I'm planning to convert my yabbse forum to smf.
SMF installation was easy but I had no success converting the yabbse forum.
I keep receiving error messages for duplicated entries when importing messages.
This is the kinda message I receive when running the converter:
Converting posts (this may take some time)... Unsuccessful!
INSERT INTO `medfly_smforum`.smf_messages
........(here is a long string of messages before the end message)....................
Caused the error:
Duplicate entry '16986' for key 1
If I try to convert again everything I receive the same message but the error is always caused by a different entry number.
After the converting process is stopped by the error the new forum seems to have a lot of things converted but not everything. Browsing the forum I find some problems that disappear running the maintenance functions.
What can I do to avoid such converting errors?
