    And. i am not able to utilize my brains anY more fixing that

      Is this from the IPB to vB2 import script? As we have noted our scripts are designed to work with unhacked databases and yours originally was highly hacked.

      If you think you have removed all the hacks from your IPB database, then fill out a support ticket at:

      http://www.vbulletin.com/members/mem...ontactform.php

      Be sure to include the login info to your Admin CP, phpMyAdmin, FTP and your IPB database info.

      However if the IPB database is still hacked we cannot guarantee that our import script will work.

            Jerry yeah

            and multiple quotes.. if that can be fixed too alongwith this. would be cool.
            i tried using quotefix.php from here -> http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showp...9&postcount=14

            but this prob -> http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showp...5&postcount=27

            so. multiple quotes aint that important.. but if u can help on that its really gonna be cool for me, instead of going and editing posts manually.

            MOST IMPORTANT THING BEING
            tHE PM glitch only

              I wouldn't edit that manually it would take a while, though it is a comon problem with the parser that is used on the vB2 importer, hence the re-write for the vB3 one.

              As for the PM's, its going to be very difficult to sort that now that the import is done. Are you using the new board and do you still have the IPB board ?

              I'll run your IPB site through the IPB -> vB3 import on a dev machine if you like, but I can't give you the importer itself.

                hi jerry,
                tnx for being soo quick highly appreciated
                i have opened a support ticket for my problem, and left details for accessing my server.
                please check it.

                if u need something more let me know about it.
                currently this is a new test i have made. last week
                new invision without any hacks. -> working perfect
                new vb 2.3.x (imported all the info from non-hacked ipb above) .
                this is having probs with multiquotes and the pm..

                i have send my login password too alongwith.
                u can check my send pm folders and edit the password for any other members.. and also check there pm folders

                all of them are having problems.

                If you are able to fix the problem. on ur dev. machine.

                  Probally best that I take a copy, fix it with the vB3 importer then we can plan a migration.

                      Hi Jerry,
                      just doing some research on my own i found a problem in the import script itself. i guess

                      on line 894 select statement
                      WHERE touser.importuserid=member_id (This Statement is Wrong.)

                      WHERE touser.importuserid=recipient_id

                      working again with the scripts let me check if what i guess. is right

                          That will take a reparse of the posts with some decent regex, I'll be working on you board soon.

                              now this makes me a bit unhappy

                              ITs almost like 4 days passed for me.. opening this thread
                              and also opening a support ticket.
                              But havent yet resolved my problem.

                              I have been waiting since 20+ days to upgrade my forums. but cant do that.

                              If The questions are too tough, or cant be supported.
                              due to ....

                              Please confirm to me asap..
                              I will have to buy TECH-SUPPORT from outside to fix them..

                              I need to upgrade from ipb 1.3 to vbb 3.0 - 1 day appx.
                              Install A cms. - 2 days
                              DO some testing - 1 day appx.
                              I have gotta upgrade to OWNED LICENSE. and i only have 9 days left with me.. If my sponsorers are happy. they will buy me a owned license.

                              and 5 days it too less time to make them happy for this.
                              So., if the problems are resolved. as the support ticket says i would be glad

                              Its around 1:00 AM here late nite
                              And i need to take a nap now

                              Please help me, I have submitted all the details to my boards, in the support ticket.
                              if not possible, just leave me a message here that It cant be helped
