vB to IPB+ Transfer Questions

Recommended Posts

I'm considering make the switch from vB to IPB. My biggest site/forum, the one I'm most concerned with is www.skywarnonline.com. If you visit the site you'll see that I have Photo Gallery, Blogs, lots of content pages, and vBa's portal.

To match what I currently have I'd have to probably purchase IPB and all the add ons. I do have some questions that I hope some of the members, customers, or IPB staff could answer for me.

IPB has a vB convertor, correct? All of my categories, forums, threads and posts will be able to switch over, correct? What about PMs? Will the make the switch as well?

Photos - Will IP.Gallery bring all the photos over to my new site/forum as well?
Blogs - Same question.

I have a feeling that I'll have to rewrite all the content pages, and I'm okay with that. But if I'm wrong, please - please correct me. :)

Any other thoughts, suggestions or advice are welcome as well.

Yes to all of those.

I'm afraid so, but you shouldn't have to do much more than copy and paste.

Correct. Of course it all depends on how IP.B+ is uploaded to the site. I will most likely lose access to the pages once IP.B is installed. I'll just have to copy and save all the pages prior to installation.
