    You guys should clean this up and make a nice GUI with some options like that. It would be very useful for some people. Being able to choose what to replace, in which forum(s) would definitely be a nice utility. It's not far from that, if someone would just finish it, right? I know there were similar hacks for earlier versions.

    There's no such function, you'd have to manually adjust the cleaner.php file to limit it to a specific forum.
    You might receive help with this on www.vbulletin.org

    Make cleaner.php apply to only one forumid?

    Is there some way to make cleaner only apply to one forum id? I need to remove all the url tags, but only in one forum. Surely this can be done? Mucho gracias to the one who knows how.

    Nope, I've solved all the problems in this thread. You can del it. If I come up with any new questions, I'll start a fresh thread. (after searching, of course)

    Well, when someone has already explained a problem completely, it's usually the proper place to post about that same issue, is it not? Otherwise, I'd just have to retype everything he just typed above. Seems kind of goofy. Most forums operate on the concept that if there is a thread that already is discussing the topic you want to post about, it's better to use the existing thread than to create a new (and almost duplicate) thread. When I do a search and find someone that has/had the exact same problem, it seems only normal to post in that thread. But ok.

    This thread is the collection of the others you've started; I don't think that would be wise if you still have questions.

    Because I have asked you to keep to your own thread so support and I can follow the issue and respond accordingly, hence why I merged your six threads into one, as they are issues with the same import, keeps all the information needed in one place.

    ImpEx says it imports from a database, not by parsing a SQL file that is designed to be used to restore a database.

    I recommend you stick to your own thread and keep everything here.

    No it isn't, ImpEx imports from a database not a SQL backup file, you will have to restore the database.

    Also stick to one and your own thread.

    It puts any users from any custom group into Registered users, including mods, supermods, admins, and any other groups.

    Sorry, I don't understand what you mean:

    "if I delete any group besides Registered, I have to reconfigure any other groups, such as mods?"

    Please explain.

    I see. So basically, if I delete any group besides Registered, I have to reconfigure any other groups, such as mods?
