Fixed Unknown column 'pfd.pf_phpbb_website' in 'field list'

Affected version

After an import from my phpBB 3.2 forum with the new importer I got the following server error log in the admin control panel:

  • XF\Db\Exception: MySQL statement prepare error [1054]: Unknown column 'pfd.pf_phpbb_website' in 'field list'

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 (1.3.1).

Change log:
Prevent an error when importing from phpBB if one of the expected profile fields has been deleted.
There may be a delay before changes are rolled out to the XenForo Community.

I've attached a version of the phpBB importer with the fix so that anyone with this issue can workaround it. The attached file replaces the existing src/addons/XFI/Import/Importer/PhpBb.php file.
