This is a quick outline of the problem I'm facing:
(actually it's a private subforum, not public) - regular user access (i.e. non-admin), no access to database.
- created by me (I'm the admin)
contains a few important threads I'd like to copy over to B
Copy those threads over to my forum.
In theory, this is doable. In practice, it's doable but (at least from what I know right now) very tedious.
Do I have to copy the contents of the threads/posts from A
manually? Or does a tool exist somewhere out there which would make a copy of all the threads (whole forum structure) in there and save dump it into, say, a text file?
Can the admin of a phpbb3 forum create posts under a different, registered to somebody else, account? (since involving* 50~ people in moving the forum's contents to a different one would be quite a hassle). Other than directly altering the SQL database, of course (I could
do that, but it sure feels like a waste of time)
* - the way I see it, they would have to create threads and reply to them in the exact same order as on forum A
, I'd have to edit them all, pasting in the original message.
That would be all, this isn't insanely important, but I found these problems pretty interesting.. hence I'm hoping for some minor brainstorming.
Thanks in advance, for any input at all.
