Good job! Always good to have more importers, especially for phpBB2.

no problemo. I need it tested though. Can you remove the '(BETA)' part in the thread name though? I can only edit the post subject. And, since it's in the beta forum, it goes without saying

Version 0.6 is out. vBulletin was being picky with reuploading a new file with the same name, so it's now zipped. Here's a changelog:
  • Fixed theme prefixing not working
  • Added option to skip import of SubSilver Theme
  • Added option for admin to choose what style users see on their first visit
  • Table Prefixing now works correctly
  • Gallery Avatars can now be imported

Enjoy

Is there a stable vB to phpBB importer? Maybe I can test this script using that.

Hmm, lemme get this straight:

Your table prefix is: '_phpBB'

okie, I understand that much. It looks like there's a trailing space at the end of the database name, you may want to check that. Or, it could be how vBulletin saved the data

::skimms through code::

ah, found the problem. Expect a new version in a few minutes...sorry about this...

Here's Version 0.6.3. What's changed:
  • Table Prefixing should now work
  • Added version indicator at top of every page
  • Fixed Minor HTML Bugs
  • Optimizations here and there

Lemme know if this version works

BTW...FireFly, there's a bug in the re-uploading thing. You try to select data from the 'attachmentid' table. I think you went to fast while coding that :-P

I just tried this and when it comes to the styles import section I get this error

Database error in vBulletin Control Panel 2.2.5:

Invalid SQL: INSERT INTO style (styleid,replacementsetid,templatesetid,title,userselect,importstyleid) VALUES (null,19,1,'phpBB2 - subSilver
mysql error:

mysql error number: 0

This is on version 2.2.5.

Even if I opt to not import the styles it still gives me this error. Any ideas?
