    Hello I have changed my forum topic and i have made a backup from the old one. I started this new one from scratch. Is it possible to take the old messages and put them in one single forum on the new forums. I have a sql backup but i'm afraid that when i import evrything it will be gone...
    Old messages are also from a xenforo forum.

    It's not possible to merge two XenForo forums directly.

    The only way is to export one of the forums to vBulletin or IPB and then import it to the other XenForo forum.

    Couldn't you get a friend to do that for you who you trust a lot?

    The only thing I can think of is asking someone who is very trustworthy from here to take the job on for you although they may charge.

    And when you import, can you put all the messages to one single forum?

    I dont think you can during the import but afterwards you can if you do it manually.

    I hope someone makes an XF to XF importer without requiring us to pay for another script just to import.

    PS.. vb doesn't have an xf importer..

    I still can't believe there is no solution for importing one xf board into another. Has anyone found a solution?
