I need Help ! / Re: Moving from Yahoo Groups to bbPress using PGO
« Last post by Wilson Logan on April 29, 2020, 03:23:22 AM »
The problem I have is running the BBpress functions to reconnect all the parents to children etc.

Once you get to 5000+ posts the time the functions take exceed the server timeout.

I've done some experimenting with bbPress and it is possible to do it manually, but as expected it's super time-consuming. Basically you need to use a CSV importer and split your messages into three spreadsheets/tables - one for your forum, one for topics, and one for replies. I followed this thread: https://bbpress.org/forums/topic/import-bb-data-from-csv-file-to-bbpress-forum/. If there was a way to automate the splitting into the three different tables it would be a lot faster. But I was able to import a 50-post group into a local Wordpress install successfully, if not the cleanest result (Yahoo formatting was crap). Quotes do not work. Lots of manual cleaning up may be needed.

Although I think I did write a PG4 to MBOX python program.

So if you send me your PG4 file I can convert it for you.

Or I can send you the Python code.

Hi,
 
So there is an MBOX import in 907 but it needs special handling.

It takes the X-Apparently-To:  field as the group name.

E.g.

X-Apparently-To: cetarch@yahoogroups.com


so the bit between X-Apparently-To: & "@"   is the groupname.

which is all fine and well until its X-Apparently-To: bob@gmail.com

which we didn't expect.

So you need to clean your MBOX file before import to insure all occurrences are in this form

X-Apparently-To: <groupname>@yahoogroups.com


There are no plans for MBOX export.

Bug Report / Re: P2G File Upload - files not arriving in Group
« Last post by Wilson Logan on February 07, 2020, 02:53:43 AM »
Try this latest version:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/i6uk25z1sfm7j3g/PGOGroups%20v.1.0.7.3.zip?dl=0


BTW here is a top tip:

If you copy the "recentData" file from an older version into a newer version, it copies all the uploaded data, etc from the old version.
It copies all the message states and login data as well.

E.g.  if I wanted to go from 1.0.7.1 to 1.0.7.3  I would copy

C:\Users\evildrome\Downloads\PGOGroups v.1.0.7.1\Data\recentData

to

C:\Users\evildrome\Downloads\PGOGroups v.1.0.7.3\Data

Cheers,

Wilson.

I need Help ! / Re: Is there a way to mass-delete groups from a database?
« Last post by Wilson Logan on February 02, 2020, 04:32:07 PM »
The bigger your db gets the slower it will be.....

Anyway, you can add manually OR...  you can 'poke' the db manually.

You want the discussion_group table.

You can just add entries manually. Very fast.

When you see the table it will be immediately apparent what to do.

Use SQLiteStudio.  Its a free SQLite database editor.
