Moving Boards from One Forum to Another
« on: May 21, 2014, 10:51:02 AM »
I have been on these forums for about an hour now and can't really find anything close to what I am trying to do.

I have 2 forums right now, one running 1.1.12 and the other running 2.0.7. I am trying to move posts from the old forum over to the new forum and not really sure how to go about doing this without completely screwing up both forums. Close to 9000 posts and 1527 topics.

Anyone have a way to make this an easy thing for me? :)

Thank you in advance for your time.

Why are you using two forums? Can't you simply update your old forum?

Does the destination forum already have existing posts? If not, I suggest doing an upgrade on the 1.1 forum, then moving the entire thing to replace the other if that's what you want to do.

I guess that would work.
He's probably looking for some assistance.

Thanks for all the posts. We have decided to just get rid of the old forums so doing what I wanted to do is no longer going to happen.

Thanks
