I receive this message:

We cannot continue due to a missing dependency. 0 of type forum is missing. Perhaps you are trying to import in an impossible order?

What could this be?

It looks like you've got a topic in a forum "0", which doesn't exist.

This modified sources/hooks/modules/admin_import/phpbb3.php file will skip any topics like this instead of giving an error…

» Download: phpbb3.php (47 Kb, 146 downloads so far)

Let us know if it works please :).

Become a fan of ocPortal on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter.
Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

It works fine now, only it seems it does some changes to the posts (text size etc.)

But it's always better than nothing :)

Ps. when importing the PM it gives a mysql error, I will add the call stack to a support ticked.
