Hello,

I've used a column 'description'. Check a table 'topics'. Otherwise you will need to rename a column.

Hello, could expand on this renaming thing please? I bought this plugin and it works fine. Now before I used the (Pav33) Topic Description hook. I didn't uninstall it but the old topic descriptions from IPB 3.4 are not showing now on IPB 4.1. Maybe they are gone from the database, but I suspect they are probably there somewhere. I can see in the database where your new data is, but who knows where the previous one was. Mind you, databases scare me, every time I even just look at one, I feel like I'm performing open brain surgery ;)

Now, I've only upgraded my test installation of IPB to 4.1, my live site still is (and will be for quite some time) 3.4. Even looking at that database I cannot find where the descriptions are (and they do show on the forums, so they are there somewhere).

So, any help you could provide regarding this would be much welcome. Cheers.

1. Find old topic with description.

2. Run sql query. If your tables has a prefix add it in query.

SELECT *
FROM forums_topics
WHERE tid=X

X is topic ID.

3. Find old description

4. Look at field name.


No need it. I found a column name here https://invisionpower.com/forums/topic/349558-download-pav33-topic-description/

You are right. Description will be removed during the upgrade.

applications/forums/setup/upg_40000/upgrade.php

        $description	= \IPS\Db::i()->checkForColumn( 'forums_topics', 'description' ) ? "DROP COLUMN description," : '';

Hello,

You can do it yourself.

The description is wrapped in a block with class (topics list page) or ID (topic view page) nbTopicDescription

While I see this thread up, I'd like to ask a question about what's quoted above. With every upgrade within the 4.x version series in my test installation, I've been commenting that line out before upgrading (I even need to trick the IPS upgrader lately because it detects a file has been changed, so I need to make the switch after step 1 of the upgrade).

Now, is doing this really needed once you have upgraded to 4.x? Or is it only needed when upgrading from 3.4.x to 4.x?
