Hello i got everything imported and everything went fine. But now I am trying to use:

Post Content Find / Replace tool

http://xenforo.com/community/resources/post-content-find-replace.1549/

Now i want to convert my:

<blockquote class="ipsBlockquote"


I found this thread with the same problem.

http://xenforo.com/community/threads/ipb-3-4-4-to-xf.48573/page-2

And I found this thread for the solution:

http://xenforo.com/community/threads/find-replace-help.45290/#post-486353

I do have the tool installed correctly (I have even re-installed it 3 times now). Everything time I copy/paste the codes above. No matter if I put a check mark box in save or not, nothing happens. I have read though all the post but still can't figure out how to get them to work. Is there a change since it's 3.4.5? Or is there something wrong with the tool? I just need to convert my quotes and videos them I am done. Anyone have any ideas?

You linked to my post with that replacement. If it isn't working then I need you to provide an example of the complete blockquote code in one of your forum posts.

This is one example:

<blockquote class="ipsBlockquote" data-author="ndboarder" data-cid="45862" data-time="1371044750">

Preordered:

Xbox One Day One edition

Xbox One games:
  • Ryse: Son of Rome
  • Kinect Sports Rivals: Day One Edition
  • Dead Rising 3: Day One Edition
  • Quantum Break
  • Forza Motorsports 5: Day One Edition

I held off on CoD: Ghosts and Destiny for now, figure I'll have to wait and see what limited or collectors of this become available.

This video one is just a standard Youtube link.

This is the one I tried to use for the video:

Code:
Quick Find: <a href
Regular Expression: #<a href="http://www\.youtube\.com/watch\?v=([^"]+)">.+</a>#siU
Replacement String: [media=youtube]\1[/media]

And this is the one I tried for the quotes:

Code:
Quick Find: <blockquote
Regular Expression: #<blockquote class="ipsBlockquote" data-author="([^"]+)".+>([^<]+)</blockquote>#siU
Replacement String: [quote=\1]\2[/quote]

It looks correct to me. Send me a PM with a URL and admin login, and a link to one of the posts. I will take a look.

Your blockquotes have one extra space in them. Try this:

Quick Find: <blockquote

Regular Expression: #<blockquote +class="ipsBlockquote" +data-author="([^"]+)".+>([^<]+)</blockquote>#siU

Replacement String: [quote=\1]\2[/quote]
