I'm in the final decision stages of probably dumping vB for IPB. I just can't wait anymore for a solid, viable CMS integration.

I have 13,000 photos in PhotoPost. Can I convert that installation to a new IPB board (converting 450,000+ posts from vB as well)?

If so, what would be the best process? And if so, can I keep my existing PP license or do I have to buy a new one?

Thanks.

You can switch your forum using whatever scripts that have at invisionboard sure.

You would need to reinstall photopost into the same database tables etc that is there now so you wont lose anything and integrate with invisionboard.

You would then need to use the USERFIX script posted in our photopost imports forum to fix the userids on photos comments because that stuff will change with the forum import scripts they mess with userid's so you want to make sure your photos belong to the proper people.

There are detailed threads on our to switch integration if you do a search on those two words.
