Can a Moderator or Administrator post as another member?

Post by Rob-Rah »

I would like to transfer over to phpBB from elsewhere and want to transfer the postings on my old forum. I can't get at them as a database to import, and all I can do is cut and paste raw text. Members are going to rejoin phpBB, but they won't want to repost all their posts themselves - and the timing of the posts will get out of order too.

Can I paste the postings under the pseudonyms of the members who they belong to? And can I post with an editable "time/date of posting"?

Thanks.

So would I be looking for an SQL editor instead and try to dump data into the new database that way? Or is the table structure too complex to handle it?
