  • How can I import from plain text?

    I have files of text that I want to import into vBulletin as posts. I don't want to publish such posts using copy and paste. I want, for example, to convert the text into SQL statements and directly import them into the database. In another way, my question is as follows:

    If I already have a thread and only want to add posts to it directly using SQL statements, then how to format the SQL statement, so that it works as if I am posting the messages directly from vBulletin?

    Thanks for any help.

    There is no plain text import script for impex (yet), so this would require custom code, try asking over at

    You could also send a privmsg to the developer Jerry - maybe he could see if it would be easy to make a small import script for it. (But that is not a promise).
