  • Using Impex to import 1 forum only

    Is it possible to use Impex to import a single forum (including sub-forums) from one site to another?

    I have a site that has about 20 forums, and I want to import 1 of those to a different site. I know I could import everything and delete the ones I don't need, but that seems like alot of extra work. I do not need to import the users, but I can.

    If this is not possible, is there another way to do this?

    PS: The sites are on the same server and the databases are on the same server.

    The only way to do this would be to remove the posts and forums you don't want prior to the import.

      So either do that or import everything and delete what I don't want?

      I can't do that because I need the current stuff on both sites, I just want to move one forum.

        Yes, you either take a copy and prune it before importing, or you import everything and remove what you don't want.
