I have searched this one, honest I have :). Is there a way to disable "Feature images". I don't mind the recent images, but not really that keen on Featured images. Didn't worry me to start with, but now its just showing the same album all the time. I would actually like to disable that feature altogether.
You guys seem to know what you are doing with it is all ;).
Its working Lucy. I create a folder called "a", download a group of attachments from the SMF folder (300 at a time) and upload them to "a". Then with the attachments converter in IPB, locate............ /public_html/a
then convert that folder and it adds the images to whats already there in the uploads folder of IPB. Rebuild the topics and a couple of other clicks and its working. Sounds complicated, but after the first try, its easy :smile: . So at least this way the posts are showing the correct attachments. Also at that quantity of images, its not crashing at 60%, phew.
All the best and thanks for in here. Shame hostpapa can't help out. Never mind.
So it looks like I might have to try this another way. I'll slowly create folders on the server for the IPB upload folder from another attachments folder in the root. I've pruned a lot of attachments to make it easier, shame but I can't think of another way around it.
Anyway, thanks for the help. Nice to know you folks are here :smile:
Good point, but I stay and watch the whole process with only that window open................ unless I'm getting logged out automatically at a set period of time. Hmmm, maybe not because I still stay in the admin area. Strange one. Also wondering if there is a limit set somewhere on the "Uploads" folder as to size limit, similar to SMF which you can change from the admin area.
Hey, thanks for your time and effort. its appreciated Lucy. I might just submit a ticket.
Howdy folks, just bought and had it installed the other day by Rhett. A huge thanks for his help, fantastic.
So converting from SMF to IP board and I've tried this 5 times with the same result. I can find the attachments folder and it starts to convert, but then at 60% the screen just goes white and the conversion stops at exactly 60%.
The images in the attachments folder for SMF is 1.7 gig roughly (nature photography forum) so is that size a problem of does the IP board need to have a folder somewhere increased in size from the admin area.
I'm sure I will have more questions for the experts, but I try and solve most things my self with searches.
