Import XFR to XFMG question

    Just so we don't mess anything up.
    XFR is populated with albums, images, etc
    XFMG is empty

    On fresh import from XFR to XFMG:
    • Should we 'Retain imported content IDs' ?
    • Should we Archive the import log table to the same acrhived_import_log that we've used for imports from vB to XF a couple years ago?
    We do not want to clear out any of our vB thread and post redirects.

    That's a decision you have to make. There are URL redirects built in and they will work with or without this option checked.

    It won't let you do that, you'll have to pick a different name.

    Cool, so there is no danger overwriting anything that would be responsible for redirecting our current vB to XF setup?

    So archived_import_log2 would be sufficient

    Yep, that would be fine. Even if you tried to use the same import log, it won't allow you to.

    Thanks so much Chris.
    Curious, what are the consequences of retaining IDs or not?

    If you have an album in XFR User Albums with an album ID of 1, when it is imported to XenForo Media Gallery that album will keep the same ID.

    Usually it's more relevant if you need to do any sort of automatic redirection, so it probably isn't relevant for you. Whether you do it or not, there won't be any consequences. Purely personal preference.
