  • Merging users from Invisionfree to my current VB Forum?

    Hi,

    I am merging my forum with a previous rival site, and we want to Transfer the users from the other forum, which is an Invisionfree forum, over to my current Vbulletin forum.

    We do not need to transfer over any posts, just the users, and their profile etc.

    can this be done.

    I know it can be done if i was starting a new forum, but unsure how it works on a forum with over 700 users?

    Or would i have to transfer all user details over Manually?

    Thanks
    Derek

    Yes, we have an importer for Invisionfree. You'd use the IPB 1.3 one:

      Thanks steve, so will this allow me to just transfer the users from the invision forum, without affecting the users i currently have on my VB forum?

      Thanks

            Invision free gives you all the INSERT SQL statements, you will still need a table structure to load that into :
