  • Importing vblogetin into vb blog - admin blogs not associated

    Greetings! I'm using impex to import from vblogetin into vb blog. The import and user associate works great for normal users but not for the admin users.

    The userid for the blogs for admin users is set to zero.

    Any ideas?

    BTW - vblogetin was installed on the board. I dump the data then reloaded into a new database. Uninstalled vblogetin, installed vb blog, then did the impex pulling vblogetin data from the other database.

    Man, this was painful but worked. I took the following steps:
    1. Created new temp accounts for our three admins
    2. Associated the source admin accounts with these temp accounts
    3. Run the import
    4. Ran manual sql's on blog.userid, blog_text.userid, and blog_text.bloguserid updating the temp userid's with the real admin userids.
    That did the job but there's gotta be a way to build that into the blog import script.

    Also, I was suprised the blog title didn't carry over. Seems like that should have too (and the blog description also didn't import)

      Using the latest version of ImpEx ?

      As the vBulletin 3rd party blog to vB Blog are the only ones that will associate an admin user.
      I wrote ImpEx.
