Importing only posts from older forum using MySQL

Post by arnyeinstein » Tue Oct 04, 2016 8:00 am

Hi
I have posts from an earlier mailing list and want to import them into my phpbb 3.1.9 forum using sql-inserts.

My idea: Insert the posts using my id and all further information not related to the imported post (like enable_bbcode, etc.) into one specific forum ("Archive") into the table phpbb_posts.

My questions:
- Would this work, e.g, is it a good idea.
- What should I put in the field bb_codeuid, or could I just leave it empty?

Thanks
Renger
