Custom data disappeared after converting to phpbb3

Post by h1j4ck3r » Tue Feb 10, 2009 1:45 pm

Hi,

I've converted my board from phpbb2 to phpbb3.

On the old board I've had few custom profile fields. Now as I see these fields are missing, respectively the data too.

I've added these fields from the ACP, but now I'll have to ask my member to reinsert the data.

Is it possible to convert this custom data automatically or it will has to be done manually?

Thanks

Afaik, mods are not supported in the conversion process. If you've recreated the custom fields then the easiest way to populate them would be having the users do it themselves.

The only MODs supported by the conversion are the attachment and birthday MODs.

You'll have to make custom profile fields and ask the users to reinsert that information.
