    They say that their service is free. with free support.... But I will take on board what you are saying.

    Oh and they are so unreliable when it comes to answering emails....

    Alternatives is to stay there using that forum with horrible templates and ordinary servers.

    I heard Forumer charges $$ for backups. I might be wrong though.

    No I didn't get that as it was one that you could do sign up for online.

  • Trying to import IPB that is hosted by Forumer.com

    Just asking a simple question here.

    Why can't we import our own forums from forumer.com?

    I have got one (IPB) there but looked in the Impex file to see if it was able to be imported but couldn't find one for forumer forums.
widgetinstance 262 (Related Topics) skipped due to lack of content & hide_module_if_empty option.
