Forums Merging?

Post by TheKidBuu! » Fri Nov 28, 2008 10:34 pm

Hello to evryone reading this. I am having some thoughts about fusing phpBB forum with another one. Is this even possible, even tho it could be great pain in the ass? To move sections, topics and postings from one forum to another, with users aswell?

It is a mess, especially if you have members in common between them, with different user numbers. There is a topic around here on merging forums, which discusses this, and I think it even has links to a script to help out. Searching for "merging" should come up with it, because it is part of the subject.
