Duplicate posts importer-phpbb
I am testing nodeBB which is the greater candidate to migrate our old phpBB forum
However we encounter a problem with the importer-phpbb (tested psychobunny, jskorepa version...)
Tested with version 1.0.3 (according to the documentation) and 1.0 and phpbb 3.0.7
Problem : during the convertion, topics are created with the initial message, but when it go on the posts populating step, first message is duplicated.
I had opened an issue on github @psychobunny but the problem seems to be global on all the importer-phpbb.
Found *** a partial but incomplete *** solution
Copy paste this in /src/routes/debug.js
Then start : ./nodebb dev
This clean the duplicate posts
But posts count is not updated. I will search for that.
EDIT : not clean, some topics with one post are empty now... and i didn't find for the moment how to update the postcount...
Found nothing interesting about this behaviour so i up this thread.
Some of ours posts are duplicated not the older ones... Strange.
You can have a look at https://beta.entiamot.com to see the convertion results with the duplicated posts.
Nothing better right now
The post count is stored in the
<tid>is replaced with a specific tid. You can update the number here.
Seems to be hard because you need to recompute the stats per user / global / topics / sub-forum...
Is there/will, maybe in the future, a global functionnality to run a complete recompute of all stats ?
I don't think so... because that would be a band-aid on top, instead of fixing the underlying problem.
NodeBB to my knowledge properly keeps count of topics and posts... if it doesn't, please do let us know
