  • I'm waiting on the verdict for the slash thing

    I know your script works cause if it worked on my UBB->phpBB->vB then it HAS to work for everyone else

    Besides, 900 users and 28,000 posts takes awhile to convert

    • Since some people are waiting to see what is up with the slash thing, I have no clue what's causing it. I need people to run the most recent version, and test that. Please use that script to generate a vBulletin database, and then tell me if you are affected, and if you are, send me a link to your vBulletin database (using phpMyAdmin), or an actual copy of the converted vBulletin database.

      Also, I am working on a version that fixes some problems (not bugs) in the new html2vBCode routine. If any BBCode is not being converted, I know. Just focus on the slashes please. Thank you.

      This script is almost done. Please don't let me loose all my testers.

        • I think I might have figured out the slash problem.

          If you look in the DB, some ' characters are escaped with one slash while others are escaped with 3.

          I'm gonna remove the extras with a find/replace and try it.....

          • Nope, this one locked up on a post.......did not get to test my slash theory.

            What now?

            • New Release!

              Hello All. Hopefully, this version fixes the problem with the slash thing. Please test it, and let me know how it works out.

              Also, some phpBB BBCode decoding problems have been fixed. It should now decode < img> tags and Edit Messages. Also, I am having trouble with the smilies being turned into their respective symbols, and < font> tags being decoded. I am currently working on it. Please do not tell me those don't work, because I know

              If you have any ideas on how to help out on fixing the smilies code or the font code, please let me know ASAP. My school begins this coming Monday (8-27-2001). After that, I will not be able to work on this very much, and I am working very hard on it. I need all your help. Thanks!

              • I converted about a week ago and apart from some slashes and broken smiley links everything has been running smoothly.

                Thanks Nebula!

                • Good

                  Try running the version released just above your post. That way, the slashes will be removed (hopefully). The smilies are currently being worked on.

                  Tell me how it goes.

                  • Hi Nebula,

                    Thanx to your work, my board is now on vBulletin since one week now, and like jpetrovs, it runs just fine !!!

                    Can you isolate your code for the slash thing problem, because my database is way too huge to do it on all post manually ;-)

                    Many thanx,

                    • 99.99999% PERFECT VERSION (I THINK)!!!!

                      I think this version may be perfect!! Please download it and test it. Smilies work. All BBCode is decoded. If this version isn't perfect, I give up (not really...but you know what I mean ).

                      I'll be away tomorrow, so I won't be around. Let me know what happens!

                      If this version is fine, then this will be the final version! Don't stop testing now, you've come so far

                      • New Version

                        Turned out that this isn't a bug fix, but rather a compatibility issue caused with the [ code ] tags, and the [ quote ] tags. This version also gives you the option of mailing users. If you do not want to, when you get to that step...just enter 0 for the number of cycles.

                        Hope this one is final!!

                        • ...how did it go?

                          Is anyone gonna give me feedback?

                          Remember, this coming Monday (8-27-2001), or 3 days, I return to school. So, that means that unless I have an unusually low amount of homework, I will not be able to work on this at all. Please help me now so I may get it finished.

                          • Neb, it works great. However the mail users function breaks in the SQL.

                            Weird, I pasted the SQL into phpMyAdmin, and it works.....just not in the context of the script.

                              • small bug fix...

                                Here's a teeny weenie bug fix. It fixes a problem with a SQL Query Error. What happened was there was an invalid variable name in the LIMIT clause. It's fixed now, and is ready for testing again

                                Please don't stop testing now. I really need your help.
