  • Attachments/Avatars not importing from SMF

    Hi,

    I'm importing a forum into vB from SMF 2.0 Beta 4. Everything is successful except the attachments and avatars do not import. I put in the correct full paths and everything but when I run the module it fails to import all the avatars etc..

    Regards,
    Eric

    Think it's supposed to be relative paths, not absolute ones.

      The paths can be full or relative (relative to impex's root (it's index.php)).

      The attachment module will give errors as to what is going on, be that the origional file isn't found or the post is missing etc.

      Set the storage type for database for the avatars before the import.
      I wrote ImpEx.
