After merge I cannot find posts and threads - spacecadet - 2020-01-24

I am trying to bring vBulletin 4 forum into MyBB.
The MyBB version is 1.8 and the merge version is the latest.
All went fine with the merge but when I go to the new MyBB forum there is nothing there in the forums except the titles.
I get this message when I click any of the forum titles:

Sorry, but the forum you are currently viewing does not contain any child forums.

I do have all my private messages.
Not sure where everything else has gone and would appreciate some experienced help with this as I'm pretty much a newbie at this.

Okay, doing admin CP> Forums and Posts> Manage Forums then changing from categories to forums will get it listed as a forum. Choosing the default MyBB 'My Forum as a parent will get the posts. Phew!

But I can see some of the posts have things like this:

[h=1]The Campaign to Exterminate Muslims - by Chris Hedges[/h]

and this

“If iat the beginning and end of some sentences ”

and this

[INDENT][INDENT]

I'm sure it is a setting somewhere but not sure what it is or where to find it.

for the special characters like â€
can you check character encoding used for posts & database collation in vBulletin ..

Reg. BBcodes appearing like [INDENT]
for the vBulletin BBcodes try to add equalent MyBB MyCodes
or use SQL queries to remove those non-existing BBcodes

eg. SQL query
UPDATE `mybb_posts` SET `message` = REPLACE (`message`, '[INDENT]', '') WHERE `message` LIKE '%[INDENT]%';


characters like †in posts can be also removed by using SQL query like above ..

[common sql queries guidance]

I got this error when I tried to run that code.

#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MariaDB server version for the right syntax to use near ''[INDENT]''') FROM mybb_posts WHERE message LIKE '%[INDENT]%'' at line 1


RE: After merge I cannot find posts and threads - .m. - 2020-01-24

hmm., please try :
UPDATE `mybb_posts` SET `message` = REPLACE (`message`, '[INDENT]', '') WHERE `message` LIKE '%[[]INDENT]%';

I got a green tick and a message saying zero rows affected.

The stray 'Indent' things are still in place


RE: After merge I cannot find posts and threads - .m. - 2020-01-24

^ strange. anyway, with [indent] tag do you also have its closing tag [/indent] in posts ?

Yes

There seems to be issues with these things too. The videos are the same.

President Bashar al-Assad of Syria must not recklessly attack Idlib Province. The Russians and Iranians would be making a grave humanitarian mistake to take part in this potential human tragedy. Hundreds of thousands of people could be killed. Don’t let that happen!

okay. try installing ABP Tabulation and Indentation plugin & check if indent tags get parsed ...

btw, have you also tried SQL queries to remove characters like â€
