  • Hebrew in latest version of vBulletin + convertor

    Hi,

    one of my forums (phpBB) was hacked recently.
    I consider to move on vBulletin.

    Few questions:

    1. Is there Hebrew language pack for latest version of vBulletin ?
    2. Do i recieve it for free or i need to buy it separately ?
    3. Do you provide convertor phpBB 2 -> vBulletin
    4. Can this convertor handle hebrew characters ?

    This issue is pretty urgent, please reply ASAP.

    Thanks!

    1. The only Hewbrew language pack that is available to download is, http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=195546

    2. As a licensed customer you will be able to download for free the language packs and styles that have been shared by other vBulletin customer from the vBulletin.com forums.

    3. Yes we have import scripts for phpBB:
    http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/main/impex_phpbb1
    http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/main/impex_phpbb2
    http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/main/impex_phpBB3

    4. Impex itself does not do characterset conversions. If the vBulletin database and language setting are set to the same as those you are importing from phpBB then the posts should be migrated correctly.

      Is there an option to install some demo or limited version in order to verify that conversion from phpBB (my worry is encoding issues) goes ok ?

        Sorry the ImpEx script is only available to licensed users and can only be used when integrated with vBulletin so we are unable to offer a trial version.
        Due to the visible source nature of PHP (the programming language vBulletin is written in), sending out trial copies is not a feasible option, as any limitations we put in could be very easily circumvented.

        There is a thread in the community forums where other customers have reported back on their import experience. It may be worthwhile reading through this thread, http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=138594 as it may help you in making your decision to go with vBulletin.

          1. Our DB stores hebrew messages in UTF-8 format - could this be a problem ?

          2. Is there a refund (i may need it in case i fail to migrate info from phpbb) ?

            1) I don't know

            2) There is no refund as I am aware of.

              My customer bought a license for the forum, but I can't figure out a way to link my forum account with his license so that I can download this language pack! I keep getting a You don't have enough permissions error.

              Thanks in advance for helping!

                Tell your friend to go into the members area here:
                http://www.vbulletin.com/members/

                He will need to log in with the customer details.

                Once logged in, your friend will have to go to this page:
                http://members.vbulletin.com/membersupport_priority.php

                Once there he can put your email (the one you registered your account on vb with).
