Phpbb to Vanilla - posts don't have smiles, but I installed plugin...

edited January 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
I want to change from phpbb3 to vanilla, but after I import the db, the posts don't have smiles, just the codes like this :"
<img class=" title="Mrgreen" />"
or error pics. I tried Emoticons and Emotify :) az well, but none of them helped. It's very annoying to have the comments with lots of error pics or code in it... :(
Any idea how to fix this? Thank you! :)

    You're going to need some regular expression find-and-replace to fix that directly in your database. Unfortunately the importer doesn't yet account for phpBB's handling of smilies.

    You mean changing phpBB_posts table content? For example search and replace all /icon_smile.gif with :)
    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, but what I'd do is get it to save the alt text (since that's the smiley code, it appears) and strip out the rest of the img element.
