A friend of mine recently decided to close his forum down(IPB) due to inactivity. I asked would it be interested in passing the site on to me for the data(members & post) and I wanted to migrate his site into mine.
I'm also planning to merge another friend's site(Xenforo based) Into my current Xenforo forum. We share a similar niche and decided to just work together under one site.
I wanted to ask
1. For my first friend, do I need to do anything special? I know both sites need to be on the same server and I need the login info for both for the importer to work. But am I able to merge his IPB data into my current xenforo forum without messing up my own existing data?
For instance, If I am user 4 on my board and he is user 4 on his ipboard how would he convert over?
2. For Friend 2, does the new Xenforo 1.2 importer work the same way as the other forum software importers do? I don't need to do anything special for this at all do I?
I hope it makes enough sense what i'm asking(it does in my head lol).
Thanks a bunch.
