View Full Version : Moving photopost from phpbb to vbulletin
September 27th, 2011, 12:12 AM
I want to move my photopost from my phpbb forum to my vbulletin forum. I want to keep all the categories when it's moved. All photos can be deleted. My phpbb forum and vbulletin forum are on different servers.
Is it possible to do this at all

well you can follow the steps outlined in the many threads on "switch integration" posted here so it is possible. You of course would have an extra step before you begin anything and that would be to transfer all your content the gallery folder and any database tables to the new server. Then the work on reinstalling to integrate with a new forum type could begin.

Hi Chuck, I just replied to your email. It would be easier to do a fresh install. I sent off the paperwork and server details already.

Hi chuck, the admin area of my gallery is showing a black background with white writing. I'm not sure why. The gallery home page is fine.
Im on my mobile so I dont have access to my email or I would send you a message that way

Your admin is going to show the photopost style not vbulletin so your fine. Your front end should be vbulletin style.

Ok then, I thought it may have been like the admin area of photopost on my phpbb forum. The background matches my forum there.

phpbb integrates alot less than vbulletin so yes the admin may have matches colors since the css integration was merely a color swap. with vbulletin there is an entirely different template set which uses special html along with css classes and we even pull the header footer etc.
