Re: Proboards/Invisionfree/ActiveBoards converters

Just thought I'd pop back and let you know I did end up getting my conversion completed, with the help you provided, and of course your awesome utility. I did lose 1 days posts for some reason, and even tried closing the IF forum to disable posting for 24 hours, then tried the conversion again. Stil...

Re: Proboards/Invisionfree/ActiveBoards converters

Invisionfree, as far as I know, has changed their quoting HTML slowly over the years. Unfortunately, I don't have post data spanning back far enough. If it were really a huge issue, I'm sure I could write a helper program to automatically update the posts, though it sounds like you have it under co...

Re: Proboards/Invisionfree/ActiveBoards converters

It is in a lot of threads where some sort of anomalie has crept into the "[ quote ]" part of the posts. hitting edit, then submitting seems to fix some, namely those that seem to be missing the "[/quote]" tag, but some display random characters withing the open quote tag like this: "[quote=5a2fgs453...

Re: Proboards/Invisionfree/ActiveBoards converters

You may not need to worry. I have discovered that if I click EDIT on a topic that is all messed up, then select SUBMIT without doing any editing, the code sorts itself out. I'll go through and do that to all threads, and then do the convert to phpBB3. I'm guessing there should be no problems with co...

Re: Proboards/Invisionfree/ActiveBoards converters

OK thanks. Here is a link to the IF board. http://s7.invisionfree.com/Straight_and_Level/ The board is currently off line, and members must be registered to view it. I'll enable the guest account so you can have a look around. Guest log in and password are both "visitor" without the quotes. Will you...

Re: Proboards/Invisionfree/ActiveBoards converters

OK, got it all over, and all seems to be there, except it hasn't brought over anything after midnight last night, so I guess it must be something to do with data updates or something. I've taken my IF board offline so no more posts can be added, and I'll bring the posts over again tomorrow so it sho...

Re: Proboards/Invisionfree/ActiveBoards converters

Umm, no. :oops: So after I import the sql files, I have to go into the admin panel and click the "resync" next to each topic? I did see that last night, and did it to about 4 topics, and then checked if I could view them, but I still couldn't. Maybe once I do it to ALL topics it should show them all...

Re: Proboards/Invisionfree/ActiveBoards converters

After a catastrophic hard drive failure 2 weeks ago, I finally have my system back and up and running again. Back to getting my IF forum converted to phpBB. Last night was my first attempt again since the crash, and I came across a few issues which have me stuck. First failure was due to thinking I ...

Re: Proboards/Invisionfree/ActiveBoards converters

I am a complete idiot when it comes to this stuff, but I've managed to get everything set up no problems, it's the converting bit I'm stuck on. When I import the posts sql into the database, it does it's thing then gives me this error: Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tri...
