  • Attachments in IPB to vB3.0.1

    Will there be a converter available that will import attachments from IPB? Many of my members have uploaded their own avatars as well as pictures of their minivans and I do not want them to lose these images from their posts.

    I am SERIOUSLY considering a move to vBulletin for this site (just 1 of 15 forums I operate), but the attachments is a issue that may cause me to stay with, and buy a lifetime IPB licence instread.

    Thank-you in advance

    As far as i know, the latest vB3 Importer script DOES import attachments from IPB 1.3, but you would have to double-check with vBulletin support to make sure it does.

      The IPB importer status does say 'nearly all thread information' which presumably includes attachments:

      Nonetheless I'll look around and see if I can find a better answer.

      Update: I was wrong. It doesn't look like it does attachments yet:

        Thanks Steve. I had seen that post as well and hence the reason I am asking this question.

        And as I actually have a total of 12 IPB boards (not all will transition) this is a important factor

          I'm sure Jerry will add that capability shortly.
