  • Need help with thread format for import

    I'm trying to write a script to import my forum's old posts from eesite to vBulletin 1.1.6. I've been looking at the thread table and I'm having a hard time understanding the format. It seems as if all the messages are appended to the same field, with only a return separating them, and I'm wondering if there's something I'm missing, or how does vBulletin know when one message ends and the next begins? I need a better understanding of the format of the content in the database so I can import the old posts.

    Anyone's help would be much appreciated!

    Figured it out!

    I figured out that I was looking at the wrong table. I understand the database format now and I was able to hack together a script to import the data from my old site.
