  • Inputting old data...

    I have made up my mind and I will be porting all of my news archives (which are in static form) to be input in the vB framework.

    So, in order for this to happen, I thought about making some subforums for the corresponding years and inputting the static data into vB. All this will correspond to myvBindex.

    Only problem is that I don't know how to do this. Anybody know how I can input data that can be old as 1998-1999? I know that I have to input it manually, maybe as far as editing tables, and stuff...

    Any help would be appreciated.

    This would require modifying the data manually in the database.

    I'd just make the new threads and then manually modify the postdates in the table.
    I wouldn't know how to do that though - you probably are required to convert to a unix timestamp or something. Maybe the author of vbmyindex could help you tweak his work to include a 'post as if it was [date drop down]'.

      Thanks for your help...I tried posting this over at the vbindex forum.

      Anyone else who can help out with some ideas for this?
