[MyBB 1.8] Importer

The attached version can hopefully import a MyBB 1.8 forum to ElkArte 1.0 ..

It's based on a totally outdated version of Openimporter. the newer ones (especially the ones for MyBB seem to be completely broken). Just upload the three files to your ElkArte directory and call import.php from your favourite web browser..

And the subcategories in a main category, comes out as new main category.

Ex: Mobiles (cat) > Android (sub cat) (in MyBB)
Mobiles (cat)
Android (cat)

Probably missing attachment files? Is it a real MyBB forum or just a database backup you're trying to import? Maybe the attachment files aren't part of your backup?

It is a real MyBB backup database, my current forum DB (www.indiantalkzone.com). Downloaded using phpMyAdmin in the control panel and tried.

Ah, then you only downloaded the database. The attachments and avatars are not part of the database, they are files under the MyBB folder /uploads and you'd need to copy this folder to localhost in order to import attachments & avatars..

I deleted attachments in MyBB db and tried again..but it didn't work. I am doing something wrong?

Re: [MyBB 1.8] Importer

can you check the path G:\wamp\www/attachments/4_f81a866f99d98822837317eab6b92129cbea37e9.elk with windows explorer?
Does this folder folder  G:\wamp\www/attachments/ exist?
