In progress Backups or something

Post by Hustleboy on August 12th 2013, 2:46 pm

Hey guy's. Well this is kinda stupid.

I build a phpBB3 theme which took a lot of css editting and the html sources.
I made it local using the original phpBB3
I was building it for my dad, so today we wanted to import it.
Apparently you can't import phpBB3 custom skins into forumotion phpBB3.

Is there away to export all of the users/posts he has now on his forum to a original copy of phpBB3 so we can actually use it ?
Because it kinda stinks if 900+ people need to re-register and lose some important posts.

Sorry you can't transfer posts or anything like that with Forumotion as you don't have access to the Forumotion Database.

Well is there nothing i can do ?
It kinda sucks that i will have to make 20.000 people re-register.
Is it also not possible to get the user database where for safety all passwords get auto resetted. And then the users get an email that they have to change it ?

As Derri mentioned above, no its not possible I am sorry about this, but those are your only options, re-register all of your members. Start all fresh.

What is this actually ?

I have seen many people saying it works perfectly.

Is it allowed to use such a thing ?

While Forumotion does use PHPBB software we are a forum hosting service and therefore we don't offer all the functions of the phpbb community. Essentially FM is our own brand.
