***PROVIDED AS IS NO SUPPORT ***

This was based off work done on a user's site who had a need to import Invisionboard to Pro as they where switching to Xenforo. I do not use Invisionboard Gallery so no guarantees everything 100%.

This importer will import categories and albums as well as photos and comments from Invisionboard Gallery. It was written off 5.04 version of that gallery product.

Import Instructions for Invisionboard import.

1. Upload the two files to your photopost directory and CHMOD invbg.cnf.php to 777

2. Run the importer through your web browser and fill in all required info and paths for both programs

3. The importer will cycle through in steps each process.

4. After Import cleanup work needed.

a. In Admin => Edit Categories view the cats list and hit save. Scan down each parent in sortcats and hit save. This reinitializes the children count to show children of parent cats. Very Important. Any cat that is clickable meaning it has children click the cat to see the child list and hit save.

b. Under Scan Database recheck and build photo and post counts for categories as well as medium images and user last post count.

c. Make sure to set any usergroup and categories permissions you see fit.
