  • delete duplicate posts (import)


    I'm upgrading my ubb.x board to vbulletin 2
    I already have it installed, and the db converted on my HD.

    ubb.x has an option to export only posts after day X. I was wondering if I could take my courrent local installation (from three or four days ago), and use the importer again for posts made only since my last import (making the import process a lot quicker)?

    I was thinking maybe I could make "intersecting" databases, so I get some duplicate posts, which I delete later.. Is that possible?

    to try to clarify, I meant if it'd be easy to find and delete all the duplicate posts..?

      There's a 'Remove dupe threads' function in Update Counters, but nothing for duplicate posts themselves. If the entire threads and posts are duplicated, you might want to try this. Backup your database first thugh.
