Importing from SMF to bbpress

    @runamuck

    I am importing from SMF to bbpress and this is the error message that I’m receiving:

    WordPress database error: [Unknown character set: ‘utf8mb4’]
    SELECT convert(messages.id_msg USING “utf8mb4”) AS id_msg,convert(topics.id_board USING “utf8mb4”) AS id_board,convert(messages.id_topic USING “utf8mb4”) AS id_topic,convert(messages.poster_ip USING “utf8mb4”) AS poster_ip,convert(messages.id_member USING “utf8mb4”) AS id_member,convert(messages.subject USING “utf8mb4”) AS subject,convert(messages.body USING “utf8mb4”) AS body,convert(messages.poster_time USING “utf8mb4”) AS poster_time FROM messages AS messages LEFT JOIN topics AS topics USING (id_topic) WHERE topics.id_first_msg != messages.id_msg LIMIT 0, 25

    I’ve upgraded from PHP 5.3 to 5.4, but still running into the same problem.

    Anyone else run into this problem? And how did you fix it? TIA.

    @deserthighway, did you try with bbPress 2.6rc3 ? Importers have improved a lot!

    Hi,
    can the import function also import the attachments from SMF ?
    Does it place it into the Media-Library or where ?
    Do I need to have installed the GD bbPress Attachments
    plugin, before I do the import from SMF ?
    I just tried without it and it seems it did not import
    any attachments…
    Or are the attachments at least somehow linked into the WordPress Database ?

    Many thanks.
    Regards, Stefan.
