[For 1.8] Thank You/Like System v3.4.2 + MyAlerts and Tapatalk support

You load it in your browser at http(s)://your-forum-domain/converter.php. It then looks in your database for the tables of the two alternative thank-you/like plugins that it knows (they are named - after the prefix defaulting to mybb_ - thx and post_likes). If it finds one or the other, then it queries the thank-yous/likes out of it and stores them into this plugin's thank-you/like table (named - again, after any prefix defaulting to mybb_ -g33k_thankyoulike_thankyoulike).

It won't work for any other tables/databases unless you add them to the script.

You need to provide some sort of access to the old database table, whether that's via connecting to it in PHP via a database API as a separate database to the MyBB one, or, as you suggest, manually importing the old table into your MyBB database, which would make things easier as you could then just use MyBB's database functions to pull rows out of it, as the converter.php script does already, e.g., see lines 16-19, and 39-42.

maybe someone can shortly explain what exactly to do, please....

Perhaps you mean table rather than field? In any case, you simply need to add another else if block to converter.php from line 59, based on one or the other of the previous blocks (16-37 and 39-58), and customised for your table and its columns. If you need more help, just let us know.

Actually, I've just realised: my description above assumes that the post IDs and user IDs of your old database have been imported as-is, so that they correspond directly to those in the MyBB database into which you've imported them. If that's not the case, then the converter.php script is not going to be adequate.
