IPB to SMF disaster!!
« on: April 07, 2005, 06:44:38 PM »
Well, after converting a few small IPB forums to SMF I figured I had figured out most of the problems. I decided to finally convert my main board with a little over 200 members to SMF and it's a disaster. All the permissions are screwed up, uploaded avatars are gone, attachments are gone, moderators are gone except for me and it goes on and on. According to the convertor, everything went fine and all avatars and attachments were converted. One thing I did find already is that the uploaded avatars are in the attachments folder but all files in that folder now have a number in front of them as part of the file name and a bunch of junk on the end such as: 13_boat1_jpgc60bd504b634cc78521eafd8f5f1a6f8 I believe this should be simply boat1.jpg I guess if I want to spend several days sorting it all out, all would finally be ok. Is this normal for a conversion or am I just lucky?
I converted from IPB v1.2  to SMF 1.03 and I used a clean installation of SMF.
