  • 1,000,000 Posts Import Completed

    I just completed my import from UBB.

    I’m concerned about ubb code that did not make the transition, such as this post on the original forum:
    http://duc.digidesign.com/showflat.php?Number=1300545

    Looks very different on the new forum:
    http://208.86.158.125/showthread.php?p=1265341

    It appears the bulletin points are the issue. Has anyone seen this before? Can it be corrected?

    Just needs some cleanup with the bb code, all imports typically have some HTML that is parsed that doesn't make it correctly.

      Thanks for the reply.

      Is that something I just go through manaully or is there something I'm missing?

        Is there any other HTML that is broken or that you'd want to clean up ?

          Thank you for you help Jerry. I've come across about 2 nagging issues.

          It seems that imported quotes have an extra space in the BB code so they parse in the posts like:

          [ QUOTE ]
          I just added 5 buttons to move one item at a time.

          [/ QUOTE ]

          Is there some query I can run to clean that up and remove the space?

          Also, if you go to this thread and review post #6 you will see a sample of what many of the signatures are doing:

          You will also notice in that same posts smilies that are not meant to be there are parsed.

            Oh man, another issue I have is whenever you view any of our 82,000 member profiles this error is parsed at the top.

            Warning: mktime() expects parameter 4 to be long, string given in [path]/includes/class_userprofile.php on line 260

            I can fix the issue by manually completing the birthday fields but to do all 82,000 might take a while. Can I run a query for that also and enter some default data?

              Yes this SQL will reset the birthdays :

              Code:
              UPDATE user SET  birthday='', birthday_search  = '0000-00-00';
