Hello,

I've been tasked with the migration of an IPB 1.3 board to a newer version and host. We purchased an IPB 3.4.7 only to realize that they have changed templates/skinning to a way that we can't modify it ourselves. So we are going to convert to mybb 1.8.1. I have successfully merged the forums.

   Detailed description of your problem, including steps to reproduce if necessary:

 My problem is that All of the html from the old site (http://alacritis.east-of-paradise.com/in...opic=10951)
will not work on the merged site (http://alacritis.org/alamybb/showthread.php?tid=1785)

  Forum system you converted from
IPB 3.4.7



What I've tried:

I've tried using an HTML in post plugin

I've tried using a sql query to set allowhtml column in the forum table to 1 (which should enable html in all forums). It seems that all of my previous html posts are not recognized. New posts made with the mybb 1.8.1 software allow for some of the code to be displayed (as you can see here when I was testing http://alacritis.org/alamybb/showthread.php?tid=11325)


I really need to get those HTML tables working. So If anyone could help I would be very grateful.

MyBB doesn't have BBCodes for most of the codes you were using (eg background). The main thing I've noticed that needs to be fixed is the <center> tag. However setting allow_html to 1 should normally work if you want to enable HTML. Have you tried to recache the "forums" cache after you run your query?

ill give it a try

Ok, forums 200.68 KB Rebuild Cache went there and tried. No results. So do I need to make entries into the mycode, for each of the html codes?

That'd probably be the easiest way, yes. Not sure why the parser doesn't parse your HTML though... (tags like iframe and script are removed for security but div should be allowed afaik)

After going back and looking the recache did fix some of the tables, just not the specific ones I was looking at for testing purposes. Just my luck lol. I will have to look into it more tonight. Also, another person I'm working on the site with may have found an exploit, I'll keep you informed.

Ok well as I said earlier. It is how they formatted their tables.

<div style="background-image:url()"> breaks the table where as <table image=""> doesn't

Now should i fix this using MyCode or should I figure out a sql query to update the post table to replace those tables that are throwing an issue?

Any Help would be awesome.

Also CSS tables don't seem to work either? Is there a way to enable those?
