    There is no easy way to do exactly what you want. I would suggest backing up the style, and then upgrade the main website, then reapply your hacks and addons.

    How do I port only the posts over?

    I'm upgrading vb from 3.6.8 to 3.8.1

    I have tried it first with a test bed, using database backup and installed 3.8.1.

    Everything worked out smoothly. I went ahead and put in all the modifications, coded a new style from scratch and installed loads of mods and addons. (all on the test bed took about 1 week)

    Now my question is, how do I port all my work on the test bed to the live site? I wanta keep all my modifications intact while still have the latest posts, user info of the live site. (since my posts and latest registered users on the test bed is now 1 week behind the live site)

    Please let me know if there's certain tables in the DB I can port over, cause I really can't afford to reinstall all my mods and settings again on the live site since it would take up to a week.

    Thanks for reading this.
