Trouble editing posts - Thinks it's a new topic!

Hi, After converting my board over from IPB everything is fine apart from a quirky problem with the old urls people have posted in their threads. They are incorect and don't display as a link i.e they start <a href=> etc When I attempt to edit the posts as admin I can preview the newly edited post o...

Re: Moderator Preview indefinitely??

Thanks for the reply - Just to clarify will the above method allow me to view any posts they attempt to post?

Cheers

Moderator Preview indefinitely??

Hi, Sorry if it's obvious and I've missed the option but on my previous IPB board there was an option if you edited a user to 'Moderator Preview indefinitely' on all of a users posts. That way you could have a look at what a new user was attempting to post before actually allowing it to be posted. I...

Re: Escaped from IF @ last! Help required getting to PhpBB3 :(

Well it all seems to be there on phpbb3 now as well :) 2 errors did appear early on but they flashed past quickly and I did'nt have a chance to read them properly. So I take it that the phpbb3 database is now the original phpbb2 database not a new one thats been created somewhere. I've exported it a...

Re: Escaped from IF @ last! Help required getting to PhpBB3 :(

Edit : ignore me, all sorted

What is the situation with search, I see there is something in one of the folders of the converter package - when I use the search option in the forum I get no results - will it only be new posts that will be 'searchable'?

Cheers again

Re: Escaped from IF @ last! Help required getting to PhpBB3 :(

I can see the 'query' option in phpmyadmin but can't grasp where to put the line you've posted.

I put it into the box 'SQL query on database' and submit query but get the error at the top 'You have to choose at least one column to display'

My apologies :roll:

Re: Escaped from IF @ last! Help required getting to PhpBB3 :(

The converter I downloaded ready to use is ib2phpBB_1_3b btw, is that the correct one to use once I sort this stats e...

Re: Escaped from IF @ last! Help required getting to PhpBB3 :(

You'll have to excuse all my noobness concerning this whole process btw :) I was under the impression I need to import the ipb tables and the old forum datadump into the phpbb database via phpmyadmin before letting the converter loose on it all. I get the error message a little while into importing ...
