MyBB Thread Retrieval Requests

Post by bahua » Fri Jun 19, 2009 6:45 pm

If you want a thread that was created under the old forum system retrieved and adapted to this forum, then please say so here. The official guidance is for you to link the thread on the mybb site. For example.

As I will still update it, I'd like for the Bangkok thread I created to be transferred over please.

Bahua~

Please retrieve all of my Watkins Glen thread. I believe it is at http://mybb.kcrag.com/showthread.php?tid=14011

Thank you for doing this for me and for all of us. It must be a nightmare for you.

*snort*
It's slightly funny that the requests so far deal with threads not having anything to do with KC directly.

Looking at this issue, and now that I'm thinking about it, I'm not sure how we can actually copy these threads over. I think that if a user wants to keep it up, they're probably going to have to move them themselves, by starting a new thread, and copying/pasting the data over from how the text looks in "full edit" mode in mybb. The format is about the same, with differences that will be obvious when you try to preview the posts over here, if any exist.

If you have any trouble, please let me know. Once your thread is up, I'll make a reply of my own with all the replies in it.

Bahua~

I was able to do a reply-and-quote function on the first group of missing pictures in my Watkins Glen thread on MyBB. Then I simply copied the "quoted" text and pasted it in a normal reply in the SMF thread. I did that with subsequent posts until all were transferred over. I did not capture the nice comments made by other posters, but at least I got all my pictures back. (I think.)

Thanks for your help.
