Boards imported as categories? No threads or posts
« on: October 13, 2013, 08:12:29 AM »
I have tried two times and both have failed. I need help to understand what is going on.

I started by installing SMF 2.0.5. Everything OK and after install was completed I uploaded both files (smf_2-0_vbulletin37_converter) needed to convert from Vbulletin Version 3.8.4.

I didn't do any changes at SMF. I run convert.php and didn't got any error message and it said it was successful.

After that I've logged in as admin and went to Admin > Forum Maintenance > Recount all forum totals and statistics

I have same number of members and each member has same number of posts.

But I don't see boards, threads or posts.

When I go to Admin > Forum > Boards I have there all vB boards as categories (?!?). But they don't appear on site because those categories don't have any board created for them. And so I don't have any thread or post visible.

If I go to MySQL everything was imported right. I see threads and posts and they are the same number as they were on vB.

What can be the problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I cannot tell what happened in your conversion, sorry. Can I have a look at your database? Because there's no way that:

Categories, boards, topics and posts all have different tables in the database... If the boards are in its place, they cannot show to you as categories in admin...
