In reply to: Inline images…any time soon ???
So, apparently, there hasn’t been any progress on this? Are there any plans at all to allow users to include images in topics and replies?
Thanks for the reply, Stephen, and thanks for your work on this.
I guess that when all is said and done, however, this converter just isn’t going to work for me. Perhaps if there were fewer topics and replies, the converter would able to finish, but I’ve started and re-started it several times now, and it’s crapped out every time.
I’m going to get a quote from GConverter.
Instead of using “reset forums,” can I just empty some of the MySQL tables?
This is really driving me crazy.
I purged the data using the “reset forums” function, then restarted the conversion. This time, it converted the users, all of the topics, and about 220,00 replies, then started just outputting dashes again. What does it mean when it starts outputting dashes? What is the program doing?
I clicked “stop” and then “start” again, but it just kept outputting dashes.
I opened a new window and re-started the conversion from that window, but instead of picking up where it left off, it started converting topics again. Am I going to have two copies of each topic in the BBPress forums now? Should I reset the forums again?
Well, I’m still waiting for this thing to finish. It’s been nearly 36 hours since I started it. I looked at the forums, and from the home page, none of the forums show any topics, but when you actually enter one of the forums, you see that they actually do have items in them. I think that I’m going to stop this now until I hear back from you.
The conversion is still running and outputting dashes. Is it really still working, or might it be in some kind of weird loop, or am I just being impatient?
OK. So, I turned off the ability to go to sleep and fired it up again, and as you said, it started up from where it left off. This morning, almost 24 hours after I began this conversion, it looks like it has completed converting all the replies (nearly 500,000).
Now, the the conversion program is outputting a series of dashes. I’m not sure what that’s all about. It might be a good thing to output some kind of message, like you do when converting topics and replies.
Well, the converter seemed to crap out after creating 2000 users, nearly 77000 topics, and 35000 or so replies. Is it possible that it stopped because my Mac went to sleep?
I’m not sure exactly, but I’d guess there are more than 100,000 posts, but less than 500,000.
What kind of WP user does it create?
