    Moving Select Threads from one existing Forum to another (not your typical Q's)

    here's the situation:
    two sites running vB 3.7.2, both have existing users, threads posts etc.

    Site B is a spin off of Site A
    They have separate DB's on the same server.

    Site B "shares" Site A's user tables (set it up as a view)

    originally set it up to make sure that a shared common user base could work.

    anyhow, now I need to move some threads from Site A to Site B. I very familiar with MySQL and queries etc.

    I guess the primary issue will be maintaining the threadid and postid relationships.

    just looking for any tips on how to do this the "easy" way.

    Sorry, there is no function to do this. This requires modifying the code. We cannot officially support code modifications or forums running modified code, however you can try searching or asking for help with this over at

      That you've asked in the import forum, all I can think is doing a vBulletin merge import then, pruning the source and moving what is left (being the threads you want) into the target forum.

      I'd think it would be easy, though a fair few steps.
