I just purchased xenForo, i run IPB 3.4.4 but when i try to convert it there are options only for IPB 3.1 and 3.2...which one should i select?

I used IPBoard 3.2 and worked fine!

The only issue i can see now is that, the members count is just 1, though everyone is able to login using their normal username and password at ipb

EDIT: Fixed :)

Posting back,

i just noticed an issue here:



as you can see the posts haven't been converted...correctly, any ideas how to mass fix that?

Was there anything different or non standard about your IPB installation?
HTML allowed in posts for example?

anything that has to do with the posts seems broken :(
Did you try the mod linked above?

You can also try to run a query at the db.

Code:
UPDATE xf_post
SET message = REPLACE(message, 'html_stuff_here', '');
Where html_stuff_here stands for the html tags that appear in posts. That ought to remove them.

A new post parser was added in 3.4 so any converter will add the html to all converted posts. Only basic bbcode gets convert correctly.

That explains it then and why the 3.1/3.2 importers don't work.

Thanks for clearing that up.

And hence why I stated: "If the schemas are similar then you can try 3.2." :)

Hey, okay.
Did you have so much problems with äöü converting into the XF ?
I have much problems there, and in some posts the HTML brackets (<p> </p>) are viewable, if i open a thread.


Thanks for answering ;)

There you can see pictures how my forum looks like after the import :(
Those images aren't viewable.
