  • Joomla & Fireboard migration too Vbulletin 3.8.5

    Hi,

    I am trying to migrate my fireboard to Vbulletin 3.8.5 version.
    Although this is for the VB4 version, i haven't seen a VB3 version in the forums, the reason why i open my topic here.

    I can migrate my users to VBulletin 3. I can also migrate my topics and posts, but I cannot see them on my new Vbulletin Forum..
    What am I doing wrong?

    Please help... thankyou


    ** Update:
    I can now see the posts, but the VBulletin forum does not show them on front, also the postcounts are left 0.
    Please help...

    Nevermind It worked !

    Forgot to use Update maintance

      Because there are two users table in Joomla! DB and you have to remove jos_ prefix from the second one. Check out my new guide on this:

        Great job putting this guide together.
        I did not have to change the name of the users table, but I had to manually change the Impex scripts to replace the fb_ prefix on the tables for kunena_ .

        For example, on 000.php:

        ORIGINAL:
        var $_valid_tables = array (
        'fb_announcement', 'fb_attachments', 'fb_categories', 'fb_favorites', 'fb_groups', 'fb_messages', 'fb_messages_text', 'fb_moderation',
        'fb_ranks', 'fb_sessions', 'fb_smileys', 'fb_subscriptions', 'fb_users', 'fb_whoisonline'
        );



        CHANGED TO:
        var $_valid_tables = array (
        'kunena_announcement', 'kunena_attachments', 'kunena_categories', 'kunena_favorites', 'kunena_groups', 'kunena_messages', 'kunena_messages_text', 'kunena_moderation',
        'kunena_ranks', 'kunena_sessions', 'kunena_smileys', 'kunena_subscriptions', 'kunena_users', 'kunena_whoisonline'
        );


        There were other places in the files, of course.

        What I am stuck with is the migration of the CMS content from Joomla to vB CMS. I keep getting 0 articles on Impex (using the Joomla CMS modules) although I have 180+ in Joomla. Thoughts?
