Re: How to use the textreparser after manual conversion to 3.2?

That sounds really promising - will try it as soon as I find the time!

Re: How to use the textreparser after manual conversion to 3.2?

Thanks, but the converters for 3.2 as well as 3.0 fail on my old database. Probably because of the modifications I made to my phpbb 2, but the exact reason can never be known because the converter does not seem to log anything or provide any error messages (why...?). I installed a fresh 3.0.14 just ...

Re: CLI reparser doesn't parse all BBcodes

This thread seems relevant to my current problem where the 3.2 reparser does not fix the quotes and images in my manually migrated database (I changed from a very old and heavily modified phpbb 2 to 3.2 and the converter could not upgrade my database). Can someone please tell me how exactly post_tex...

Re: How to use the textreparser after manual conversion to 3.2?

When I quote one of those posts and preview it unaltered, it looks like it should. Isn't the software at this point doing the same thing that the reparser should be doing? :?:

Re: How to use the textreparser after manual conversion to 3.2?

You can reparse the bbcodes with the cli command php bin/phpbbcli.php --safe-mode reparser:reparse post_text --ansi I think you saved me there! With the converter failing on my database, I tried running this command from the shell and it actually started fixing my manually imported old posts. Smili...

Re: How to use the textreparser after manual conversion to 3.2?

The actual message is "Dieses Board ist leider momentan nicht verf├╝gbar." because the board language is german. And it's an error message. When I try to login and provide a wrong password, it actually tells me that my password was incorrect. Only when providing the right password, when the board the...

Re: How to use the textreparser after manual conversion to 3.2?

Did that, that's not it. The error message is also different if it's about that, and the ACP would still be accessible.

No, the board is just throwing some error obviously when trying to use the database.

Re: How to use the textreparser after manual conversion to 3.2?

Well... I ran the conversion on a new board. It seemed to complete without issues. The new database was populated and looks like it should at first glance. But when I open the new forum in the browser, it just says "This Board is not available". It's not possible to log in, register or anything else.

Re: How to use the textreparser after manual conversion to 3.2?

That looks like what I have been asking for, thanks. On the other hand, if phpbb 3 can really just convert my old database, it will probably be the cleanest solution and might be worth losing a few days of new posts, so I'm going to try that now and set up a new forum. If that does not work, I will ...

Re: How to use the textreparser after manual conversion to 3.2?

Ok... But how can it be that no manual importing of any kind is possible, and who would design such a thing? That does not make any sense. In the end it is nothing but text in a database. There must be a way to bring it into the correct form. Any hint on how the phpbb 3.2 software even manages to no...

Re: How to use the textreparser after manual conversion to 3.2?

Yes, but like I said, the structure is different because I modified it. Has lots of new columns and some new tables. I may also have modified existing ones, not sure. I did all this in 2004-2005. Do you think it might work in spite of that? I was sure that the conversion will fail if the structure i...

Re: How to use the textreparser after manual conversion to 3.2?

I guess the files in the original install folder would somehow use this reparser, because the new format was just introduced in 3.2. But when I re-upload the install folder, it does not let me do anything, just tells me to delete the install folder.

How to use the textreparser after manual conversion to 3.2?

TLDR; I need help using the textreparse to update old forum posts to the 3.2 format. I was running a very old phpbb 2 forum that was started in 2003 and has about 300k posts. I modded that phpbb 2 installation so heavily that any automatic upgrades became impossible. I changed dozens of files and a...

Language selection for anonymous users?

I'm developing a site that primarily targets german users, but also international users. If all unregistered users see the board in English, my main audience will be alienated. If the default language is German however, most international users will not be able to understand anything. I need an opti...

Re: For new project: Use phpbb 2.x oder 3.x?

Thanks. And this board is already Olympus? Because I've had some errors... eg I couldn't preview my post ("form was invalid").

Also I couldn't log in with my old username ("password could not be converted"). I had a new password sent to me but it still didn't work so I had to register again :|
