Solved Is it possible to transfer the design and customization from one forum to another

Post by Unlosing on October 9th 2016, 7:01 am

I was wondering if it was possible to transfer the design/customization and settings of one forumotion page to another.

This forum page (http://cubiccastles.forumtl.com/forum) is no longer in use and that game company has a new forum page. I asked the developer if I could have it since it is no longer in use. Would it be possible to transfer all the settings/customization to this forum (http://gamebusters.forumotion.com/) Here is the message he sent me for more details.

"Well honestly I'd just give it to you if I could, but we are keeping it around for the archive. So... Really what you want is the customizations to the page that Horus did? I wonder if there's a way to transfer those to a new forumotion account. Maybe write them and ask if that's possible (ie transfer the customizations but without the actual post content) and then we could give permission or something like that."

Is there anything you guys could do?

Hey, there

Are you basically asking if you can copy the theme and send it to another forum? Not the data inside, correct (posts, topics, categories, etc.) ?

Yes, the theme and settings but not the data such as users, posts, topics, etc.

You can via exporting the theme and then importing it onto your own forum.

Admin Panel --> Display --> Themes Management --> Export your Skin --> (Current Skin: Whole Style)

Ok, so I would contact the admin of the forum I want the theme from then ask them to export it?

Basically, yes, but they would have to be able to send you the saved file somehow. Maybe even on an email if they can.
