This is my first post, so bare with me... :D

I am running Yabb 2.2(which is not a clean install but upgraded from prior versions as I have been using yabb for years), I also have SMF 1.1.8 installed, running a mysql 4.1 database. If anyone can help I'd really appreciate it, I don't know anything about mysql or PHP, yes im pretty technically literate but after many hours I can't get it to pass without an errorI tried yabb22_to_smf_.php and of course I also tried yabb21_to_smf.php and yabb2_to_smf.php to compare errors, and they are all different errors naturally.

After I run the yabb22_to_smf.php convertor and I get the following:

dataangel, have you tried the yabb22_to_smf.php attached to this topic (first post)?

dataangel

I didn't say directly that I tried it, but yes that was the one I used and then I tried the others. Edited my main post.  ;)

SleePy

How many posts do you have on your yabb forum?
Can you attach or send me your forum.master file from your yabb board files? My email is listed on the team page if you prefer to email it :)

I have something like 2000 posts? However each thread is its own file... when I run the convertor all the posts are there, however the topic convertor fails so theres NO threads for the posts to be assigned.

Do any boards convert?

Far as I can tell I think the boards conversion may be failing. But I don't see why

Edit,
We could try this
Find in the yabb2_to_smf.sql


list ($tempCatID, $tempID, , $description, $mods, , , , , $doCountPosts, , , $is_recycle) = explode('|', rtrim($line));
// !!! is_recycle -> set recycle board?


Add before:

if (substr($line, 0, 3) == 'qq~')
$line = substr($line, 3);

I think I see it now.
Make a backup of your forum.control.

Open it. The very last line should have something similar to "general_cat|news||All"

Change general_cat to 1. I think this is the issue here as that is an invalid cat id. The converter can't find it so index errors are occurring and the conversion isn't completing.

Did the members get converted?

Those line errors are way off from what I have, so this is making debugging harder to track down. I don't think it is anything you are doing, most likely just issues with line endings from different operating systems.

No it did not convert the members.  :(

SleePy

Would you be able to just send me all your yabb database? I can try the converter locally then. I don't know why it isn't working. I have a feeling it may be due to the changes yabb is doing in order to work with mysql and other databases.

Thanks for fixing it! Guess I just had an issue with my forum data, Doh! I don't know how that happened...

I'll be very grateful for your help...

Are you still having trouble with this? I'm guessing you tried the fixes mentioned so far by SleePy though.

I have something to say: it's better to burn out than to fade away. There can be only one.

I jsut want to know if this is a problem??? I just when to my SMF board and it all seems to be there and working?? i'm just doing some tests but can someone let me know what this might mean??

Thanks

Korin

You can safely ignore this error.  It is a bug in our main convert.php file.  This doesn't affect your conversion.

Hi All,

I have just converted from yaBB 2.3 to SMF 1.1.12, went very smoothly but I have had a few errors. All of my posts and users seem to be there, but I haven't done a thorough testing, other than logging in with my admin account (which was transferred also).

Can anyone shed any light on the following errors please?? They seem fairly unimportant by description, but are they likely to impact things down the line? Should I try and resolve these (or go and change settings in SMF to reflect) before I make the SMF the live forum (the old yaBB forum is currently shut down in maintenance mode,and was for the conversion).

Thanks for any advice...

Congratulations, the conversion has completed successfully. If you have or had any problems with this converter, or need help using SMF, please feel free to look to us for support.
Please check this box to delete the converter right now for security reasons. (doesn't work on all servers.)

Now that everything is converted over, your SMF installation should have all the posts, boards, and members from the YaBB 2.2 installation.

We hope you had a smooth transition!


BTW: very happy so far, next step is looking at a portal or CMS integration :)


EDIT: The yabb22_to_smf.php used was the once currently attached to this thread, and convert.php from here: http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=140741.0

Hello... Can anyone suggest what these errors might relate too please? Is it max avatar size or something?
