XF 1.4 Converting from IP.Board 3.4

#1
Hi,

I'm doing a test conversion from IP.Board. Everything worked fine, but for some reason post images did not get grabbed.

I checked both SQL entires for IPB and XF for the same post, and it looks like it's skipping the images?

Anyway to get XF importer to grab the img tags? Lots of my threads just look empty now.

I've never seen a case that used single quotes in the HTML. Do you have any other examples that didn't parse?

I mostly meant things other than the <img> case as I think the change should cover that. (It will be in the next 1.4 release.)

Well in the HTML it's double, but in the IP.Board database, it's single quotes (I don't know why).

The <img> tags are really the only thing that I'm concerned with. So the converter in 1.4 RC1 does not handle <img> yet, and 1.4 stable will?

Correct. (Specifically, whatever 1.4 release comes next has the extra regex for that img tag format.)

Note that this would require a re-import.

That sounds good.

If I do a re-import on the data that already exists there, will it just replace the data? Cause that would be helpful. Or do I need to start with a blank forum.

So let's say there's 200 users, and 1,000 (no image) posts. If I do a re-import of the old IPB database when there are 210 users, and 1,200 (200 new posts being created natively in XF), will it just replace the original 1,000 of those?
