MyBB Import
« on January 30th, 2014, 11:42 AM »
Not sure if this is the right place to post this but i get a deprecated command message when I try to import from MyBB 1.6.



I have tried adding php variables that ignore deprecation warnings but still same thing.

Redownload the importer from github. It was updated yesterday. Next time read at least the previous page though

Like Lorenzo said. Update your files.
Generally speaking, if you ever have any bug in anything related to Wedge, make sure you have the latest version of everything installed. I can't possibly ask everyone of you whether you're up to date...

Also, would like for you to keep me posted on whether MyBB 1.6 is properly imported...

(And as a reminder: Wedge is in alpha; please do not use it in production until it gets stable.)

Sorry guys,

Thought  was up to date but clearly I am on something. :P

Worked ok, although not sure if how you are going with the importer but it does wipe any post / user that w's created before the import (on the wedge side).

And don't worry, been waiting patiently for 3 years for wedge, and have seen all of the "Its only alpha" posts. My forum is only a small personal forum with a few friends to co-ordinate with my Minecraft server (although feel free to sign up ;) ) :P

Oh, I forgot to mention the single poll I had (whether to migrate fully to Wedge, lol) failed for some reason.

Only the options (sorry I closed the error before I screencapped)

Edit 1: I might run up a test site and replicate.

I redid the tests, these are the errors I got:





Fixed the first one by deleting the poll choices, other one not sure what's wrong but I think it times out after that.

Also, the boards all import but sub boards are just dumped in the main section and you can't see them in the list of "boards" available to move them.

Edit1: I also noticed that users don't get added to the "post count" positions.

As far as I can see there are two things that went wrong:
1. id_attach is autoincrement. So there are duplicate entries for different attachments?
2. Column count doesn't match means that there are 5 columns in wedge table, but e.g. your last line refers only two columns.

Probably, data wasn't important.

Pandos, I'm asking for the result of that query... not for the query itself... I'm not a SQL champ but I can still write those without help... I hope :lol:

Bun', I'm thinking this might be a problem with the mybb import script because the SMF version is working fine for everyone Herr...

At worst, you could always convert to SMF 2 and then use the converted again for Wedge...?

Nah it's all good, I managed to get it working by removing the offending data (and then readding it manually), but it might be an idea to note it down for future revisions so larger sites don't have as many issues.

Mine is a small site that has like 10 users :P

@Bun, well the good thing about this importer is that it's relatively forgiving with DB errors, but still, that's something to fix...
Yeah its just some feedback so some myBB extraordinaire can fix one day.

I removed the offending data and the board imported ok.

Just reported my experience.

Ooooooh. There's a MyBB importer? Now I'm even more interested in getting Wedge to work.

I still don't get why you didn't vote when the original 5.2 vs 5.3 poll took place... :^^;:

And you know, you've had access to the importer for a long time, and it already had the MyBB script in it..? ;)

(And yes, I still haven't been to your website to check out what's wrong and try to fix it... Sorry! A bit overwhelmed, these days...)
