  • Importing threads

    I posted this on .org as well, maybe someone her has some suggestions:

    I have an existing installation in which I want to import approximately 300 articles into a new forum.

    I want each one of the articles to be treated as an individual closed thread in a specific forum.

    The basic information I have in a csv file is:

    Title (Article Title)
    Body (Article Body)
    Date (Original Date of Article ie: 12/20/2004)
    Author (Existing Forum Member id)

    I'm curious if there is a tool available to do something like this or if I actually have to perform specific sql queries with phpMyAdmin or similar application. If I have to use phpMyAdmin, what information other than the above four fields do I include in the insert query? I tried to insert one article but it did not show up on any of my forum...

    Any advice on how I can proceed would be appreciated
