Thanks SleePy.

Any idea on how long it should take to convert 13,000 posts and 300 users?

Actually, I past the Post import and then I hit this error:



Good news is all of my posts appear to be there, bad news is I'm not sure if this error is significant or not.

Let me know SleePy - and THANKS!!!! You're the man.

Update...

As far as I can tell, almost everything made it over properly EXCEPT for the PM's.

Here is a screen shot of what my Inbox looks like:



Any ideas?

Seems like the order of things for PMs have changed so things are getting added to the wrong place.

Send me one of the .msg files so that I can look into it.

Yea I was thinking the same thing.  I'm pretty sure other things changed as well.  Just haven't come across them.

Hey guys, I've attached a .msg file. Let me know if you need anything else. Hopefully I am not breaking the rules by posting this, and if so, just let me know and I will get it to you gents another way.

Thanks!

There are like 3 time stamps for each entry.  I'm going to have to download YaBB and take a look at the source files.  I got most of the stuff in the right order just need to find out what did they add in 2.2.  I'll have to do that when I get home from work though.

Jay - I added the Yabb 2.2 msg file in my previous post as a comparison.

Yea I analized the file before posting.  I got the subject, body and sender figured out but need to check how much their PM system changed.

Thanks Jay - let me know if I could assist in any way. Also, I need to get this moved over for one of my sites soon, so if you would like for me to pay for your services, I am willing to do that as well.

Try this one out

note it is a yabb 2.2 converter. I was working on trying to get yabb installed so I can see what else changed, but it doesn't see to like me :(

Hey SleePy - will this take care of my PM issues?

This one may work.
I still haven't been able to get yabb installed. But I have a friend who is going to try and get it going so I can work on updating it (hopefully).

I only can guess the changes based of information Jay gave me on how the pm message format is now.

If you need me to install a fresh version for you let me know, I have a few available empty sites that I can give you full access to.

I will test this version now.

OOps,

Thats what happens when you copy and paste ;D

Find:
Code: [Select]
            while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result))
                convert_query("
                    DELETE {$to_prefix}log_topics
                    SET ID_TOPIC = $row[ID_TOPIC]");

Replace:
Code: [Select]
            while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result))
            {
                convert_query("
                    DELETE {$to_prefix}log_topics
                    WHERE ID_TOPIC = $row[ID_TOPIC]");

btw, I did just get yabb installed :D
Now to just get things tested. I tried pms and the changes I made worked for pms and they appear to convert right now.
