    Do the mods.
    Back up the modded board.
    Do an import.
    See how if goes.

    If its good set a date and then do it again for real from the live set to the modded board back up.

    If not, then go with what Floris advises.

    I was afraid of that. I want to add 15+ mods and that's going to take some time. I wanted to only be down for a short time while I did the import. If I need to shut down the live board, import and then do all the mods, I will likely be down a couple of days.

    Second import? I think impex has an option to clear impex and start again.

    Clarifications before going live

    I want to let everyone know that my import from phpBB2 v. 2.0.11 went very well. I want to thank Jerry and Floris for their valuable help with minor clarifications.

    Before I do the "real" import I want to clarify some points:

    1. I want to make about 15 mods to VB 3.0.3 BEFORE doing the final import. Can I do this or will the import process delete or impact the mods. For example, I want to add VBA CMPS, Gallery, Arcade, etc... I'd prefer to have all this done before going live rather than after.

    2. Do I have to do anything now that I'm going to do a second import or will ImpEx do everything for me?

    Thanks for your help.
