Sorry to reply again. I’m struggling to figure out why permalinks aren’t being created.
I’m using the default ugly URLs in SMF2 on the toplevel root domain. Discourse is installed on a subdomain of that root domain. I’ve used the smf2.rb importer in the latest Discourse repo to convert SMF2 to Discourse (following your guide), but there are no permalinks in Discourse after import finished.
You’d change that permalink (or maybe the couple other ones?) to whatever ugly ones look like? Though, that looks pretty ugly to me. You might also adjust the permalink_normalizations at the top of the file.
I’m confused because the version I linked seems to be the most recent “official” version… but you’re the second person who referenced a different version. What am I missing? Where can I get your version?
Aha! Sorry. It looks like I clicked the smf1 script. So look at smf1.rb1 that’s right there with the smf2.rb script you’re looking at.
You can either look at the smf1 script or use make_prettyurl_permalinks as a model to create a make_uglyurl_permalinks. But that is reading from the pretty URL table, so it might be easier to use smf1.rb as a model, but I’d have to look at the database to tell for sure. No. That won’t help much either unless you modify the create_xxx functions.
Sorry. I don’t see a fix that can be explained here.
So I thought my import issues were possibly related to S3 issues, but turns out S3 seems to be working just fine. The issue I’m having is that after running the import script (with S3 enabled) and rebuilding the import container, it seems all topics in Discourse are lacking the uploads that are attachments in smf2 topics. In other words, there’s no visual cue that there is even an upload in a Discourse topic, which is clearly seen as an attachment in its smf2 topic equivalent. It’s the same result when I import with S3 disabled. A bit out of ideas here. Any thoughts?
It may be that the images are attached to the post, so the import script knows to import them, but that they are not referenced in the post so that they don’t appear. You need to modify the post text to include a link to the images. I’ve seen that, I think with a different forum.
