We had high hopes migrating from IPB 3 to Vanilla, who doesn't :)
The import went through with no errors but checking the result; titles, posts, replies... got truncated/cut.

Our forum is in Swedish, we have characters such as å, ä, ö. Some titles, posts and replies with those characters did go through but the majority did not.

Checking the export file, a phrase like this one: "så skulle jag göra det" looks like this in the export: "s skulle jag gˆra det"

If anyone knows a way around this, let us know!
