What error are you getting?

These are converters that we haven't updated to the downloads page. With how many updates and tweaks we perform it would be to hard to keep updating the downloads page :|

I converted vb 3.7 on my small site.
Everything seems fine except for the avatar.

Well done!!

let me know if you are going to fix the avatar thing.

I got the avatar to go.

here is the diff:

< elseif (!copy($vb_settings['avatarpath'] . '/avatar' . $row['userid'] . '_' . $row['avatarrevision'] . '.gif', $attachmentUploadDir . '/' . $newfilename))
---
> elseif (!copy($vb_settings['avatarpath'] . '/avatar' . $row['ID_MEMBER'] . '_' . $row['avatarrevision'] . '.gif', $attachmentUploadDir . '/' . $newfilename))

Ahh, looks like a bug :D

I fixed it in our SVN repo (haven't committed it yet though).
Thanks for catching that :)

so i converted from VB 3.7 to SMF 1.1.5.  I noticed a couple things happened.  I'm running TinyPortal and some things seemed to have gotten crosslinked.  For example... i had created an announcement on the main page which was linked to another user account after the conversion.  Also things seemed to get crosslinked in the garage module (which i understand is probably out of your control) but it looks like it took the few garage entries we had done and stuck other names on there....i seem to have most issues sorted out now.... just wondering if you know why these things happened?

Most likely because we have not created a vB 3.7 converter yet.
So you are taking a risk to convert with the 3.6 converter.

Is there any update on when the following may be fixed in the converter

Known Issues
- Permissions for boards are not converted.
- Membergorups are not converted.

We have a site on VB and this is the only thing stopping us from changing over, we have way to many users  to have to go through and re-create the groups and re-assign them.

Thanks

This is no known ETA when they will be fixed..

If you want, you can open a request on the converters request page and ask for an update to include those :)
When time permits and it is next in the list of acknowledged I can try to get to it.

Did you enter the right path to the vBulletin directory? That is saying it can't find the database to use and it is trying to use no database.

Ok got it working by reuploading the converter files. Now during the conversation error comes:

Converting...
Converting personal messages (step 2)... Unsuccessful!
This query:

    SELECT
    pm.pmid AS ID_PM, pm.touserid AS ID_MEMBER, pm.readtime != 0 AS is_read,
    '-1' AS labels
    FROM `truforum_vb`.pm AS pm
    WHERE pm.folderid != '-1'
    LIMIT 0, 500;

Caused the error:

    Unknown column 'pm.touserid' in 'field list'

Are you sure you have the right version of vb?

The error MySQL gave was: SELECT command denied to user 'nikolasr_pforum'@'localhost' for table '_pizzavbuser'

I have smf on other databse and vbulletin on another database what to do now?
