XF 1.5 Restoring threads / messages within a date range


Active member
Hi All,

A while back my host completely lost their server. I migrated to another host but lost about 6 months worth of data (I foolishly trusted their claim of weekly backups).

Much to my surprise, they have now done some sort of restore. I would thus like to be able to export import any threads / messages within a range of say "Jan 01 2016 thru September 01 2016".

Is this feasible?

It's potentially possible but not simple by any means.

The simplest way may be to do an XF to XF import and delete everything except those threads and posts from the source forum.
