  • Transfer Data From Tikiwiki

    Hello all,

    Currently I have a TikiWiki forum and I'm interested in switching to vBulletin. The only problem is, I don't want to lose all of my user info/post info. Is there a way to migrate the data over to vBulletin so I don't have to recreate all the users?

    Thanks.

    We currently do not have an importer for your system. You could do a CSV based user import but you would lose your post information.

    Here is the information on our ImpEx import system:
    Here is the status of the current import scripts vBulletin supports:

      By CSV user import I could basically import all of my user info to the vBulletin board? Do you know where I could find out more information on this?

        It would import username, email address and password (as long as its not encrypted).

          Thanks so much. One last thing: They are encrypted, so what should I do in order to decrypt them?

            That depends on how you encrypted them. If they can be decrypted you would have to do that first, probably with some sort of script.
