Fixed IPB 3.1 Import Fails on Status Updates & Polls


Active member

I've been testing the IPB 3.1 importer on a dev install of XF. I'm getting ready for the final port so I'm trying to do a few test ones to ensure it's all working properly.

Thus far it works great, however, it errors out on Status Updates and Polls.

When attempting to import Status Updates:

For Polls, I chose Import the FIRST question found, it begins to go, shows itself at 77% but then I get hit with this error:

I'm not sure what any of this means. Status updates I take it will just import as regular profile comments? Anyway, any help or insight is appreciated. Can't wait to get off IPB and onto XF but I have to ensure this isn't going to mess up come port time. Thanks.

Ignore that. The fix is to find this in library/XenForo/Importer/IPBoard.php:
return array($profileUserId, $userId, $username, $false);
and replace with this:
return array($profileUserId, $userId, $username, false);

Thanks Kier, I'll try that with another fresh install / port test as soon as I have time and update this accordingly.
