customer with this error about 6-7 hours ago and I rebuilt the ImpEx download with the fix, did you download it within that period ?

            Worth a quick go.

            Download ImpEx then upload and over write :

            impex/systems/ubb_classic/005.php

              Woot that worked!!! Thanks Jerry!

              Lastly, is there a way to import the style sheets from my old UBB classic install?

                Nope, there were some early attempts to import styles but it was discontinued due to the massive amount of permutations between all other systems and vBulletin.

                    It's in the latest ImpEx build. ubb classic and threads are fine for this.
