vB4 Migration

Hmmm ... I just tried the CLI importer (after following all the steps) and I get an error after Step 1 with the following message:-

Unknown column 'match_regex'

Understand that the VB4 importer is marked Beta at the moment, but would like to understand what is causing the issue, and how to fix.

Now that you're licensed, could you create a new thread? This one could be a bug so if you could create it with the relevant details in the XenForo bug reports [2.x] forum that'd be ideal.

In terms of albums it should be possible to import them into our Gallery add-on, but it's not compatible with vB5.
Hello Chris,

Is this a standard feature of the official XF importer? So, when we want to migrate a VB3.8 board (with User Albums) to XF2.0, will our User Albums be transported to the Media Gallery?

It’s part of the XFMG add on itself so a separate import. Unfortunately XFMG 2.x doesn’t yet have any importers so my recommendation would be to import into XF 1.5 and MG 1.1 first and then upgrade to 2.0.
