That will be your Windoze software—it started happening at a time there had been ZERO changes to the board.

When we move over to XenForo your YouTube problems should be over. If not I will hassle them mercilessly as I have PAID for the software.

People should post a youtube link as a youtube and also as a file reference {URL]. . .[/U RL} until the new software is running. Hopefully the conversion will be done by tomorrow morning early.

Posting videos and photo is a breeze with that XenForo thing. Especially photos, where it does all resizing. Once you get used to it, you'll love it. Beats the crap out of this php stuff.

XenForo is php stuff, just not phpBB stuff.

Tickets is how you request help or lodge a problem or exception report to your webhost or (commercial) software supplier etc.

OK, got all the info, started import. . .started importing, did private messages—then got a page full of error messages which I handballed to XenForo as it is their importer.

No cigar yet—but getting closer!

This would have been easier a couple months ago or in a couple months time. But it will get done.

Made an edit to a php file, started the import. . .still got stuck. Will send them the database as a backup file.

OK, Xenforo reckons the data is stil in 3.0 format. (doubt it but there you go.)

So—I could back the data up, install phpBB3.2 on the website, import the data into 3.2. and export it then import into XenForo. If it works—delete the database and a couple other things and repeat. (ATM there are two copies of every PM, me not bothering to zero the data before trying something else.)

There is also another database that I might try importing into Xenforo but dunno how up to date it is—Xenforo suggested that.

Wish they would just finish the 3.3 importer, that is the current version of phpBB3 anyway.

I have deliberately left all this but in a day or two I will get stuck into it again.

Bloody lawyers, can’t read anything unless 100 words are used where two or three would do.
