    Oh no problem, it's just a slight change from what we had in place and I know it will take a little time to get used to

      Well there you go.

      I guess waiting up until nearly 1.00 am so i could get all the work done tonight was a waste of time then

      LOL

        Sorry Justin, I too was under the impression that the scripts would be in the member area when VB2.0 went gold,
        they said :

        "We will be putting together an import script for UBB 6, after vBulletin 2.0 is declared stable and released (ie: not beta code)." ...

        Well, it's not beta code anymore ... and we know they are done...

        Good news 2.0 went gold but the import script is required for current UBB customers to switch, that is certainly going to put a damper on new sales.... Dunno why they did it this way, the import script was included with the 1.x versions... Must just be a new anti piracy thing, like the ctrl pnl thingy... (LOL) I don't blame you for passing on allowing them access to your control panel, no one but you or your chosen admins should have that...

          If the Import script is in the Members area only members with valid license codes will be able to download it anyway, I don't see the reasoning behind this email waiting period.

          Life would be much easier if I had the source code...

            They may be worried about someone that has a valid license sharing it... It does happen, but I didn't think that this software would be a werez trophy...

            I own a license (though my wife seems to have taken control of it...) and I showed Justin "Devices" this software, showed him the forums support is 1st rate, he bought a license and now they're makin me look bad...

            On top of that, his UBB is broken now... post's showing 24hrs later or not at all... go figure

              Hi Glitch

              Hmm i did notice a few errors with the site but was hoping to shift over very soon.

              Did you notice i went for a clean install all ready to import the site over Upgrade9.php seemd to screw it up a lot.

              Then i checked for the import and oh dear. You must email request it

              By the time i realised that it was late over here in the UK and from what i can gather John is over my side of the pond so he is probably tucked up in bed right now.

              One of the support guys mentioned they need to verify the licence etc in another post. That does not make sense since you have to be a licenced to get to the members area anyways.

              Yes Philip very true. Maybe they are customising each script sent to users for tracking any pirated versions that may apear on the net. Thats the only reason i can think of which i guess could be a good idea for them but very frustrating for us.

              Oh well just past 5 am here in the UK so i best get some sleep and check my mail when i awake.
              Regards

              Justin

                Strange, mine (err or my wifes ) went quite smooth, no problems other than all the racket concerning no spell check hack anymore, oh well, guess she will want me to install that too... Funny, they only want you to play with it, if it's broken...

                It's modbot that is broken beyond other cgi based problems with delayed/missing posts and thread post counting isn't doing very good either...

                  I'm one of those waiting for the script to be delivered to my e-mail as well. I've been waiting all day! It's 1:30AM now and nothing I got all excited and couldn't even do anything today.

                  Oh well hopefully it will be there in the morning.

                      Once I have the script bbimport_ubb6.php, what do I do with it? I put it in my admin directory and it doesn't show up in the list of import systems....

                          All the import scripts need to be uploaded to your importers folder, not the admin folder.

                            That's what I figured yesterday when I emailed John, it's morning here on the east coast still no script. I guess I will have to wait until this evening to run it.

                                Still nothing here as well

                                It's like when you buy a new car, but you have to write the manufacturer and request them to ship you the tires
