  • converting from IPB then merging with another forum

    Greetings,

    My company recently merged with another company (as often happens these days) Both companies have user forums. My company forums are hosted on IPB while the other company hosts on VB. Since I believe that VB is the supoerio product I want to convert my copmany boards into VB format and then merge them with the other set of boards.

    I know that the conversion tool exists, but I don't know where. Additionally, I have not found any reference to others converting and then merging boards. Does this pose a problem for me or my users? My primary concern is that when I import the converted data, it will somehow overwrite the existing data. Can anyone alleviate my concerns?

    Thanks,

    Tom E.

    There are scripts for both processes. See the impex forum: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=92

      I converted my IPB 2.03 to vBulletin in early February.
      Then in March I merged my database with another vBulletin database.
      On both occasions the Impex system worked perfectly....and very easy to use too.
      You'll have no problems using it.
