Solved Copying messages to a new forum

Post by jayjay1961 on August 14th 2014, 3:29 pm

Dear All

I have a lot of messages in my current forum: http://BerjayaGST.forumms.netand would like to copy all the messages to a new forum: http://MalaysiaGST.forumms.net. Then, I will maintain the 2 forums separately.

How can I do it?

Hello,

Please could you tell me if I'm correct.

Are you wanting to copy all of your boards/categories?

Thanks, AngelaHolmes for your prompt reply.

Yes, everything... boards, categories and all the posts, excluding the members.

Hello,

I've spent most of the hours searching for your request and there seems to be nothing, so as APE says this is not possible.

But you could suggest a icon for this in the administrator panel but they could be a counter argument as this could cause copyright.

So I'm very sorry but this is not possible, I think this question has been asked before and the answer was it is not possible.

Hi,

To do something like this on a forum, you would need access to the forum database. Forumotion does not allow users the forum database, so it is not possible.

You will have to manually copy and paste the posts from one forum to the other. For the design, you will have to manually change it yourself.
