I would like to think that ignoring pg_restore's whining would get
you most of the way there.

So I tried again: The long answer is no, the table with the tsvector did not get created, and thus, not copied:

pg_restore: [archiver (db)] could not execute query: ERROR: type "tsvector" is only a shell
LINE 11:     vectors tsvector
     Command was: CREATE TABLE times (

Hmph, that's annoying.  I suppose the problem is that the script has
just set the search path to "public, pg_catalog", and so the failed
shell tsvector type in public is found in preference to the one in

What you could probably do as a workaround for testing is to create a
dummy type entry to block the creation of the shell type, say

        create domain public.tsvector as pg_catalog.tsvector;

and then run pg_restore.  This seems pretty ugly though ... anyone
have a better idea?

(Knew we should have insisted on seeing a migration plan sooner.
Oh well.)

I have the sql script to create the tables (I was going to pg_dump --schema-only and edit, but there is a lot of stuff in there). I just ran it to create empty tables, then did the pg_dump --data-only, and scripted it in.

Worked fine.

Changed the trigger from calling tsearch2 to tsvector_update_trigger.

Then in my php I changed:
to_tsquery('default', '$fulltext')

and renamed rank to ts_rank, and my site (well, the test site) is happy on 8.3.
