In progress Transferring Threads

Post by electricsymphony on January 3rd 2013, 9:50 pm

So, I'm an admin on a forummotions site--a 'The Vampire Diaries' discussion forum--but due to recent events that have transpired with our members, it has become inevitable that we need to move our role play section outside of the main site and into its own seperate forum. I've already registered a forum with jcink for this purpose and have done quite a bit in getting it ready for use. My problem comes, however, with the 15,000 posts and 23 threads within the role play board on forummotions that have already been logged over the course of the last six months. I'd really like to be able to somehow transfer those threads/posts over to the new jcink site in a way that doesn't require me manually copy and pasting every single page, which could potentially take a very long time.

Now I know there are no ways to transfer entire sites onto a different server, I understand that and I am not asking for that. However, if anyone does have any ideas to make this transfer less of a monumental and tedious job, I'd really appreciate the help. Very Happy

Sorry you can not have access to the database to transfer posts, members, etc. You will have to manually copy and paste them to your new forum.
