    This is a critical step in a Yabb move. I spent hours trying and re-trying to import 11k posts, and it failed over and over, Members came over fine but once I did the edit in the ImpExConfig.php file it worked smooth as silk.

    This was a move was done from YaBB 2.3.1 and since nothing changed in the way of posts, members (the import stuff) it works perfect with the Impex system!

    Thanks to vBullietin for developing this program!

    Not sure if that is the problem. Yabb 2 has categories then boards (forums)
    I have 6 categories. Some imported ok some didn’t. Here is my layout:
    Category 1 has 5 boards, after import only the cat. shows (special YABB members only)
    Category 2 has 1 board, after import all is OK (special YABB members only)
    Category 3 has 1 board, after import only the cat. Shows
    Category 4 has 7 boards, after import only 6 boards’ shows (one with different name but not a big deal)
    Category 5 has 1 board, after import only the cat. Shows
    Category 6 has 1 board, after import only the cat. Shows

    MY Yabb board usierID: vbulletin password: temp1 (view only account)
    MY Vbulletin

    Thank you

    Are the forums sub forums or top level ones ?

    If they are sub I suggest moving them before the import.
