For reference, @mondododo has opened an issue here:
akhoury/nodebb-plugin-import#117mondododo created this issue in akhoury/nodebb-plugin-import closed [exporter] Esotalk #117
That's definitely possible. It might take more iterations over the records, which means more importing time, but doable.
Right now I am trying to import your 1.1M posts and getting segmentation fault errors, once I get passed those, I'll look into adding more features.
Sweet. Thanks for your work
awesome! thanks man, I will test that VB exporter and release it soon!
Killer. Looking forward to trying it out. Need to breathe new life into that site. Change is probably the answer.
@bentael can you list the forums that you still need DB dumps for?
@Steve Thanks again for your db dump.
Also, I recommend that you use the latest importer plugin firstname.lastname@example.org
cd /path/to/nodebb rm -rf node_modules/nodebb-plugin-import npm install nodebb-plugin-import # or npm update nodebb-plugin-import # then activate it from the ACP and use it in there.
Also, after the import is complete, you can use the post-import tools to convert the BBCode to Markdown
Let me know if you're having issues.
@bentael Legend :d
If your not busy could you help me with some nodejs
i saw your chat msg, ill reply there
Any interest in Drupal based forums?
@Shard sure, I basically don't have a finite set of source forums, whatever the people wants
@bentael Okay. Let me see what I can do to scrub them.
@bentael You've got mail - it may be too large, let me know if it doesn't show.
@Shard got it ! thanks,
I will take a look at this the following weekend, I'm on a tight schedule with a long backlog of work.
maybe sooner, looked at the schema, seems pretty straight forward
I didn't see the earlier post about post bookmarks until now, but that cannot be migrated over. Post bookmarks are specifically a client-side feature, meaning your bookmarks on one machine (e.g. a desktop) don't carry over to another (e.g. a laptop).
It could be a server-backed feature, however, just at the current time, it is not.
@julian are you talking about migrating old forums URLs that use the
location.hash to "scroll to posts"?
I don't think it would be too hard.
https://github.com/akhoury/RedirectBB redirects solely on the server at the moment, however, i can have it
serve a blank page (or with a "redirecting" text in it) and in that page a script tag that reads the hash value, the old
_pid, sends a requests to RedirectBB instance to get the corresponding new
Sure it won't be seamless, but, it shouldnt be too slow. The RediectBB instance loads the Map in memory, so there is no DB call.
thanks @bentael you rock man, glad my db was able to help unlock some of the import mysteries.
setting up a test node now to screw around.
