    Thanks! That would be ideal. :)

    XF 2.2 Do banned users receive conversation emails?

    I have a question for which I have not been able to find an answer, here or elsewhere. If a user was part of a conversation and was then subsequently banned by way of the admin panel, will that person still get emails reflecting subsequent activity in the conversation? Thanks so much for any help!

    XF 2.2 Robots on forum with login required

    Well, I found my own problem. One category inexplicably had View set to Yes for Unregistered/Unconfirmed. :)

    XF 2.2 Robots on forum with login required

    My community site requires a login to view the XenForo content. Despite that, some robots do show up as viewing various subforums. I have all permissions for Unregistered/Unconfirmed set to NO. I don't know how this is possible but, clearly, it must be. Is this an error on my part? Thanks...

    XF 2.2 partial import from UBBThreads export

    Just to close this out: the conversion went well and the merged forum is live and everyone seems to love the result. I'm pleased. As I noted above, the clean design of XenForo's database and structure, along with that of UBB Threads, was what made this process straightforward, easy and...

    We're running v 1.08. If we update to the latest version, will it work correctly with the existing data? Thanks!

    XF 2.2 partial import from UBBThreads export

    Test conversion is done. It looks good. Cutover to production will probably happen next week sometime. It happened over a few weeks because of the holidays and just being busy on other things but it turned out to be a fun and easy project. Better, from my point of view, is that it taught me...

    XF 2.2 partial import from UBBThreads export

    Got the avatars loaded after dinner tonight. Pretty easy and they look good. I'll encourage folks to upload new copies of their avatar and that will fix all of the size issues but they look pretty darned good right now and seem to work well in all of the contexts that I can think of. I'm...

    XF 2.2 partial import from UBBThreads export

    Or do what I did do: take a very few minutes to convert the other image files into JPGs so the file extension accurately describes the data within.

    XF 2.2 partial import from UBBThreads export

    Perhaps we are looking at this differently because of different backgrounds. When I looked at this, I could see almost immediately what steps were needed. It was clear at the beginning that a table-to-table conversion would be pretty straightforward. I expected some hiccups and got some but...

    XF 2.2 partial import from UBBThreads export

    You're right: I'm importing everything from scratch. Why? Because: There is no formal importer from UBB Threads to XF I'm not importing the entire UBB Forum but instead only parts of it I'm not importing the data into an empty XF forum but instead into a forum that has lots of data There is an...

    XF 2.2 partial import from UBBThreads export

    As an aside, I've confirmed that XF avatars must be JPG files. Or, at the very least, other formats don't seem to work. XF must be converting them on upload, which is interesting.

    XF 2.2 partial import from UBBThreads export

    I created the required folders and copied a couple of avatar files to them. I then updated the avatar dates for those users and left the avatar dimensions at zero. When I tested it, the avatars showed up correctly. The only hitch in this is that the avatar files I'm uploading are quite a bit...

    XF 2.2 partial import from UBBThreads export

    Well, I learned something new just now: XF stores avatars in folders that appear to hold 1000 files max. An avatar file called 804.jpg will be stored in the '0' folder. A file called 1234.jpg will be stored in the '1' folder and a file called 11234.jpg will be stored in the '11' folder...

    XF 2.2 partial import from UBBThreads export

    What I get is a blank avatar. LOL When I then upload the same avatar file for the same user, I get a working avatar but the file does not appear in any of those folders. XF must be storing the data someplace else but it's not obvious at all to me where that might be. Another mystery...
