    Hello,

    Because vBulletin has not offered a CMS or Articles system of any sort, I (along with MANY Admins) have purchased and been using vBadvanced "Dynamics" article system for the past couple of years. With the launch of vB-4.0 I'm hoping to remove as many add-on products as possible, including vBa Dynamics.

    This leaves me with one very serious problem: HOW do I import a couple years worth of Articles (and replies) on my board, from vBa Dynamics, back into core vB to use with your new publishing suite? I would think that this would be a HUGE issue for a large number of Admins, who I believe are your TARGET audience, those who already use a publishing/articles system, who would likely elect to simplify their lives and use one cohesive product instead of add-ons, IF ONLY they can figure out how to get their data out of Dynamics and back into vB.

    vBa has built a nice little script for taking your business away from you, by importing vB threads to vBa Dynamics articles, however I don't know of ANYONE who has reverse engineered this process. vBa has no interest in doing this, as it will help make them obsolete in the marketplace, I'd say that the responsibility falls on vB, if you really want this sector of your client base back.

    I posted a thread in an IMPEX forum a few months ago, asking whether vB had written a script for this, and the answer was "NO". I asked over at vBa, and of course the answer was the same.

    Are you guys going to write a script to help Admins of boards currently using vBa Dynamics article system, bring the business back "home" and import those threads back into core vB?

    I think this is a great need, and I personally would really appreciate it!

    I'm excited about the new changes with vB4! I commend you all for your efforts! I'm willing to pay for the upgrade! But it is ALL irrelevant if I can't get my data back into vB!

    Thanks!
    Jeff

    Thanks Jerry. For that particular site I'd love to switch, though I'm in no hurry.

    Also I can provide sql data for Social Engine if necessary.

    When the requests for vB4 importers start coming in I'll be updating the poll stripping out everything that is there and updating with the modern systems that are being requested opposed to the old ones that are there now.

    Understand that, Jerry. It's just that there are a lot of people who use forumer.com as their host for their forums. Some of them have got 200+ members and are restricted with what they can do.
    Their main forum was upgraded to vBulletin software.

    I am referring to the forum module distributed with the DotNetNuke core, such as the forum run at dotnetnuke.com . Is that one that can be added? It appears to be at least somewhat popular.

    http://www.dotnetbb.com/ exsists.

    The usual nuke candidates aren't going to be added as there is little commonality amongst the source data I've seen, the parent forum importer can be used, i.e. phpBB2.

    Can you add DOTNETNUKE Forums to the poll? I saw it mentioned a couple pages back, and I also have need for it.

    OK, I opened a support ticket, referred it to you, and included a link to get a MyBB 1.4 database file.

    Let me know if you have any questions.
