    Migrating or Transferring Forum structure

    Hi All. First Post. Go easy on me! :-)
    I've google and searched here for this to no avail.

    I've created a "development" instance of my new forum and created all of my forums/subforums etc. in there. I've also worked out my theme that I'll be using etc.
    Now I'm ready to "go live"

    So I installed the vB in my production directory and would like to export the structure that I set up in Dev to the new instance. I exported the entire database thinking that would do it but I see in some of the sql data that the path to my "Dev" instance in there. I could do a search/replace but I think there may be other stuff that would mess me up by importing my Dev database copy into my Production DB.

    So, is there a way to just export the forum structure and import it into my new one?
    I can easily transfer my Theme over and any other stuff, it's just the Forum structure that I don't want to have to do manually... It's quite a long(deep) & nested forum.

    Thanks in advance,
