Invision Power Board 1.1 Importer needs testing
Mod Version: 1.00, by pogo (Member) pogo is offline
Developer Last Online: Nov 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 2.2.x Rating: (2 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 104
Released: 29 Jan 2003 Last Update: Never Downloads: 1
Supported Is in Beta Stage  

The importer is now available in the Members Area at

http://www.vbulletin.com/members/imports.html
or
http://www.vbulletin-germany.com/members/imports.html


I have heard all the requests for an Invision Power Board 1.1/1.2 import script and now it is done (I hope).
It is possible that it could work with all vB 2.2.x versions but I have tested it only with vB 2.2.9+. I don't know how much bbimport.php changed over the versions and if it will work with older ones.

It imports users, custom avatars, usergroups, buddys, categories, forums, threads, posts, attachments, polls, private messages, private message folders, subscribed forums and subscribed threads.

To make it easy to use it is written as a plugin like all the other official importers.


Requirements: vBulletin and IPB 1.1/1.2 on the same MySQL server. It doesn't matter if they are in the same or in different databases (but different databases need the same MySQL user/pass).

Is it a 1.1 database?

I am sure that the import script is not compatible with IPB 1.0.1 because of all the changes between 1.0.1 and 1.1.

Hmm I would say about 10 hours of work. Don't know exactly.

Good thing was that the import script for WWWThreads has been a nice inspiration.

1 tester replied and had no problems. More to come.

Hey pogo, could I use it? I've e-mailed you, but I haven't gotten a reply back yet

Anyways, I really need this! And yes, it is a 1.1 database.

1) Hard to say where the problem is, in my 2 test boards all users and usergroups were imported correctly.

2) This isn't possible in vB2 because one user can only belong to one usergroup. Perhaps two users have the same name?

3) Yup. I am working on this right now....DONE!

4) This is already done.
