Hey guys,

I need some help. I'm trying to merge two of my vB 4.2.2 forums using Impex.

Both forums are 4.2.2.

"Select version and product to export to" is not showing 4.2.2 option.

http://prntscr.com/7gwqfj

Should I proceed with 4.2.1?

Should work fine.

Hey Zachery, thanks for the reply.

This will be my second attempt to do this. The first one failed. I encountered the following issues:

First, before even firing things up. I was seeing the following errors:
Warning: Declaration of vb4_000::get_post_parent_id() should be compatible with that of ImpExDatabaseCore::get_post_parent_id() in ..../vbimpex-master/systems/vb4/000.php on line 143

Warning: Declaration of vb4_000::update_poll_ids() should be compatible with that of ImpExDatabaseCore::update_poll_ids() in ..../vbimpex-master/systems/vb4/000.php on line 143

Warning: Declaration of vb4_009::init() should be compatible with that of ImpExModule::init() in ..../vbimpex-master/systems/vb4/009.php on line 170

I don't know what these mean but I ignored them and moved ahead with the merge.

Then after the merge was completed. I encountered a number of issues.

- I couldn't see the imported forums (categories and all) in the admincp.
- The forum stats were showing "Welcome to our newest member, a" I don't have any username a. This was some kind of an error/bug.
- The forum stats were showing no number or figure in front of 'Members:'

I could see the imported users when I ran manual searches on their usernames in the admincp. The forum stats showed an increase in numbers of threads and posts too.

I also ran the update of counters from general update tools but it didn't help anything. So I assumed something went wrong and didn't know how to fix so I just restored the DB backup that I took before starting the import.

Any ideas what went wrong?

Yes, I did.
But it didn't fix anything.
