    np Jake
    I can understand that.
    I have one last option left now.
    directly, modifying the database in IPB 1.3 and then running the import script for vbulletin.
    Wish me good luck
    Or else i kill all my posts and start again
    As the members are imported perfect. :>

    If i Face some other probs. apart from the hacks which are cozing a havok for me.
    i will let u know.

    You people are nice to reply my TROUBLE posts

    Thnx. and Regards,

    Sandy...

If you placed the tmp directory in the right place, the path to the Safe Mode Temp Directory will be:

    Jake i am trying to uninstall the hacks
    Please tell me how do i fix the attachments problems ??
    coz, that is not a hack

    Attachments are getting displayed properly on IPB 1.3 but after importing to vbulletin those are not appearing.
    I have started uninstalling the hacks

    Thnx.

    You should try uninstalling your IB hacks and importing again.

    Hi Jake.
    1.
    Yeah the problem is only with imported information.
    Adding Exclamations to the new board doesnot cause any problems.

    2.
    I think the attachments did not get imported at all.
    Can you tell me how do i confirm that ??
    There are few attachements on my live forums in .zip files even those do not get listed on this imported forums.
    Are the imported attachments stored in the database in vbb ? or in a directory somewhere ?
    If you tell me this. i can copy the entire ipb uploads folder to a specific directory for VBB forums simple way.

    Image Resize mod 2.7 is the only one which is causing main problems with IMG TAGS.
    here is the link for that mod for IPB -> http://forums.ibplanet.com/index.php?showtopic=2073

    I have disabled that mod in my IPB. but still it is cozing problems.
    Do u want me try import once again ? removing this mod completely from my forum ?
    Pleazse also let me know then things i take care of before doing another import.

    Regards,
    Sandy...

    1) exclamation points being replaced with the HTML equivalent.

    This problem appears to be only with imported information, correct? Exclamation points that I post are working fine.

    2) attachments not showing up

    Same as with the exclamation points, this problem appears to be only with imported posts. Maybe the attachments didn't get imported. I am able to attach files to new posts without any problems.

    You had tons of IB hacks installed before the import. It is not unlikely that some of those hacks were the cause of your import problems. I will ask our importer guy about this, but with the number of hacks that you had installed I can't promise a solution. Our importer is designed to work with unhacked IB forums.

    Those signatures have HTML code in them. If you don't allow HTML in signatures then the HTML will not parse. You can enable HTML in signatures in your:

    Admin CP -> Options -> vBulletin Options -> [Posting Code allowances (vB code / HTML / etc)] -> Allow HTML in signatures?

    Avatars are included on the page using HTML img tags. Flash files need HTML embed tags to work. Changing this behavior would require modifying the vBulletin code. For help with modifying the code you will need to post on www.vbulletin.org , the official vB hacking site.

    As for the fopen() errors, I do not know what is causing that. I will look into this for you.

    PS: I see your ticket about these problems in our support system. I am just replying to this thread instead of replying to both.

    Since this is for vB2, you can use the current import script here:

    http://www.vbulletin.com/members/imports.html

    Just follow the instructions on that page.
