    Hi Jerry,

    To point 1:
    Oh, okay... Well, then forget about I didn't know that it won't work with admin accounts, sorry...

    Currently the 301/404 script is only set up to redirect from the last forum that what imported from, you can change this by renaming the import{table}id column to something else then changing the 301/404 script, that way you can support any number of import board redirects.
    Yeah, that seems to be a good idea... Let's see how I realize this (I thought of making a new table which stores all imported IDs and their new IDs...)

    To point 2:
    Yeah, correctly. closed=3 and the existance of a pollid (which equals the new thread-id) means that the "thread" is only a link to the one in the new forum.

    To point 3:
    I used the newest available at vBulletin-Germany's members-area:
    ImpEx build version : 1.67
    The Version of the wBB-module is 1.16 from 2006/09/15.
    Maybe you didn't understand me probably... User-Groups are imported, but the users that are put into them are not correct. For example, I have a user-group for team-members. Before converting in wBB there were ~7 members or so included. After importing in vBulletin, there are 65 team-members. And all users in imported groups are banned...

    To point 4:
    I have the latest from vBg-Member-Area - signatures are not imported and for avatars the importer would have to ask for images/avatars-path (because it's saved in the same way as attachments), but it doesn't..
    (edit)
    As I just saw in phpMyAdmin - Impex copies the avatar-id, but not images to the vb-database. Also the entries in customavatar-table are missing...
    (end of edit)

    I was using wBB 2.3.5 (but I'm quite sure, there are no differences in SQL-structure compared with 2.3.3) to be imported to vBulletin 3.6.1.

    (edit)
    In the meantime I've discovered another little bug. Impex is able to convert custom user-titles. But it forgets to set the customtitle-flag in vB-database. So if you run "Update Counters" in admin-panel, all imported titles are gone...
    (end of edit)


    Thank you for your support :-)

    I don't understand what you mean there, ImpEx will only fail on assosiation with a admin user, as you have to do them via the admincp after the import.

That's probably because it is one entry in bbX_threads - but it has a poll-id and the flag "closed" is set "3". It would be very good if Impex could skip these "dummy"-threads...
    So all threads marked with closed as 3 is a moved thread in wBB ?

    That must be a bad import or a wrong version as ImpEx imports usergroups so that it can organise the users.

    4) A little feature-request: do you think it would be possible to import avatars and signatures as well? I mean signatures are in bbX_users saved plain, without cache or something and avatars are saved in a similar way like attachments (at least custom avatars).
    What version are you using, the wBB importer gets the sigs and avatars ?

    What version of ImpEx are you using and what version of wBB are you importing from ?

    Thanks for the feedback, it makes ImpEx better

    wBB-Module - Little Bugreport and Feedback

    Hello everyone,

    at first I'd like to thank you for that phantastic Impex-System - it's working quite well and it offers many possibilities.

    Now to my points:
    1) I plan to merge 3 forums from 3 different URLs. Unfortunatly Impex tries to interpret the column "importeduserid" as an asociated user (and by the way: associating does also not work at all - no matter what I enter (userid or username in vBulletin), impex tells me that the username doesn't exist, but it does). That is not very useful, I think, because after importing all forums you can't access the old links using mod_rewrite when deleting the importedids... And if you don't delete them, impex won't import any user with an ID higher than total number of users...

    Thanks in advice :-)
