  • Imported [quote] BBCode

    Hello,

    We are working on the import of a large YabbSE board to vB 3.6.

    YabbSE uses a quote code which is somewhat different than vB. Something like:
    [quote author=UserName link=board=26;threadid=9205;start=900#msg529026 date=1184872859]

    vB doesn't detect this format and displays the tag as-is. It makes the forum very unreadable.

    Is there any way to add some kind of support for this quote format, or at least convert all these tags to a plain [quote] tags (without any parameters)?

    What version of YaBB-SE is that ?

    ImpEx tries to parse the source to BBCode that can be used, that can be cleaned up, though depending on the version I can add that to the importer or you could use cleaner.php.
    I wrote ImpEx.

      YaBB SE 1.5.1.

      Another problem was that quotes were imported as """. I managed to fix that by running this SQL query:
      Code:
      UPDATE post SET pagetext = REPLACE(pagetext, '"', '"') WHERE pagetext LIKE '%&quot%';
      But it's better if it'll be fixed at the importer level.
