What prevents the person you are messaging with in a private conversation from adding someone else you do not approve of being added? I appreciate the effort you have put into this, and I know this is how email works, but email is not called private email, whereas this is called personal/private messages/conversations.
I'm working on converting my forum today from UBB 7.6.5 and I keep running into an error at the Members import step. It will import 1 row and then throw this error
ipb2.local Driver Error
There appears to be an error with the database.
If you are seeing this page, it means there was a problem communicating with our database. Sometimes this error is temporary and will go away when you refresh the page. Sometimes the error will need to be fixed by an administrator before the site will become accessible again.
There is nothing in the php error log indicating what the error might be. I'm logging my mysql queries and this is the last query that runs when before error
As a user of QA sites like stackoverflow I appreciate their existence, but I think in some genres (like anything computer related) they threaten forums immensely. Do you guys have a strategy beyond this feature that addresses the above, where people can get similar QA functionality (specific answers) but in a forum type of way (discussion) so it's the best of both worlds? This seems like a great start. Nice work!
I've posted this in another forum and talked to support; they suggested posting this here.
I am converting from UBB to IPB and PhotoPost to IP Gallery. In our posts we have about 15k image tags (not to be confused with links) that imbed photos from PhotoPost. What I'm hoping to do is convert those image tags to the appropriate image paths for the IP Gallery conversion as well as include the correct tags for the lightbox feature to work.
Has anyone attempted to do this?
I know this can be done, it will require a script, it's just a matter of whether I have to write it or has someone already done something similar.
Thanks Brandon. It's not the links to images I'm worried about, it's image tags that I'm worried about. Are there any current method to convert the ubb image tags to the appropriate IPB ones and correct the src paths to the Gallery5 images?
