      well, figured i'd give it another whirl.

      I started with 2 of my main forums from Ib. The first went through without a hitch...converted over 2000 posts
      Then there was the second forum. called the page from my browser..hum hum hum everything was going fine, them Boom! got another error
      This one however was not nearly as severe. all (or at lease most) of the posts converted into the proper forum & there was no merging of the threads. at a glance everything looks fine, but the error was still there. I imagine it simply haulted the process & didn't convert all the posts. Here's the error i received

      Code:
      Creating Topic: 9 Title: Schematics 
      
      Creating Post: 1127 
      
      Thread number in Database: 1127

      Creating Post: 1128 
      
      Thread number in Database: 1128 
      
      Thread filename: 10.thd 
      
      Warning: file(".thd") - No such file or directory in /home/justsomesite/htdocs/postconv/forum2/conv.php on line 120
      
      
      Done Processing!
      I'm a little timid to procede until i know there was no damage.

      Thanks again LoB! i'm so close i can taste it

        that just means it got to the end of the threads.. if i wasn't lazy i'd create an error handler to exit the script when the filename was "" , nothing to worry about, just means all the threads for that particular forum were converted...

                  cool, once i understand the whacky way they coded VB i should be able to do some more of the advanced stuff, god it's so cryptic trying to understand other peoples code

                  oh check out the multi race rank hack further down (or up?) the page, my personal hack

                    Worked just fine for me as well. Got the error at the end but everything came over correctly. Thanks for this script, I've been waiting for a few months now.
