    Yes, it is in there.

    Though if you have already opened the board it can't be retrospectively done.

    ah darn I was hoping you would have said yes and there would have been a way to mirage the attachment data to my live vB... its rather said I lost nearly 3 years of attachments... I just assumed there was NO attachment support for phpBB attachment MODs

    That's fine, I'll just work though it with the next person that comes across it in testing

    I do not recall and its too late to run it again I guess, since vB is now live.

    From what I remember when I first ran the script the "Attachment" showed in red [the part where you check the Database, Step 1]. However, my Attachment MOD is not the one that Acyd Burn created but built from it. It came with Categories hierarchy v2.1.x http://ptifo.clanmckeen.com/ as an addon goodie. While its built from/on phpBB Attachment MOD I believe it is some what different. I would doubt you have ever hear of phpBB Categories hierarchy that ptirhiik created.

    As for the Avatars, after I ran that it just showed X Errors in the Error column. I ran it a number of times but it always gave X Errors [I did not even notice a message what the error was].

    Edit:
    I suppose I could set up a vB test board [which I really need to do anyways] and run the covert again or perhaps if you really want to see what is going on I can give you access to it once the convert is ready to run. I am willing to help, in case it helps someone else.

    Thanks guys, I am up and running. After re-running Impex again on Saturday the Private Hidden forum posts came in. Also, when I did it again I shorten the post amount to convert to 200. It took sometime before it completed all posts but at least it got them all!

    Also, test making the phpBB2 forums that are private, public before the import I'd be interested to see if that worked, then I could hunt down the private setting in the phpBB2 database.

    Make sure you are running Impex 1.79.

    Then I recommend clearing out the imported data and trying again.

    Pretty sure, since 50% of my forum is okay.

    I did:
    Maintenance > Update Counters > Rebuild Thread Information
    Maintenance > Update Counters > Rebuild Forum Information
    [Matter of fact I ran all the Update Counter options 2 times]

    Are you sure you followed all the 'After the Import' instructions here:

    http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/impex_cleanup

    If so, the only thing I can recommend is to clear out the imported data and try again.

    started a topic phpbb, VB 3.6 and Post from Hidden Forums

    phpbb, VB 3.6 and Post from Hidden Forums

    I have a number of forums that are hidden unless you are a member of the correct group in phpBB. It seems that all the threads in these forums are messed up.

    I see the thread but there are no posts. Also, the poster that is listed is not correct either. They are all jumbled up and post dates are like 1969/1970.

    My public forums seem to be okay.

    Suggestions? I re-ran the Update Counters a few times.
