    Converter cannot properly convert member names/emails from Joomla/Kunena
    Hello,

    I tried converting a Joomla 1.6 version with Kunena 1.6.4 forum to IP.Board 3.2.3 and failed.

    There's definitely a bug in Converter software. I downloaded and used the latest version "Converters-09_Dec_2011".

    Let me explain this in detail.

    The conversion from Joomla and Kunena combo is done in two steps. In the first step this data is converted:


    [i]Permission Sets[/i]
    [i]Member Groups[/i]
    [i]Members[/i]
    [i]Database Categories[/i]
    [i]Articles[/i]

    And the errors occur in this first step converting permissions and member groups.

    Then I convert members, process looks nice but after it ends I get around 350 results like these:

    And the end result when I go look in the database how converted data looks I see this nonsense:

    [attachment=35984:1323515402598-uploadscreenshot-dot-com.gif]

    Definitely an error with converter...

    Despite that I continue with the conversion


    [i]Categories & Forums [/i]
    [i]Forum Moderators [/i]
    [i]Topics [/i]
    [i]Posts [/i]
    [i]Reputations [/i]
    [i]Polls[/i]
    [i]Attachments[/i]

    Then I go on to convert forum mods I get such errors


    [quote]The following errors occurred:

    1: No member or group name provided
    2: No member or group name provided
    3: No member or group name provided
    4: No member or group name provided
    5: No member or group name provided
    6: No member or group name provided
    7: No member or group name provided
    8: No member or group name provided
    9: No member or group name provided[/quote]

    Despite a few errors here and there the posts, topic and forums seem to convert okay. But all members are as guests with a long string of numbers attached and numeric emails. All in all a trainwreck.

    I would gladly supply the database for debugging reasons hoping that you can convert it properly in the process.
