How to move the contents of a phpbb forum to my forumotion forum?

Post by Yada on June 18th 2013, 11:41 pm

Hello. I have a domain and there is a forum there which is very complicated for me to manage. I want to go back to my old forum and link it up to my site so people will start posting again.. However, I would like to move the contents (if not the members) of this phpbb forum to my previous forumotion forum.. Is it possible to do that?

Thank you for your time to read this...

There is no way to transfer data from another site to forumotion the same way you can not transfer data from forumotion to another site. Forumotion do not offer this at this time. It has been suggested many times. But most free hosting do not offer any data transfers.

All i can suggest is that you make an announcement that you are moving to a new site, and to leave your forum you have open now for like a month or so to allow members to copy any of their post over to your new forum.
