    importing pmachine to vB?

    I've got a small news site running off pmachine right now and I want to import all of the articles to a forum and the registered users to vBulletin. Anyone got an importer or is this going to be a huge pain to accomplish?

    It would all depend on how the information is stored in the first place, then the organization of it in relation to users.

    If pmachine uses a forum structure then it may be possible, though if it is just a content engine then it would be harder.

      pmachine *does* have a forum built in, but I don't use it because, quite-frankly, it's a piece of crap and that's why I want to move everything to vB. Everything is stored in MySQL, so the information is definitely available... just not sure what form it's in.

        Well you would have to understand how you would want the data organised into a forum structure to be able to import it.

          Basically I'd just want to dump all of the news into a forum as threads, and create an account for each of our registered users. What would you suggest as a solution?

            Well I would need to see the database schema, though I would guess that the user import would be very simple.

            Requests for custom coding etc are usally made at www.vbulletin.org
