  • Merging two active forums together?

    Looking into merging two of the same forum types together. Both run vBulletin 3.8 software. I'm wondering how this works and/or if it is possible.
    I've search, but didn't find anything on merging two of the same forum/software. Thanks

    You got me wondering now too... is it possible to use Impex to import from one forum to the other? Or does it erase the database... only thing i could think of is to create a test forum and try it out...

      Happens all the time, it's know as a merge import :

      http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/impex_terminology

      Just the same as any other import as the target dosen't know where/what the source data is.

      Though as with any import, you have to finalize it before performing consecutive imports.
      I wrote ImpEx.

        Another Question. How can you get the links to folllow through to your new forum. Say when someone searches google? Will it redirect to the correct thread or ?
