    Thanks, that's very helpful.

    I'd still really welcome any thoughts on the import to Discus. For instance, I read in an old thread that the importer didn't support sub-forums. Is that still the case? Do I need to move messages to a top-level forum to get them imported?

    The only importer we have for Discuss is the file based one, so you would need to convert back.

    Converting from Discus 4 - should it be MySql or text?

    Hi,

    I have a discus 4.00.7 board currently storing data in flat file, text format.

    It is breaking a lot...

    But if I convert it to mySql (to make it break less), can I still upgrade to vBulletin later on, or will I need to convert it back?

    If anyone has experience, tips etc on converting Discus to vBulletin with the latest version of Impex, I would love to hear them. I've followed the link to the manual, and I expect things'll be clearer once I have VB installed, but I would love some step-by-step instructions.

    thanks for any help!
    Hilary
