  • PHPBB 2 BBCode import problem

    After importing a PHPBB 2 forum to VB4, many posts have BBCode that is not being parsed. I looked into it, and it seems that it's all [img] tags.

    I believe the problem lies in that PHPBB2 allowed a [url] code to go inside an [img] code, such as:

    [img=left:e74645cbda][ URL][ /URL][/img]

    (Space in URL code to show the text only, not in original issue)

    vB obviously doesn't like this, and only parses the URL. How can I remove the extra stuff in the IMG tag, and switch them around so this parses correctly across my forums?

    Okay, after looking more into this issue, it seems that the URL tags are added in the edit box, and not part of the original posts (and thus not part of the problem).

    So now all I need is some way to get rid of those stupid =left:e74645cbda stuff in the tags.
