Importing threads from a database?

Post by tribalismo » Sun Jul 22, 2007 5:21 pm

Im wondering if it's possible to "import"/create threads from a .txt or .xls or acces file?
In that case every line would have to be the thread title.

Is that possible?

this might help

insert_post API function


the Import Tools mod uses a csv file for source of new users. A combination of the two would probably work for running new posts into the database.

This should probably be moved to one of the MOD forums.

using any control-panel install/update is like shooting yourself in the foot. It won't kill you, but you're really going to hobble around until it heals.
Using the wrong tools (Front Page, DreamWeaver) gives the same results
