  • Transfer of forum to vb

    I have been thinking about having vbulletin as my forum software for a while now as I like the ease of use and feel m users will get more out of it. However, is it easy to transfer all my users and posts over? I am not bothered about all the little tweaks etc that I have, just the bulk of the forum.
    Thanks in advance

    The ability to transfer to vBulletin depends what forum script you are currently using. You can view a list of supported systems here: www.vbulletin.com/go/impex

          Those are the requirements for the server. If you're still talking about transferring from another forum script, it's kinda hard to help you without knowing what you want to transfer from.

              You can use a program called Impex which will allow you to transfer your phpbb3 forum to vBulletin.

              EDIT: I have put in the link for you.
