  • Import a single UBB forum from wayback into VB

    I have this one very large (35k posts) forum from wayback when Nachos was a UBB site, and it would be really groovy to surprise some of my longterm users with a blast from the past. Some of these posts go back to 1998.

    Does anyone know, or could give SQL statement construction advice on how I might go about importing this data into VB 3.0.3?

    Depending on what version of UBB this is, you may be able to imprt into vB 2.3.0 using one of the import scripts in the Members Area.

      I apreciate the response. I am familar with the import scripts, but I'm under the impression that they are all or nothing affairs, with no facilities for importing single posts or forums. At least they were when I did the initial port from UBB back in 2001.

      I'm looking for a outside the box type solution here. I rather doubt a formal scripts exists for this sort of situation.

        Sorry I misunderstood your question, You're right, there' s on way to import a single post. There may or may not be a an option to import a specific forum. It doesn't cost you anything to download the script and try it.
