Thanks for all the hard work on this! We have been at SMF2, from UBB Threads 7.5.7, for 2 months now and everyone is getting used to all the statistics and new smilies and better posting options at last.

It was well worth it, from our point of view, to switch over from UBB Threads: at the very least because SMF2 is so So MUCH Faster!!! 

I plan to stay a Charter Member and be as supportive as I can be in these forums.

I do not think this error was covered...

Thoughts?  Using UBB 7.5.8

I'm curious: when did UBB release the 7.5.7 to 7.5.8 update?

If I remember correctly we gave a database dump for version 7.5.7 ... UBB sometimes makes major changes to database structures with even minor (0.0.x) version updates!

This one fact alone could account for any and all errors from a version 7.5.8 database conversion ....

I did find a fix,  just by going to another browser..
I do get the same error you did, and I did modify it, I would have thought the file would have been updated to reflect the changes you found that you needed..

Here is where I am..

Sorry, I thought I had answered this, the .8 came out a few weeks ago.  Not long

I don't have any more the db, so I can't be sure, though you can try adding:
Code: [Select]
$row['board_order'] = (int) $row['board_order'];
just after the line:
Code: [Select]
$row['description'] = str_replace("\"", """, $row['description']);this won't fix the issue, but at least it should let you continue.
Some boards may be in the wrong order after the conversion.

If I have this issue
>>>>Converting topics...Wrong value type sent to the database. Integer expected. (id_member_updated)

Where would i place a similar fix?

Do you still have the old database? Did you see that happening?

Ask one of the affected users to give you a "wrong" PM ID, check the current SMF database who's the author and destinations and compare that with the old database.
The IDs are all kept, be it users, posts, PMs, etc, so that shouldn't really happen...

What happened was that all users got EVERY SINGLE PM EVER sent, also the deleted by past space restrictions into their inbox.
The person reporting getting others PM, just did'nt remember what he was writing 11 years ago.
All OK

I can't blame him, I don't remember what I wrote half an hour ago... xD


Take a peek at what I'm doing! ;D

Would be OK to know beforehand.
Another "Feature" is that all 5000+ members got their original info in their profile. Remember wich mail address you had 10-12-14 years ago?
...just something to think about

That looks weird.
Honestly I built the converter using as reference a single database. Since I don't like to look into personal informations I didn't check more than the minimum amount of things possible (I didn't go around verifying that old PMs were resurrected, both because I didn't want to go and read peoples' personal discussions and because anyway I couldn't know they were deleted, and the same is true for emails).

TL;DR: I had to "guess" several things.
Some I got right, some I got wrong.
If you can identify how UBB.threads stores the personal informations the converter can be fixed. ;)

I have a ubbclassic forum with 2.9 million posts.
This importer works fine with no errors.

Now I did have to convert to UBBthreads before I could use it.
And even though I tweaked the numbers to speed it up.
7 days for both conversions.
It works fine.

However I have a issue with the inline images posted ,not attachments.
where  due to a modification in classic to control display size.
The links were imported as:
Code: [Select]
<img src="http://i91.photobucket.com/albums/k313/wcocke/5FCC709D-5AC0-4F03-BFB3-548BB780A072_zpsmfv5zkzq.jpg" width="600" height="800" alt=" - " />
instead of say:
[img]http://i91.photobucket.com/albums/k313/wcocke/5FCC709D-5AC0-4F03-BFB3-548BB780A072_zpsmfv5zkzq.jpg" width="600" height="800" alt=" - " [/img]
Which varies in width and height size per post.
So they don't display in the post.

So where do I go from here?
I can change the prefix and suffix tags to
Code: [Select]
[img] [/img] or [html] [/html].
But deleting the height and width tags I have had no success.
But even if I could delete the size tags then goto the cp and change the display size it will not update existing posts.
So the big images will blow out the page and cause scrolling to view.
The other issue is some posts  are stored in the database as say
Code: [Select]
<img src =" and some are stored as <img src=&quot; same goes for the end tagOr any other  combination of  escaped  or normal characters are placed in the database.
Possibly due to experimenting on the mod over they years.
Another item is the alt tag  is used but some are blank and some have values which vary.
And some are embedded as
Code: [Select]
[url] bla ba<img src=;bla blas height width alt />[/url]
Any suggestions on what would be best method to follow to make the images appear again in smf.

BTW, they work fine in ubbthreads after importing from ubb classic.
Any suggestions on what to do.
