XF 2.0 vBulletin 4 with Blog importer - known issue

The current (2.0.1) version of the vBulletin 4 with vBulletin Blog importer will import Blog attachments from blogs created prior to installation of vBulletin 4, but will not yet import attachments that were created after the vBulletin 4 update. This will be resolved in the next release.

If you have a vBulletin 4 installation without the vBulletin Blog add-on, or if you are not interested in importing blog attachments, this issue will not affect you.

The vBulletin 3, vBulletin 3 with Blogs and vBulletin 5 importers currently have no known issues.

We are looking forward to the new version of the importer, for the transfer of vBulletin 4 (we are many) with blogs and attachments. How long will it take to wait for this update, at least an approximate time frame. Thank you in advance for your response!

@hIBEES did you ever get an answer to that question?

I'm seeing the same error when trying to import an old vB 3.8 database into a new XF2 installation

Hi Sim,

No... what I did was install xf1, use the built in importer then upgraded to xf2... took around 2-3 hours with manually watching and accepting each part but that worked for me bud.

Cheers
