OK, we're back again, now with the "correct" member numbers...

That sucked. Apparently you have to run the import twice in a row to get it to remove any test dbs you used before (Ted and I have been testing this all week to make sure this went smooth ::) )

Anyway, the member numbers were basically doubled because the test we brought it left off at 2 + 169 for 171 so the next member was 172... Ted and I are now #1 and #2, and now everyone should go up from there, but you'll be one or 2 numbers higher due to the fact we had to have accounts here and there to make sure everything is/was working....

So anyway, MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! Hope you like vB! :D

Here's what's supposed to be different:

You're sigs will have errors if they are/were anything more than text, use your cp to edit them.
if you had a gear list in your signature, this is especially true, go here (http://www.newschoolofphotography.com/forum/showthread.php?t=2778) go info on how to fix that.
avatars did not get carried over. There are also new limits imposed on them (80p x 80p and <10k). Again, go to your cp and get everything setup.
you have to reset your password. Passwords are encrypted and therefor can't be imported. If you're in here and logged in you figured it out. This is here for those people who might still be guests because they can't get in.If you're having any issues with this, email me (the contact us link at the bottom of the forum).
NUDES and FOR SALE both have a 10 post needed limit on them. It seems that this is 10 posts SINCE THE MOVE as I can see that usergroup growing... If you can't get in, post for a while (get 10 new posts) and then double check. If you can get in it would be nice to know that, and if you can't get in, I'd also like to know. Post that info at the bottom. I think that's about it. POST HERE AS SOON AS YOU'RE IN SO I KNOW WHO'S MADE IT OVER!!!!!

Thanks!

2) did you reset your password that time?
3) if you're back a second time, did you have to reset it again?

Yes, all members are 2 higher EXCEPT for myself and Ted. We had to register in the new bd pre import to set it up... We merged our old users with the new users so we only have one user each, but because there were 2 existing users in the db, when we imported everything became one higher.

jacobsen1
12-20-2007, 12:15 AM

It's because ted and I had to be here to set everything up, then when everyone got imported they started at 3 because it was the next # available.

Here's what's supposed to be different:
*you have to re-enter your sigs.
*you have to re-enter your avatars (there is a 1kb limit on UPLOADED avatars, but remote avatars should be fine... it's set to 80x80)
*you have to reset your passwords... email anyone you know that you haven't seen since the switch. I'm trying to get the system to it for me....

I think that's about it. POST HERE AS SOON AS YOU'RE IN SO I KNOW WHO'S MADE IT OVER!!!!!

I made it here both times... however the remote avatar thing isnt working for me. says its too big, and it probably is. 10k is friggening small for an avatar.

LOVING THE MULTI QUOTES!!!! :D


Ben, we've also lost the big button at the top that links to www.newschoolofphotography.com (http://www.newschoolofphotography.com) rather than the forums index.

yeah, I didn't put the code in for this one. vB has a slick admin backend and then pages upon pages of options and style sheets. I'll look into that today and see what I can dig up. I know it's not what you want, but at the very bottom where it says NewSchoolOfPhotography.com, that's a link to the homepage...


no nudes is good nudes? can't see 'em. Unless the amount of posts has gone up. I can see the for sale though.

I need to figure that out. It is still set at 10, but the way permissions work on vB is way different that SMF. Before your member group has the permissions in it. Now the member groups are user groups and that number can be used as a "promotion"... So I have a promotion setup to get you to BtDt (been there done that) once you hit 10... It will work eventually, but it may be setup wrong right now.


And Nudes is there - it looks like post counts carried over?

So you're in... This is what's so confusing... Some people are in, others aren't. :confused:

One quick note, tho Ben. The background and the dropdown menu at the bottom and the font are all same color. You may need to turn off the ninja font mode or something. I can see the menu once I click on the arrow, but if I am just looking at the line, I see nothing.
