As we progress through the beta's Myself and many of my site visitors are getting excited about 7.0

Has anybody with a busy UBB Classic site taken the big plunge and imported to the new Threads.
I have 5000+ members, 200,000 or so posts in 40+ forums. Trying to decide how long to wait.

It looks like many of the bugs are squished now from what I am reading.

Any words of wisdom from those who have made the jump would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Do a test import.
This way you will iron out any bugs or changes
you may need to make.

I done a test import worked fine.
2hrs conversion.

Problem
Only to find that the mysql database finished at
125mb. My soon to be EX web host limited sql at 100mb.

So im now able to move webhost without
finding out on the day you think your going to move.

Post Icons
This may not be relevant to you.
But i changed my classic post icons
more as a prefrence of order and styles.

Now i have all my "Attenttion" posticons laughing
after the import.

I will have to make a query to update
them too look relevant again.

Do a test import...
It takes time, but worth it to tweak things.
Iron out problems.

And to tweak the control panel settings
as there are somthings that dont come over.

Hope that helps


BOOM !! Version v7.6.1.1

I'm thinking maybe you were asking if you should do a switch yet. I would hold off to at least beta 4 as Rick has done a lot of updates to beta 3.

I imported everything, but I only have 500 members and about 9000 posts (board is 1 month old). Worked fine after tweaking the importer. I think Rick fixed the importer, but not sure if the updated one is the one on the website now.

Anyway, hold off to at least beta 4.

Beta 4 has been released for the private testers. If all goes well, everyone else will get it in the next couple of days.

I have 20t Members, 640t Posts, 140 forums and the importer works fine smile
The import progress takes ~ 27 hours, but in comparison with the old yaml importer it is very very fast laugh

The sql db is a bit large ~1,2 GB, but with a own server no problem.

Nice work smile

Interesting smile Did you have a lot of private messages? I have a client with ~20k members and 1.2million posts and his db is about 750mb. I think there's only 10k pm's tho.
