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:


Permission Sets
Member Groups
Members
Database Categories
Articles

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:


The following errors occurred:

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

Definitely an error with converter...

Despite that I continue with the conversion


Categories & Forums
Forum Moderators
Topics
Posts
Reputations
Polls
Attachments

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


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


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.

Any luck? It should be "name" to Display Name and "username" to login.

The Joomla / Kunena converter has been updated since this bug report was created so I suspect that this has already been fixed, from what I can see in SVN.

 

If this does still happen please feel free to submit a ticket for my attention with your database so that I may test.
