  • SMF import problems

    Hello

    I have just bought a VB license and sucessfully downloaded and installed the latest stable version: Version 3.6.10.

    It is meant to replace a SMF forum.

    I have used Impex but could not import users. (Impex says import was ok, but I find no users on VB)

    Impex scripts say:
    - SMF 1.1.2 (and mine is 1.1.4 - latest stable version)
    - VB 3.6.9 (and mine is 3.6.10 - latest stable version)

    Should I update SMF to 2.0 or downgrade VB to 3.6.9?

    And you have followed all these steps :

    If ImpEx imported a user, without displaying an error, the user is there.

      Thanks Jerry. Yes, Impex says all was imported ok and I have alse check the db and they are there. They just don't show up. Also all threads and forums are empty, maybe because they don't have a user to be assigned to?!

      Can an upgrade/downgrade solve it?

            I have a script that can re-match the userid's to the usernames, though I'll need an email address to send that to so you can use it, best start a support ticket and ask for me.

                      Then I dare say you haven't been though the clean up steps and set up the usergroups.
