    @sammmmy

    Hello,

    i want to import my WBB4 board to bbPress an with a custom importer.
    The “basic” importer is from inspirationally and i wanted to translate it to WBB4
    Now i have a error on line 311 and 312…
    (but i think there will be more 😀 )

    I really hope that someone understands my problem and could help.

    can nobody help me?

    I just contacted devs for you.

    I’m not sure what you pasted above is the same as the original file I worked on with @inspirationally but here is a link to the latest copy I have, maybe try this version and go from there to ensure there are no errors in the version/revision you are using.

    https://gist.github.com/ntwb/41b8bb57df78d1a1bd01

    Next up after that though I’m going to need some MySQL information on what the differences are between the database schema of WBB3 which the above was made for versus WBB4 which your trying to use it on? Do you have a DB schema for WBB4 or link to one via their site?


    sammmmy

    @sammmmy

    the code that i posted above, was the “corrected” version of the wbb3 Code.

    I do not know how i can post you the Database schema, is there a good way to do this?

    For any code you can create anonymous (i.e. You do not require a GitHub account) and paste your code here https://gist.github.com it makes the code much easier to read than posting here on bbPress.org.

    The 4 tables would be wbb1_board, wbb1_thread, wbb1_post and wcf1_user

    Open up phpMyAdmin on your install, navigate to the database, click one of the 4 tables I listed above, then click structure, take a screen shot of similar to this example here.

    ok, thank you.

    @robkk

    @sammmmy

    in the original code you will see

    'from_tablename' => 'wbb1_1_post',

    you listed it as being just wbb1_post so edit that to the correct table name.

    let us know if that fixes your import issues.

    @sammmmy

    Thanks for your help.
    I think that was correct, because in wbb3 it was wbb1_1_post

    …and in WBB4 it is wbb1_post

    or am i wrong?


    Robkk

    @robkk

    well for the wbb1_post it looks right.

    @sammmmy

    could it be the there is a problem with the user import?

    in wbb4 there is no salt

    https://gist.github.com/anonymous/bb7ddafb17dc41aa8e00

    in wbb4 there is no salt…

    Yes, if that salt field is not in the user table then delete that block of code from your custom script.

    @sammmmy

    i thought so and used this code:

    https://gist.github.com/anonymous/526a8d9913e872ad5a43

    the import was starting but not more…
    I am still helpless


    Robkk

    @robkk

    any errors or did the import just seem not to finish?

    how many posts are you trying to import??


    sammmmy
    Participant

    @sammmmy

    2000user…. 5000threads… 150000posts… If this could be important.

    I used 1 line/sec
    The field says starting and does nothing more

    What happens if you logout and log in again, also fully refreshing the import page would do the same thing, if you’ve left the import page open for too long without doing anything then the MySQL connection is dropped from the database and is most often the cause of only seeing Starting without any other error.

    @sammmmy

    After refreshing and logging out/in (tested both)
    the side is showing the original “import side” with empty fields

    @sammmmy

    are you trying to import one giant file, or did you split it up into manageable chunks??


    sammmmy

    @sammmmy

    I dont know how to answer that.
    I want to import a mysql database, i dont know if that is a file or whatever.

    On my server is an old wbb3 installation and i can import that very good.
    My wbb4 import is not running, i think the problem is the importer code….


    Robkk

    @robkk

    Could be the importer code.

    Is there anything else you can spot that is different between WBB3 and WBB4?

    @sammmmy

    i found a difference between wbb3 and wbb4.
    In the wbb1_1_board from wbb3 is the parentID “0”
    but in wbb1_board from wbb4 is the parentID “NULL” (german for zero).
    There are a lot of these fields….

    i try to change that and search for other differences

    @robkk

    Yeah that makes sense since the original file was for a user with a german/english forum I think.

    You may not need this either since the original user had a german forum.

    /**
    	 * Set languages, add more languages if needed
    	 *
    	 * @param int $language WBB v4.x numeric forum status
    	 * @return string WordPress safe
    	 */
    	public function callback_topic_language( $language = 4 ) {
    		switch ( $language ) {
    			case 4 :
    				$language = 'German';
    				break;
    
    			case 5  :
    			default :
    				$language = 'English';
    				break;
    		}
    		return $language;
    	}

    sammmmy

    @sammmmy

    Yes that is an other problem, every languageID field is empty.
    how can i solve that?

    At first i have to solve the “NULL” problem.

    How can i change the importer that the empty fields with “NULL” will be imported?
    I think i need something like “if empty then…”

    Yes that is an other problem, every languageID field is empty.
    how can i solve that?

    You shouldn’t need to do anything, if there is no value it will default to English

    In the wbb1_1_board from wbb3 is the parentID “0”
    but in wbb1_board from wbb4 is the parentID “NULL” (german for zero).
    There are a lot of these fields….

    Indeed Null is German for zero, also NULL is a special value in SQL databases.

    Typically I’d expect a reply to always have a parentID, that ID should be the topic ID.

    A topics parent ID will typically be the forum ID the topic belongs to.

    bbPress will treat replies without a parentID as an “orphaned” reply because there is no association between the topic and reply id’s.

    bbPress will treat topics without a parentID as a topic not associated with a specific forum, so unlike replies, bbPress does not require topics to have to have a forum id.

    Forums without a parentID are treated as “top level” forums, forums with a parentID of another forum are treated as “child” or “sub” forums of the parent forum.

    So some parentID values may be an integer 1, 13, 653 etc, sometimes it will be 0 meaning there is no parentID and other times it will be NULL, it is all dependant upon that forum softwares configuration and the context it’s being used in.
