Converting From IPB With All The Bells And Whistles?

#1
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')
			),
		);
