Migrating to IP.Gallery

8 posts in this topic

We are migrating our forum (UBB) and gallery (PhotoPost) software to IPB. We have been on this platform for almost 12 years and have a board with over 23k registered users and 1 million posts. Of the many issues that we face in this migration, images from PhotoPost that are embedded in posts is one of the largest. The simplest solution to this is leaving the old photopost data folder in it current location to maintain the image paths. Ideally, I'd like to take advantage of the all the Gallery functionality including the new lightbox functionality.

So my question is are there any solutions out there that will scan the database and correct the src paths and add the correct tags to convert inline PhotoPost images to Gallery 5?

Thanks!

I forgot to add. We are on Photopost 7.1. Will the converter work on this version?

Has anyone migrated both their forum and gallery to IPB? What did you do about your imbedded links? I know I'm not the first :)

I'll move your topic to Presales as you do need information on the conversion itself, however it may be easier to open a ticket in the Client Area if you are not sure of specifics about what the Photopost converter will do. :)

I just took a look at the converters package, and there are redirect scripts for Photopost included with the download. The old links should redirect to the new URLs.

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?

This question I'm afraid I don't know the answer to (I'm not involved at all with the conversions area). I recommend emailing sales@invisionpower.com to get a definitive accurate answer. :)

bikedorkseattle, I am interested in how your conversion from UBB has bone including your PhotoPost migration as well. I too am looking to move from UBB to IPB and I also use PhotoPost.
