I am wanting to start with a fresh install on my sandbox forum and was just wondering if I can selectively export some of the work I have done on creating the original and then furthermore reusing it on a new license or even more.

Also what are my options to import a vb 4.22 forum and or merge parts of another xenforo package?
the vb forum has 100k post and a several of the more common mods. but still uses the default skin.

You can export a style, language, and some other bits, but you can't export the node tree. It would need to be recreated.

You can use the importer to import data into an existing forum. Always take a backup before you attempt the import though!

Thanks Mike, I suppose it would be best to create a sterile node tree once and then import it into each new site and then customize it to that application. Thank you for keeping Xenforo simple and intuitive and true to its forum roots.
