  • convert from IPB to vb, then merge with existing vb board

    is it possible to convert an IPB v2.1.7 to VB and then merge with a different vb forum?

    okay. i have one forum running on ipb 2.17 and another forum on vb360.
    i want to convert the ipb to vb and then merge with the already existing vb board.

    is it possible?
    how do i go about doing this?
    wha'ts the correct procedure for it?

    Yes, it's possible. Please view the multiple import instructions here:

      will the users from IPB have to change their password manually or they will be able login in the new VB forum using the same password?

      also, any estimate of accuracy of the import?
      and will it auto merge forums if they happen to share the same forum name or it will create different ones?

      finally, if you could provide some more info/links/tips on the merging part, would be great.

      thanks.

        Since IPB2 passwords are encrypted, they cannot be imported. Your users will need to reset their passwords after the import. You can read more about this here:

        What do you mean? I don't understand.

        It will create new forums which you can merge or rename later if you want.

        All I can point you to is the documentation:
