I am using the official import script for vBulletin v5 and I ran into an issue.
My vBulletin forum structure is like:
/forum/ /forum/sub-category1/ /forum/sub-category1/thread1/ /forum/sub-category1/thread2/ /forum/sub-category2/ /forum/sub-category2/thread1/ /forum/sub-category2/thread2/
When I run the import script this results in two categories in Discourse without any threads:
I checked out a different vBulletin forum and noticed that they do not nest their URLs. I now assume that this is the change that I have to make to my Forum before I am able to use the script:
/forum/ /forum/sub-category1/ /forum/sub-category2/ /forum/thread1a/ /forum//thread2a/ /forum/thread1b/ /forum//thread2b/
Afterwards, I would have to manually assign categories to every thread again.
Does someone have experience using this script?
Is there maybe something that jumps to your eyes inside the script, that can be changed so that it can handle a more nested structure? I might be on a wrong path completely.
