Thank you @pfaffman for the work on the InvisionBoard converter.
I’ve been able to set it up, to connect to my remote database but I have a few questions after browsing the code and facing script errors.
- What version of IPBoard
OLD_FORMATis meant for? I don’t have an
ipb_forums_posts(old format) and I don’t have an
ipb_attachmenteither (with v4.3)
- What is
AVATARS_DIRimplies avatars to be stored locally somewhere, and they are being copied to Discourse from the filesystem, not via HTTP?
- What are the implications of having
ID_FIRSTbeing set to
true? I’m new to Discourse and I don’t yet grasp the meaning of
permalink_normalizationsbeing set or not
- If an install fails, can I re-run it without duplicating previously imported data? (in case I hack and rerun the importer multiple times)
Thanks for your help,
I’d be happy to submit a pull request if I manage to bring the import somewhere
