Is there a way to merge two Xenforo Forum databases together when the following persists - Or at least merging the forum posts and moving them to the directed end locations?
Both forum structure "NodeID's" are different?
versions a slightly different say (1.1.4 to 1.2.5)
As I have tried and it does not merge over threads / posts if the structure is different. So any one have a solution? It moves over all users, profiles, profile posts, private messages, but not forum posts.
Yeah I used it but it stated only 1.2 does that means the old database which has the 1.1.4 needs to be upgraded to 1.2 before it can be merged? because It merged over users, profile posts, pms and other things such as message counts etc but not threads.
I don't think I like the word "merged." It's an import. Data is copied from one database to another.
The word "merge" can apply to user accounts though, because the import has an option to automatically merge source and destination users if their email or name matches. But everything else is just copied and is not merged with any destination content. Example... if both forums have a node of the same name then you will end up with two nodes with that name (they don't automatically combine or merge). Users are the exception as there is an explicit merge option for them.
The importer might work with XF 1.1, but upgrading to XF 1.2 is the safe bet.
Forum A - 10,000 threads | 50,000 posts | 5,000 members
Forum B - 5,000 threads | 20,000 posts | 1,000 members
Say I would like to move all posts and members from Forum A into Forum B. What happens with the conflict of the post and thread ID numbers?
Another question. We have forumA.com and forumB.com and we import A into B. So now only forumB.com exists. How do we get the traffic from Google links pointing to forumA.com to go to forumB.com if thread ID's have changed (which is what I am guessing happens).
