Hi. I am moving from Vbulletin to bbpress and want to use mediapress as my image solution
I have approx 15k albums created by users in vbulletin and need to find a way to move these across to mediapress with the correct users associated with it.
Anyone have any ideas or have done this before and have any recommendations?
I am not sure what import procedures mediapress has?

Thank you for posting.
I am sorry but we don’t have support for such migration at the moment.
If you are familiar with WordPress coding, I can point in the direction to create the galleries and importing media using code. I can supply for WordPress side of the code but i lack familiarity with vbulletin and may not be of much help there.
PS: MediaPress media are just normal WordPress media with a few meta and parent gallery id. So if there is a script to import vbulletin Media to WordPress media, we may use it.

If you can advise how to add new images into the mediapress tables / folder etc i think i ahve a way to export from vbulletin
although im still figuring out the way to map the users properly from one to another and be able to give them the correct albums

Thank you for the update. It’s good to know.
MediaPress stores the media as WordPress attachment(with some extra meta data and term assignment).
You can use mpp_add_media to add a media to the gallery. Please see the example here for the syntax
Also, you can add new gallery using mpp_create gallery. Here is an example to show , how to add gallery automatically.
Please do check and let me know if you need any help.

We have a basic importer working. One issue we are seeing is the activity log from buddypress is putting the admin user (as we are importing the images using a admin page as a ful,l plugin) as the activity
so the actual user does have their album added but the activity log shows the admin user as having added it.
this is just the mpp_create gallery function we have not added any images yet but assume it will probably behave in a similar way.

That is a wonderful news. I am very happy to know that you are able to import.
To stop the activity from getting created, please visit MediaPress->Settings->BuddyPress and disable the automatic activity creation for new media/new gallery while you are importing. It will fix the issue.
Hope it helps.
