Fixed Import vb 5.5.5 attachments Problem


New member
Hi, we have imported our vb 5.5.5 Forum into Xenforo 2.2.3.

After Import some of the Images = Attachments are missing in the posts.
They were imported and shown in the attachment section after the post but not in the post itself where they should be.


vb5 Code:

[ATTACH=JSON]{"alt":"Klicke auf die Grafik f\u00fcr eine vergr\u00f6\u00dferte Ansicht  Name: Heide211.jpg Ansichten: 476 Gr\u00f6\u00dfe: 198,8 KB ID: 1216169","data-align":"none","data-attachmentid":"1216169","data-size":"large"}[/ATTACH][ATTACH=JSON]{"alt":"Klicke auf die Grafik f\u00fcr eine vergr\u00f6\u00dferte Ansicht  Name: Heide188.jpg Ansichten: 478 Gr\u00f6\u00dfe: 268,7 KB ID: 1216171","data-align":"none","data-attachmentid":"1216171","data-size":"large"}[/ATTACH][ATTACH=JSON]{"alt":"Klicke auf die Grafik f\u00fcr eine vergr\u00f6\u00dferte Ansicht  Name: Heide260.jpg Ansichten: 478 Gr\u00f6\u00dfe: 217,5 KB ID: 1216170","data-align":"none","data-attachmentid":"1216170","data-size":"large"}[/ATTACH]

Xenforo Code:

[ATTACH type="full" width="60%"]1216169._xfImport[/ATTACH][ATTACH type="full" width="60%"]1216170._xfImport[/ATTACH]
The image with ID 1216171 is no longer in the post, but the image is attached to post - so it is imported but the ATTACH Tag ist missing ?!

Did anyone have an idea how we can fix this?

Regards Pascal

Thank you for reporting this issue, it has now been resolved. We are aiming to include any changes that have been made in a future XFI release (1.4.1).

Change log:
When rewriting embedded attachments for vBulletin 5 ensure the replacements made aren't too "greedy".
There may be a delay before changes are rolled out to the XenForo Community.
