    Did you modify the file in any way?

    seems my edit windows expired so i'll just post again that we seem to be imported and running somewhat.

    side note:we have a lot of photos on our forum and it's a different tag to phpbb3 is there anyway to change this apart from individual post edits?

    What are the tag differences?

    What version of Vanilla are you running?

    phpbb3 uses the [IMG] tag
    any posts with an image URL just show up as the image address and if viewing the source for a post its enclosed in the IMG tags

    any smilies in posts show up as broken images in the image tags.not so much an issue though.

    can i link to an example thread? http://dirtyoldguitars.com/vanillatest/discussion/73/temptation#Item_15

    running Version 2.0.18.8

    thanks for your help

    That link asks me to login. I tried to make an account, but you need to set up your reCaptcha key.

    Alright. From what I gathered, you have two issues:

    1. Your default input formatter is set to HTML. This is why new [img] won't work.
    2. Your old posts have the url encoded and escaped so the BBCode parser isn't working correctly.

    The first one is easy to fix, put $Configuration['Garden']['InputFormatter'] = 'BBCode'; in your /conf/config.php file.

    The second issue will require you to do some regex/parsing on the db (or on the import files). The example of http:\/\/auctions.c.yimg.jp\/img239.auctions.yahoo.co.jp\/users\/1\/7\/5\/6\/moondistortion-img600x563-1369633470r4cmql80700.jpg should come out to http://auctions.c.yimg.jp/img239.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/users/1/7/5/6/moondistortion-img600x563-1369633470r4cmql80700.jpg.

    I am not entirely sure of an easy way to do this. Maybe someone else here can come up with a more intelligent way.

    ok so i did step 1 that seemed simple enough.
    if i click edit on a post then save it made the image appear.
    the one in your last post didn't.
    edit:same as in some other posts elsewhere.I think i understand what you're referring to in issue 2 now a bit

    and i have no idea what you mean in step 2 honestly I think I should maybe leave that alone ... for now anyway
