We have a problem with the pictures assigned to a thread - they are wrong.
Not in any place but in some like here:
and quite sure there are a lot of other threads with that problem, but we don't know why and how to fix it.
Since the pictures are connected with monthly_2019_03 in their path and we converted from vbulletin/photopost to ipb, I assume something began going wrong somewhere and it started mixing pictures and threads.
We would need to know what items they should be there in order to advise. You have aid they are not the correct ones, but we need to know what is correct also
I don't know and as a matter of fact I am afraid I have to reinstall the old vbulletin board to take a look at that.
Any better idea?
Its very unlikely that this is related to a conversion, however unfortunately as this is a conversion from quite a considerable amount of time ago, there would be little we could do to resolve the issue. The reality is, you would need to check any conversions at the time, and if there are issues it would need to be reverted, fixed in the converter, and reconverted in most instances.
It actually looks like it may be some kind of redirect issue, so it may well be related to a conversion at some point. As mentioned however, due to the length of time, thats going to cause issues on trying to resolve the problem
Just as an idea - is there a way to convert the old board again and substitute this for the old conversion? Kind of a broadsword attack maybe.
It would not be as simple as that unfortunately. Items may have different IDs once converted the second time around, and the issue itself may well be present in any case
Thanks for your early answers.
We had a RAM error with our SQL server new years eve 2020/2021. No ECC and faulty hardware - one of the errors one always hears of on long winter evenings, but never sees one in glorious technicolor and stereophonic sound.
This brought an error up in one table that was not automatically repairable. Due to the faulty hardware it was not possible to simple take the backup from yesterday, but using the binlog and two days of work could be fixed and it didn't look like we had lost anything.
So to get as much information as possible, i will find out, where the problem with the database was and set up the old system again to get a glimpse at the pictures that belong there.
Any other idea to start to solve this problem?
There isnt really anything I can offer from a support standpoint unfortunately, as the usual option has been and gone (revert the conversion and we can get someone to look at it as it goes through). I can pass your ticket to our sales team to see if there is anything we can offer here if you would like me to do this?
Sorry for the delay, took one trip of Covid and some other serious health issues.
I installed my old virtual bulletin 3, which was quite an adventure and in that last version, that we imported into our Invision board these pictures where missing. So there should be no pictures at all in that thread and not the wrong ones.
Maybe you have any ideas on how to solve that?
Unfortunaetly, there is nothing further I can really offer without developer assistance to see whats happened there. If you can show a before and after example, I can get a ticket created to see if we can see anything there
