  • Import only one forum from PHPBB3 to VB4XX

    There's one forum on our old PHPBB3 with 33 threads which didnt import properly to our VB. Is it possible to just import those threads and not run the import of the entire database?

    If it's only possible to import ALL threads from the PHPBB database, would it be possible for us to delete every thread other than those 33 then run the import and it'll just add those into the existing VB database?

    Incremental imports are not supported, and an idea like this normally wouldn't work very well. But because an entire forum was not imported, and because ImpEx can automatically merge imported users by email address, everything should come together nicely. Just delete all other forums except for the one you want to import. Then run through all of the ImpEx modules again.

    Be sure to close out your previous import session in ImpEx before running the import again, otherwise ImpEx will delete the previously imported records when you try to run the modules again. If the ImpEx page starts by allowing you to choose a source system then you are good to go. But if it starts by showing you the import modules from the previous import then you need to click the "database cleanup & restart" link at the top of the page to delete the session, after which it will let you choose a source system for the second import. Backups are advisable.
