If you have a converter from bbPress to SMF, that should be possible (even though two migrations increase the risk of failure).

Never forget your backups, of course. wink

Yes I do. I will try this and I'll be back with an answer later smile


edit: it worked

Re: FluxBB Migration Tool

Hello !

I just finished to reread my Gimp course (in French) and now I can continue to work on the converter.

I installed Auto Poll and just began to test it.  I changed the line numbers in the readme.txt to make them fit with 1.4, and fixed the affected file list (edit.php was missing).  And now, I'm currently making a language file in order to make the admin part of the mod localizable.  Once the job finished, I'll send you the modified files.

Re: FluxBB Migration Tool

Hello !

I just finished updating the Auto Poll Mod !  Here are the changes :
- Localized the admin part of the poll mod (new language file : admin_plugin_polls.php)
- Changed the … HTML entities into their UTF-8 characters
- Made a French translation of the mod.
- Fixed a missing file in the affected files list in readme.txt
- Updated the mod infos (mod version number, FluxBB version number) and added myself as contributor.

Download link : http://dl.dropbox.com/u/25752921/auto_poll_v1.1.0.zip

It seems to work fine on my local FluxBB 1.4 installation.  So, I'm ready to work on the poll conversion script.

Re: FluxBB Migration Tool

Hello, it's me again !

I just finished coding polls.php, but I have a bug that makes polls not being converted.  I just cannot figure out where it comes from as all my variables seem correctly typed.

Here is the updated package : http://dl.dropbox.com/u/25752921/Connec … olls01.zip

To test it, use my updated Auto-Poll Mod package in my previous post above.

Thanks in advance.

Ishimaru

Re: FluxBB Migration Tool

Just a bump, to remind daris that I still need his help.

You can reply as soon as you can, but I cannot reply until Monday : 3-days weekend in my trailer.

Re: FluxBB Migration Tool

Damn hidden characters…

By the way, regarding this part :

if ($start == 0 && $db->table_exists('polls'))

	next_step();

I didn't touch this code, it was like this in the phpbb2 polls converter, so if it's considered as an error, it should be fixed in phpbb2 (and other) converter as well.


Anyway, it now converts my polls and everything seems fine.  I'll clean up the files to remove the commented codes, then write a readme.txt in both languages (FR and EN) regarding this converter.  I'll also prepare the updated mod package when I'll can (I'm still under treatment for my right eye).

You are wrong. Test out the voting of existing polls in fluxbb, you will see that you are able to vote again in fluxbb if you already voted using CB. I haven't looked too much in your poll converter code but I think that is because CB doesn't save in database users that vote for each option.

Re: FluxBB Migration Tool

You're right, I didn't test it further, as I just came back from my trailer when I replied, and I was already tired and I had to take my eyedrop that widens my pupil + my eye ointment (I'm still under treatment), and those medicines blur my vision for several hours.

Now I just checked on my test CB forum and actually, users cannot change vote (I thought they could), only the poll itself can be modified.  So we have three choices :
- change mod
- to not convert polls
- reset poll results

Re: FluxBB Migration Tool

After having taken a look to the two other mods, I keep Auto Poll, but I consider a reset for all polls.
What do you think of it ?

(you can take your time, I go back to my 5th wheel trailer tonight and I come back home Sunday evening.)

Re: FluxBB Migration Tool

I'm back from my trailer, so if you agree about the poll reset, I'll do the change

Do what you want wink

Next time you shouldn't ask me for permission as you are a CB converter author smile

Re: FluxBB Migration Tool

OK, then I'll do the final modification (poll reset), then I'll prepare the readme file in both languages (French and English).

Re: FluxBB Migration Tool

Finished !
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/25752921/Connec … -final.zip

Once you uploaded the files, could you tell me it's done please, so I can tell the users that are waiting after the converter to migrate their CB forum ?

Re: FluxBB Migration Tool

Tool is not converting for me.  Nothing.  Zip.  Zilch.  Started with a clean install of Flux - converting from PHPBB3.

During the conversion, i can see it clearly accesses the database, users names pop up, topics, etc - after it is all done - nothing is in my Flux DB.  No users (so I can't choose an admin). Nothing.

Re: FluxBB Migration Tool

^^ Nevermind.  For some reason did not work with innodb - despite my server being compatible and Flux install running fine with innodb enabled during install.

Strange.

3 days left before my 2-weeks vacation.  I would like to have time to PM the three CB users before I leave…

Re: FluxBB Migration Tool

I am using this to migrate from MyBB, but it only migrates users. There are no forums or posts visible. (I do see it going through all of them though.)

Re: FluxBB Migration Tool

I will try to convert from MyBB (which version are you using?) when I move files from SVN repository to GitHub service.

edit: I tested clean install of MyBB 1.6.4 and it works for me.

Re: FluxBB Migration Tool

Both the latest versions of MyBB and SMF are having the same problem. No categories/forums show up. However, users show up (with the correct post count).

Can you send me SQL dump by email? Have you installed any mods/extensions for MyBB?

Where would I find the SQL dump?
And I uninstalled all the mods before trying to convert.
