  • [Forum] Export Forum Threads & CMS articles into an existing Forum

    I am combining two of my existing discussion forums, into a single existing forum. How would I accomplish this?

    I want to import my old forums users, threads, and forum categories into another one of my existing forums.

    How would I accomplish this?

    Impex is what you would normally use, however there is no vB4 Suite to vB4 Suite impex yet. The devs had asked the users if anyone has some test vB4 Suite databases to test Impex out with and I'm not sure if they got many for testing.

    If I post CSS and you don't know where it goes, throw it into the additional.css template.

      So I'm clear, I should use IMPEX to transfer my forums/threads/users to my existing forum? The CMS articles I will have to manually re-create it sounds like (not that bad, only have 14 articles)

      Thanks for confirming.

        We have not released a version of Impex that will import vB4 articles into another vB4 Suite database.

          I saw that link in my customer account to download, but wasn't sure what exactly it does. What does it o exactly?
