    I have a couple forums I am planning on converting over from IPB. I have IPB blogs and galleries. I was wondering what will happen with the images in the galleries and the blog entries if I convert over from IPB?

    The IPB importer does not do blogs or galleries. Here are the steps from the IPB importer:

    Code:
    	public function getSteps()
    	{
    		return array(
    			'userGroups' => array(
    				'title' => new XenForo_Phrase('import_user_groups')
    			),
    			'userFields' => array(
    				'title' => new XenForo_Phrase('import_custom_user_fields')
    			),
    			'users' => array(
    				'title' => new XenForo_Phrase('import_users'),
    				'depends' => array('userGroups', 'userFields')
    			),
    			'avatars' => array(
    				'title' => new XenForo_Phrase('import_custom_avatars'),
    				'depends' => array('users')
    			),
    			'privateMessages' => array(
    				'title' => new XenForo_Phrase('import_private_messages'),
    				'depends' => array('users')
    			),
    			'profileComments' => array(
    				'title' => new XenForo_Phrase('import_profile_comments'),
    				'depends' => array('users')
    			),
    			'statusUpdates' => array(
    				'title' => new XenForo_Phrase('import_user_status_updates'),
    				'depends' => array('users')
    			),
    			'forums' => array(
    				'title' => new XenForo_Phrase('import_forums'),
    				'depends' => array('userGroups')
    			),
    			'forumPermissions' => array(
    				'title' => new XenForo_Phrase('import_forum_permissions'),
    				'depends' => array('forums')
    			),
    			'moderators' => array(
    				'title' => new XenForo_Phrase('import_moderators'),
    				'depends' => array('forums', 'users')
    			),
    			'threads' => array(
    				'title' => new XenForo_Phrase('import_threads_and_posts'),
    				'depends' => array('forums', 'users')
    			),
    			'polls' => array(
    				'title' => new XenForo_Phrase('import_polls'),
    				'depends' => array('threads')
    			),
    			'attachments' => array(
    				'title' => new XenForo_Phrase('import_attached_files'),
    				'depends' => array('threads')
    			),
    			'reputation' => array(
    				'title' => new XenForo_Phrase('import_positive_reputation'),
    				'depends' => array('threads')
    			),
    		);
    
    		// TODO: user upgrades?
    		// deferred: albums/comments, announcements, custom bb code, calendars/events, social groups, infractions, tags
    	}
