    also ... thanks for the answer in the 2nd question
    You can just move all the threads, then delete the forum :

    To import from vBulletin3->vBulletin3 and have that happen, you must of imported, removed the id's then imported again, I'd guess.

    I would suggest restoring the original target database then doing the import again, or use the database clean up link at the top of the impex page and deleting all the imported data then trying again. Then rearrange the board as you want it.

    1. how do i dump everything from one forum to another, meaning how do i merge everything from "the lounge" with the "general discussion board". or the "vbulletin pre-sales questions" board with the "vBulletin 3 Import System" board for example?

    2. somehow everything i imported came up doubled, meaning two of each user imported, forum, user ranks etc... what does this mean and how do i correct it?

    You match the userid of the source board to the target board.

    Thats only if you want them associated though and if they have the same email address skip that module and use the auto-email merge in the import user module as that will merge the users based on email address.

    You associate users on your current vB forum with the same users on the forum you are importing. If this is a brand new installation, then there should only be one you need to associate - you.
