Sorry, copy and paste the link into a full screen browser window.

It's importing data into vBulletin 2


Or try this link

Yeah, there are a bunch of converters... But, I don't think you can access many of the things in the vBulletin forum until AFTER you've bought a copy. There are whole new sections of the forum that aren't there on a guest account if I remember correctly.

I bought it a couple of years ago, so I don't know what access guests have these days.

Rat -- all guests can do is download a trial. What Nucleo is seeking will only be available to him in terms of an add-on feature after he buys the program.

Yeah, if I remember right, the forum is classed as "Support", and you don't need support unless you purchased it. So, until you cough up the cash to buy the software, it's not public access :)

Vbulletins do look nice. Nucleo, why don't you just start off fresh again? I will be happy to sign up again
