I need a little (or maybe a lot) or help here. I'm working on a new portal site. One of the features of the site is a Usenet archive of the news groups related to the subject of the portal (gardening). I'm using vBulletin to connect to a news server and import the postings into the forum. This works great for the text groups. I also want to import some of the binary news groups to archive. I can download the postings, but instead of showing up as photos in vBulletin, the post just shows up as a lot of text. This is because the news groups use uuencoding, and vBulletin will only display MIME. Is there any way I can convert these downloads so that vBulletin can post them correctly?
I do not know much about vBulletin but if you are trying to convert a part of message from uuencoded to MIME that should not be too much of problem. There is a nice function in user comments at http://www.php.net/base64-decode
