Solved Is it possible to import a forum from atfreeforums.com?

Post by clynnmax on May 4th 2009, 12:04 am

I am taking over a forum that is currently hosted at atfreeforums.com.
I would like to merge it with my forum here at forumotion.
Is it possible to import a forum from another host?
Thanks for any/all advice.

Lynn

PS: If this is in the wrong place please accept my apologies. I did not know where to post such a question.

Does atfreeforums.com let you have access to your CSS?

You know since it is free, I am not sure. I will go check now.

If it makes any difference it is powered by phpBB.

Alright, once you find out and it does alllow you access to your CSS, create a random forum (you don't have to add anything to it at all) and once you create it and log-in :
  1. Administration Panel
  2. Display tab
  3. Pictures and Colors -- Colors
  4. CSS Stylesheet mini-tab; erase the current CSS, and then add your CSS code from your forum at atfreeforums.com. Save
  5. Finally, view your test forum's index page and if it looks like your old forum, then you're all good. If it works, then you place your CSS code into your main forum's CSS stylesheet just like you did with your test forum.



Hence this might not work, but it's worth a shot.
