So lets say I've just used the convert.php and ipb22_to_smf.sql files to convert IPB 2.1.7... Have I just done a bad thing? That was a silly mistake on my part. Should I wipe it and start over? I swear I thought we were using IPB 2.2xx... If it's a bad thing, is there a way where I don't have to wipe the db and start from scratch?

You should be able to convert w/o having to erase everything.

Hi Juan- Okay I started over from scratch and installed and configured SMF 1.1.2. Next I copied * convert.php (63.03 KB - downloaded 123 times.) « Last Edit: January 28, 2007, 04:34:18 PM by JayBachatero » and  * invision21_to_smf.sql (33.89 KB - downloaded 7 times.) « Last Edit: February 12, 2007, 02:13:07 AM by JayBachatero » and ran the conversion. I'm converting from IPB 2.1.7...
Here are the results:
Avatars: do not show up except for the ones that were linked to url's.
Signatures: The code in the signatures did not convert and is visible. (ex-
[size=]"Smart People Play Smart .....Stupid people suck! Don't play stupid". Me[/size]
Images: Images in the posts seem to have converted properly (I checked a few).
Links: Email links in the posts seem to have converted properly.
Hyperlinks in the posts did not convert at all. There is just a single space wherever a link was.
Hyperlinks within signatures did not convert at all. Same as post hyperlinks.
Permissions: Basically, none of the permissions came across properly but I think that may be more to do with the way they may have been set up on IPB; possibly in a non-IPB standard manner.

Quick update:
I decided to check the code for one of the signatures in IPB and it looks like this:
[size=3][font=Comic Sans Ms]"Smart People Play Smart .....Stupid people suck! Don't play stupid". Me[/font][/size]
Then I looked at the same signature in SMF after the conversion and it looks like this:
[size=][font=Comic Sans Ms]"Smart People Play Smart .....Stupid people suck! Don't play stupid". Me[/font][/size]

I checked a few more and it looks like all numbers were dropped. Hope this gives some clues.
Thanks!

Oh- which version of the convert.php do you want me to use with this?
RJ Scott

JayBachatero

Okay- LOTS better! I think we're down to just a couple of things.
First the good stuff:
All links are now showing and working now.
Stuff that still needs to be fixed:
The numbers are still being stripped out of the [size=] and [attachmentid=796] shows up when a picture is uploaded. The good news is that the attachment is there.
Avatars are still not showing up
And I'll slide one in that I haven't mentioned yet- The PM count imports but you can't see the actual PM's.
Almost there! Thanks.

Damn it.  I'll look at the size issue.  Is this with the sig or post?  About the attachmentid thats for the inline images.  SMF doesn't support that.  I guess I can make the converter remove that.  I'll look into the avatar problem as well.  Umm gotta look into the PM's as well >_<.

Ok this should fix the size issue and PM's.  Let me know.  The PM fix was made by Sarke a few days ago for the 2.0 converter.

Hey okay- the messages are working now. Great! However the size thing still isn't.

PS- and <span> type tags are showing too.

Can you please get me an example of the post with the error?  But get the post form the database cause IPB changed the [tag] to html tags.

I meant taken straight from the database.  Not by editing a post.  The original post from IPB's tables.
