Is it possible to bring the bookmarks forward to 3.1 from 2.1

  • I recently had Woltlab upgrade my site to the latest forum version. Many of the plugins I had were available for the new 3.1 forum.


    The bookmarks however didn't make the transition. I have over 2000 members and some of them had pages of bookmarks. And they have asked every day if I would please try to retrieve their bookmarks I have looked thru the SQL dump and its so large that I cant find the bookmark section. Even if I did find it I probably wouldn't be able to use it.


    Is their anyway possible that I can pay you to help me. I have the SQL dump from the day before the upgrade happened. I have people using the new bookmark plugin and its working great. I just need to bring the old bookmarks over and make them happy. ^^

  • Well, the 2.x-version has an export function...

    If you did an upgrade to 3.1 (not import), it would be possible. During an update user and post IDs do not change; doing an import, they might change.


    Try to extract the table wbb1_uzbookmark from the dump and we'll see.

  • I just checked in the new database and all 831 bookmarks are there. Is there a way to reindex so that it will pick up those bookmarks and put them under each user that had them. Or if the user had a way to find the post ID they could just find the post with this list and recreate the bookmark. But like I said they are all in the new database.


    Below is a snippet of the list that is attached. There are about 831 bookmarks total.

  • I just checked in the new database and all 831 bookmarks are there.

    How fortunate ;-)


    Use the attached plugin to convert the old bookmarks into the new format. It will do the work during installation. Just uninstall it afterwards and do not re-install it. Each installation will create new bookmarks. If everything is ok, you can delete the old table wbb1_uzbookmark.


    Please, use it only if you did an update and not an import; it requires the user and post IDs to be identical (old / new system). And there must be reasonable PHP script limits, because it might take some time to execute it.


    Warnung: I could only do a rudimentary test run; too many data and lacking your users / posts. Better try it first in your test / backup installation...
