This problem should also be corrected, please see the attached file.
This time there was NO error, and the converter shown "successful".
I went to my SMF2 and saw all the members, categories and posts from FireBoard had been transfered to SMF2. That is great!
However, I would like to report a new problem (in fact the same issue happened on SMF1 conversion). In order to describe this issue clear, please forgive my detailed long post below:
1. System info
server: XAMPP v1.7.0 (php 5.2.8, mysql 5.0)
Joomla version: Joomla 1.0.15
Joomla Path: http://localhost/uhiker/
FireBoard version: FireBoard 1.0.5 RC2
Community Builder verson: CB 1.1
FireBoard integrated with CB: Yes
SMF version: SMF 2.0 RC 1.2
SMF Path: http://localhost/uhiker/smf2/
2. In my FireBoard forum, there were many attachments in posts. Almost all of the attachments are pictures. They were stored in this folder:
After conversion, I went to visit those posts with attachments, I saw that there is NO image shown up. In the post, there is an image but shown as red cross which means can't find the image.
I right click on the missing image and see its property, then I noticed that the path of that image is:
In fact, there is NO such a folder named /images inside the SMF2 folder. So the image can't be located. This is why I saw red corss instead of the correct image.
I guess: in original FireBoard forum, the image has a relative URL as:
This path is correct since the FireBoard will read this URL as:
You can see that, this is the correct location where Joomla stored my FireBoard attachments.
Now, when the convert script do the conversion job, it did not modify the IMG tag inside the posts, just copyed as was. So images in the SMF posts also has the same relative path, but now, because SMF2 was installed in a subfolder to Joomla root, now such a path will be wrong.
Though I can copy that /images/fbfiles/images/ folder from Joomla root to SMF2 folder then make all these images appear, I think it is not a good idea.
Because, I noticed that the converter had already copied each attachment from /images/fbfiles/images/ folder to the /attachments folder of SMF2. Why it can't link these copied attachments to posts?
Another problem is: during the conversion, the script told me it had done the re-calculation and statistics job, however, it did not. I have to go to the SMF2 admin, and do the "Recount all forum totals and statistics" job manually to get correct info at the bottom of the SMF2 index page.
Hope you will continue to improve this converter.
Thank you very much!
