  • Importing threads and users from only one forum in another instance

    My workgroup is learning about vBulletin's functionality by participating as moderators in an instance owned by a sister organization. They created for us a forum which closely matches our team's focus. That forum has attracted many posts in a short time. Now that we've created our own instance, we'd like to copy those posts over to that new instance; however, we want to copy only the content of a single forum, not the whole original instance. Is that possible? And since the folks who posted the threads on our sister organization's instance are not yet members of our new instance, is that a problem? Is there a way to import the users of just that one forum to the new instance? What we'd like to avoid is importing all the members of the old instance -- most would not want to be automatically included in our new instance, and they're not the kind of customer we want to draw to the new instance. (They're techies -- we're wanting genealogists.)

    Thanks,

    Michael

    You should be able to use a database backup and the ImpEx system to accomplish this.
