  • phpBB moved posts

    In phpBB I had various moved posts with a shadow left in the original location. After using Impex I noticed that all the shadow posts had been converted to real posts, with the original title but no content. They were all dated 1970. Is this what always happens when using Impex to move to vB?

    I have no idea what a shadow post is. Is this from a phpBB mod?

      No it's a standard feature. What I meant was that it is just a shadow of where the post used to be before it was moved (a link to the post in the new location).

        Oh, I see. I've never rtun into this before with an Import so I don't know if tImpex takes that info consideration or not. My guess is that it doesn't.

        I assume the real posts are fine, right?

          Yes, the real posts are fine. There are just many duff extra posts that used to be shadows. I'll have to delete everything dated 1970!

            Shadow topics as I understand it are the remains of a moved thread.

            The SQL that selects the threads in 1.79 to be imported uses :

            "WHERE topic_moved_id=0"

            So only the "real" threads are imported.
            I wrote ImpEx.
