      Because they are two different bulletin board systems written by two different companies. They do things differently. When you install Linux over a Windows system, nothing is copied over either.

          If the avatars didnt import properly then you didnt specify the correct path for them. It's as simple as that.

          As for passwords, it is impossible at present for vBulletin to import SMF's passwords.

            iettafune,

            It would appear that you are giving yourself lots of excuses not to switch to vbulletin. Why don't you ask your users if they mind that they will have to change their passwords?

            After all you are providing the forum for them, let them decide if it's going to be such a big deal or not.

              I've converted SMF to vB before and I never had a problem.

              Yeah, password thing is annoying but people can just change their passwords and voila you have a forum that is a thousand times better.

                  Only thing I can think of with Avatars is that you specified the wrong path. Having done 2 SMF upgrades, I never had any problems with the avatars transferring over.

                      That's what I am talking about.

                      I never had any issues transferring personal avatars over from SMF to vBulletin, so you must have used the wrong path, that's the only issue I can possibly think of. I know you are having some rough issues right now, but believe me you will enjoy using vBulletin a whole lot more!

                        The correct path for user avatars IS the same path as for the attachments. Since to SMF, user avatars ARE attachments. That path is usuall /path/to/forum/root/attachments

                            All I can think of then is either file permissions, or there is somthing odd with your setup.
