combining boards?

Post by ghostrider » Tue Aug 05, 2003 11:35 pm

Say I have 2 seperate phpbb board systems... is there a way to combine both boards into one board without have a postid/forumid catastrophe. I don't know if there's a script available for this type of transition... but if there is, can someone point me in the right direction? thnx. :)

maybe theres a way to combined the databases, but if u tried cahngin the script and shit then u would need to make sure the forums for both boards are dif names(atleast the cataglories) and then if u get it, ud need to move the corrisponding threads to be in the same forum...

but i have no sure idea of how exactly to do it..

Both boards share the same DB. We originally did this to have 2 seperate boards ie. Forums and Dairies. Kind-of-a subforum but not. I believe this will be solved in the next release of phpbb.

I would like to transfer the diary section onto the forum section. Doing so will create 2 of the same postid/forumid...

I think I would need a script that would take the last id from the forum section and assign that id+1 to the first post of the diary section and continue until all diary posts were reassigned.
