migrate from mercuryboard?


Hello All,

I have a site that has approx. 100 users and the site is based on a mercuryboard backend. If I wanted to make this a GL site, can I import my user info and board posts or do I have to start from scratch?

Thanks to all,



I know you (the developers) get many requests via this
forum but I do persist in my quest for a resolution to this

Can someone tell me if I can import my mercuryboard forum
data/userdatabase into gl ?

Thank you,

I'm definitely not an expert, but I think porting your users over would be a hell of a lot easier than porting all the posts. Look for similar tables within your user table within your databse.
Are you not entertained?

I think to properly answer the question anyone would already have to be familiar with mercuryboard. I am doubting anyone is familiar with the table structure of mercuryboard and so could not make an informed answer to your question.

Just my two cents


Thanks guys. I guess I will leave it be.
I cant afford to possibly hose my user db
in an attempt to migrate.

your help is appreciated.
