    Merging several old wbb (burning board) and vbulletin forums to one vB 3.7.2

    I hope I posted my request in the right sub-forum.

    I used several different forums for my clan over the last couple of years, and I want to merge all those forums to one vbulletin 3.7.2

    The main forum we use now is a woltlab burning board 2.3.6, which according to Impex, could be imported to vbulletin.

    However I have some old forums that I would like to merge as well:
    - one vbulletin 2.2.6
    - one vbulletin 2.2.9
    - one woltlab burning board 1.1.1

    I did not find converters for those old forums. There's a user-made converter that can import the wbb 1.1.1 in an empty vbulletin 2.2.x, but even if I did that, I then would be stuck with three old vbulletin 2.2.x and one wbb 2.3.6.

    Does anyone have an idea how I can merge all these forums?

    You can import them all using ImpEx, import the wBB 1 to the vBulletin 2 and then import them all into one board using merge imports :

    Just ensure you follow the procedure for each import, removing the import id's and removing the session, then doing the next import, and so on.

    You'll likely want to merge the users on email address during the user module to remove the duplicates as well.
