Ringnews24 Forum Help

I spoke online to Lelani via the online help, she was very helpful.

I am going to purchase VBulletin soon, I have an old forum and I am going to send it to the my new VBulletin forum. Lelani said I can do this via software called 'impex'

My question today is, can I import 2 old forums to the new forum? My friends forum is closing and wanted to know my options.

I was wanting to ask some module questions in 'vB4 General Discussions' but it says I don't have access. Can I leave my questions here? or do they need to go in General discussions?

You can't ask support related questions at all until you have a license.

Pre-sales questions can be asked here.

Yes you can use Impex twice (or more)- but you must completely finish with the first import before you can start a second.

Thanks for the reply BirdoPrey5, how does Impex work if a user has an account on both forum imports ? (if im importing more than one forum)

you can tell the script to merge the existing accounts which have the same email adress and when doing the import process, you can associate different accounts to be merged... that helps merge multiple accounts in many situations.
