Fixed vB->XF Import: When migrating from vB 3.8 to XF, buddies aren't not properly processing vB buddylist

    Version: XF 1.1.4

    When migrating from vB 3.8 to XF, buddies aren't properly imported. In library/XenForo/Importer/vBulletin.php, around lines 1243:

    if ($user['buddylist'])
    $buddyIds array_slice(explode(' '$user['buddylist']), 01000);
    $buddyIds $this->_importModel->getImportContentMap('user'$buddyIds);
    Here the getImportContentMap() method is called to map userids contained in $buddyIds from old to new. The problem: the content map, or xf_import_log respectively, doesn't contain all userids yet; it is being filled as new users are processed.

    For example, someone with user ID 1 will always have his $buddyIds array erased, and as a consequence will follow nobody, because his user account is the first to be migrated, and xf_import_log doesn't contain any userid maps yet. In other words, whenever there is someone in the buddylist who has not been migrated yet (usually someone with a higher userid), that userid will be removed from the current $buddyIds array.

    Related question: I have the "Retain imported content IDs" option selected. Why is the importer still going through the various ContentMaps, which add additional queries for each migrated content item? In cases where 1 will always => 1 (like with user ids), wouldn't it be beneficial if the importer skipped ContentMaps here?

    the imported buddy list vb4 > xf 1.1.2 was also mostly incomplete for most of my members

    Nice find. Will be good to have this fixed when I do my vb3.8 bigboard import.

    Fixed, and it also handles the ignore list as well now :)

    Does it import edit history from vB 3.8 too?

    That's on our list of things to do, but I can't tell you precisely when just yet.
