  • Subscribed threads did not pass through import process?

    All of my users from the source board lost their threads subscriptions, is there anyway to rebuild those back into their accounts or is that data lost because of the change in the threads ids? (i'm hoping there is a trick out there using the import ids?)

    Thanks!

    If you did not delete the import threadids, then it may be possible to write a custom script to re-associated the old subscriptions to the new ids. You can try asking for help with this over at the vB mode site: www.vbulletin.org

      I could write one possibly, do you know if subscribed thread ids are even carried over from the old databse in order to associate them? I'm guessing they are lost tho so even with the import threadids it wouldn't be possible?

      thanks

        Sorry, maybe I'm confused. Did you do an import instead of a normal upgrade? If so, then I'm afraid all your old postids, userids, and threadids were changed and the old subscription information is not imported. This is one of the many reasons we do not officially support or recommend using Impex instaed of upgrading normally.

          Ah I see, yea this was a merger of two sites using impex, ok I see so those subscribed threads are gone. Oh well.

          Thanks for the help anyway
