Hello,

I love CB specially the add-ons, anyway the
reason I am writing is because I have updated
Joomla and did an Migration also included CB.


Glad you like our community builder :)

The problem is all the avatars from
the users are gone, all field entry's
like Guestbook, Photogallery, Name, etc..
are gone, the Customize Tab how users have
changed there profiles too there wishes
are also gone.


Yes migrations to other sites or databases are tricky and should be done carefully in a test environment and by people with some real experience.

How do I get them back to the new database
from the old so users can enjoy my site
again because now I have my site who is
getting populair by the day offline for the
last 2 days.

I really need help with this,

Thanks in advanced.


Since it sounds like you are in a hurry, the best thing to do is to get professional help and not depend on free best effort community support.

Lessons learned what to do on big upgrades like yours:

1. make backups site/db
2. copy/restore it in a subfolder / testserver / localhost
3. try the upgrade/migration on the testsite
4. take notes of the upgrade process
5. if everything is working do it on the live site :)

Regarding your problem:
The migrator script only copies your joomla install and if a cb migrator script is available it may only migrates the core of CB tables - AFAIK. You may want to dump missing tables with phpmyadmin and import them into your new testsite.

Did, aint working (I dont want too start all over
the subfolder because it cointaince some changes
only the fields, avatars, photoalbum (Nant's), guestbook, and Customize tab aint copying over.)

Think it is only need to be done single handed but
I dont know wich SQL entry I need too put in
to the database.

Only thing I am getting is responsing but not

The migration is not trivial and nobody can descibe it in a few lines. Time is short as you know.

The CB update is a step by step guide in the README.

If you resist to try and error on an testsite I can not help you. You have basically two choices:
.read, learn, try how to fix that
.pay somebody to fix that

greets and good luck
