Looks more like blank dates were imported. Check the thread/post tables in the database and see if the dates are indeed set to NULL or 00-00-0000.

Only the date in forumdisplay is incorrect. When you open the thread, the dates inside thread are correct..

I checked the "thread" table, and here is what I found:


The dateline and lastposter show 0

You're not supposed to run the modules more than once unless it simply didn't run properly for some odd reason and even then you would stop, address the issue then continue - this might be your issue i.e. running modules multiple times. I would start from scratch and when running Impex ensure you don't run the modules multiple times, finish the import then update counters and such from within vBulletin .

I also deleted the cache and deleted the imported data from /impex/help.php and start reimport but same result..

---
This has been fixed already by Dave. He had to create queries to get the missing data..

Impex didn't import the firstpostid, lastpostid, lastpost, postuserid and lastposter for some reason so I had to manually create some queries to port it over from the post table.
Also in the post table, the visible column was all set to 0 which means only administrators were able to see threads.

^ May be of use to someone else in the future.

I suspect a problem with the source data, that or you re-ran a module without re-running the other subsequent modules.

Can you let me know which version of PHPBB you were importing from?

Hi, What queries did you need to run to add missing data?

I'm running a test convert and have the same problem, Strange such a expensive CMS doesn't maintain converters.





Thanks
