Porter vBulletin 4.x import attachments, what am I missing?
I'm doing a test conversion of a vBulletin v4.2.1 forum into Vanilla 2.1.5. In vBulletin I changed the attachment type from MySQL storage to regular file storage. Then I ran Porter which created the export file. The export file did not contain any attachments, nor did I see any other zip files created by Porter that would contain the attachments. So, I manually copied the attachemnt folders/files into the Uploads/FileUpload folder (the plug-in was already enabled). Then I ran the import. Once the import finished I checked a couple of posts with attachments.
They look something like this:
And then below that there is a thumbnail which is a generic blank image. When hovering the mouse over the attachment it shows the original file name correctly but the path goes to the following folder:
uploads/attachments/8/4/6/0/1735.jpg (the original file type but the file name is not 1735.jpg) but my attachment files from vBulletin are all .attach and .thumb files.
The FileUpload plugin is v1.7.1, which I found in another discussion post after the v1.5.2 plugin wasn't working right. For some reason v1.7.1 is not on the official plugin page though.
What am I missing with this conversion process.. This is very frustrating. I'm really close to just dropping the idea of moving to Vanilla because I've spent days trying to work through stuff like this that shouldn't be so difficult.
Any help figuring this out would be greatly appreciated.
