Updating Avatars B5 -> RC1 Tutorial + Script

Postby ..::Frans::.. » 22 May 2007, 15:59

If you have updated from B5 to RC1 it is likely that you're board is missing all avatars. The next script will update the old avatars and database entries to the new layout of version RC1.

As always: BACKUP YOUR DATABASE !!!!!!

Step 1. Download the attachment & unzip it.
Step 2. Upload the content of the root directory to your site
Step 3. MAKE SURE you are in the prosilver style yourself (or copy the template file to the correct style/{STYLE}/template directory)
Step 4. Run the page from your browser by selecting http://{YOUR_SITE_URL}/avatar_convert.php
Step 5. Check the results on the page (it's doing the best possible thing it can, but not all old avatars will be converted)
Step 6. Delete the uploaded files from your board (they aren't needed anymore)

Good luck! :good:


ps: patsi, thnx for testing...;)

Frans,

Thank you for this script! :D - It worked flawlessly for me! :cool: :good: I even noticed, that in the last screen I got a message about one user correting his avatar manually, not waiting for me to fix it, that user just reupped it by him self, and I also got a message about one surplus file in the avatar folder, so everything just worked fine! :cool: :good:
