This script will import your vBulletin albums as Member Albums in PhotoPost PRO. The script allows for any imported data to be removed (cleaned) and has been tested on a site with hundreds of albums, thousands of photos and comments; however, this is still a BETA product.

Okay, I need some help here. I ran the import script and this is what happened:
Ran importer, no photos showed up, so I scanned the database to see if I just needed to update things and the like. The member gallery category was showing no photos were uploaded, unless you clicked around in weird ways.
So I scanned the database from the Photopost admin cp to see if that would fix it. It did fix somethings, but then the categories went all crazy. Comments from photos were showing up as categories and such. It was weird.
So I then assumed something had gone wrong with the import script, so I used the "Clear" function, but the comments still showed up as categories.
I have since disabled the gallery so that no one uploads anything to it in case I need to wipe it clean and start over (it was a fresh install that had no photos in it, just categories made up so people could start).
Thank you very much for the importer. You will run into problems if your [control pane][user albums][Album Picture Storage Type] is set to "Pictures into the file system without direct access to thumbnails" - I had to debug errors complaining about file write permissions however there was no issue with the write, it's that ($vbulletin->options['album_dataloc'] == 'fs_directthumb') was evaluating to FALSE and it was trying to pull my images from the database when they weren't there. The resulting attempt to write a NULL blob triggers the write fail.
Solution - shift album images to the database, then reimport.
I also had to apply the helpful things above after the import - "turn off the category cache in global options" and then "admin => scan database and choice to rebuild the members last photo".
Once that's done, go to your VB [options][User Profile Options] admin and you can disable the VB profile page albums from there now you have imported into PP.
I have several "gallery" threads (created because we didn't have a gallery previously) on different topics with thousands of images in them. Is there any script available which would scour those threads, pull the images out, and post them in a PP gallery as if those users had posted them there, and update the old image attachments to be IMG links to the new gallery images? (A lot to ask! But nonetheless handy!)
