    vB has a default feature 'merge users' where two accounts can get merged. Threads and PM, etc will then be updated and the source account will get deleted.

    Account management is quite advanced.
    Oh ok. That's awesome to know. Cheers for that Floris.

        Not yet, I am going to do it in the next couple of days. Once I have got everything, you will be the first to know.

            VB team, you should warn O.P. that they have to ask ALL members to reset password "manually", this means password is NOT converted

              Mate I have told my members that they have to register with a new account..... So I am not worrying about their old accounts.

                I found out that my board isn't actually transferable through impex because it is hosted by forumer. So instead of trying to transfer it across I may as well start a fresh one as there are only a few posts on the old board.

                  Meaning you don't have access to the source data ?
                  I wrote ImpEx.

                    I doubt it. Forumer is similar to InvisionFree; remotely hosted. They may allow database access for a fee, but in the brief time I was with Forumer many years ago, they never did.

                      No I have access to the source data. I can get the script but impex won't do the transfer.

                        is it possible to change hash format of vb in php files i.e md5(md5($pass).$salt) to that of ipb hash format i.e md5(md5($salt).md5($pass)) ........??
                        or using "or" statement so future passwords save in orginal vb format ??

                        Thanks in Advance.

                          I don't know if that is feasible or not, but since that requires custom coding it would not be something we could officially support.
