  • Problems importing from Drupal

    I just bought vBulletin and am having issues importing the posts & threads from Drupal 6.

    I am able to to get to step 4 where it imports the forums, but they arent actually imported as forums, instead they are imported as categories (see: http://www.watch-films.com/movie-forum/)

    When I try to import threads and posts it just gives a long list of "forumid" and "threadid" in steps 5 & 6 and in the succesful column the numbers are set to 0.

    Any ideas?

    Note: The only version supported by Impex is this:

    Drupal
    Tier = 2
    Source version support in ImpEx = 4.7.0
    • Import user
    • Import forum
    • Import thread
    • Import post

    Have you tried manually changing those back to forums?

      New system

      I'll have to update the system, start a support ticket and ask for me.
      I wrote ImpEx.

        I'm not sure what Tier 2 means! I've changed them to be treated as forums but it still doesn't import the threads.

        Where do I submit support tickets?

              No response from the support ticket - can anybody else help?

                I'm sorry but the only person that can help you on your ticket is Jerry and he is not available every day. I'm afraid you will need to wait until he can follow-up.

                  Ok - but does anyone else on this forum have any suggestions in the mean time? Time is ticking on my yearly subscription and I'd like to get going ASAP

                    As noted previously Impex does not support the version of Drupal that you are trying to import. Therefore someone is going to need to rewrite Impex with that version in mind.

                      Yikes - that doesn't sound like something that is going to happen quickly. Are there any workarounds to allow me to import the threads manually?

                        No sorry. If I had a workaround I would gladly have shared it.

                          There are no Drupal tickets assigned to me that are outstanding at the moment, have you created one and asked for it to be assigned to me ?
