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).

Got this script work ( sorta ). Had to change my admin user to a different usergroup and then it went through. There are 2 "Administrator" groups now, and only one is valid. There is a ID 6 and an ID 9. I assume ID 6 is the original vB Administrator Group ID. This is the one that isn't valid.

I don't see that this script takes care of the userbase correctly. A lot of my Invision registered users are marked as unregistered in vB, and most of the unregistered users in Invision are now members in vB.

All my posts came over correctly though. So that is cool. But I can't have a database that is this messed up. I don't think vB3 will be very nice when it comes time to upgrade and the database isn't in the format it expects/wants.

Haven't even gotten to the point where I can check permissions, because all the users are screwed up. So I have no info about that at this point.

Am I doing something wrong? I know Pogo says he's done it a bunch of times, and others say they have as well. Are you guys having these same issues?

I am using Invision 1.1.2 which has the same database structure as 1.1 ( only different is security issues in the code ) and vBulletin 2.2.9.

Thanks

I did a test run of the importer on my DB last night and it went very smoothly. I think I saw a couple of registered users get dumped into the COPPA member group during import but that's something I could easily fix manually.

Is there anyway you could also send me a copy? My address is david@crowfield99.co.uk and will test it out too.

Many thanks,

I suppose a couple of preliminary questions before I get the script...maybe someone can help answer these.

My Invision board is located at www.loudrant.com/forum

Do I have to install the vB board at a different url such as www.loudrant.com/forums ?

Because I do need to install vB first, correct? And if they are at the same address that would present a problem, yes?


Thanks for any help...just trying to become familiar with all of this.

How you migrate is entirely up to you. You're probably best off moving your forums to a new folder and forwarding users to your new ones. Otherwise you'd loose any search engine placement and bookmarks for your current board.

The importer is about as solid an importer as I've come across, it had no problem with my board (1200 members | 100,000 posts) so yours should be no prob.

I suppose you mean this :
Testing is on hold while I do some bugfixing and I won't send the script out until further notice! Thanks to all who helped me a lot so far.
Ya, I was just trying to find out if the author was keeping up with this so I was curious when the last time it was sent out...thanks though.

It's definitely reassuring to hear that such a large board was successfully converted.

So what your suggesting is that I move my current forum to a different folder and install vB in the folder previously used for Invisionboard? You're right...I don't want to lose my bookmarks...

Please bare with me...thanks!

Also, could you check your PM?

Read the first post, the script is on hold. It will not be sent out until some bugs are fixed and features are added.

Got it to work fine. Converted IPB 1.1.2 -> vB2.3.0. My database was a little screwed up from an earlier conversino to IPB. But after that was cleaned up, the conversion went perfect.

Thanks Pogo!
