Not Solved

MyBB forum server should have provision for adding the other system database & you should have full access.

createmybb site cannot be used for the Merge System.

And you may install MyBB on your computer by using local server system (eg. XAMPP) and do required merge.
the merged database can be used for a live MyBB forum (not at createmybb sites) - better to have paid hosting.

Thank you.

So it is possible to do a merge of vBulletin, even if vBulletin was on another DB server, as long as I had access, right?  But not through a DB dump?  Just making sure, so I know to what extent I'll pursue trying to do the forum merge, and to what extent I'll pursue trying to get access from the vBulletin forum owner.

So if I had any kind of paid hosting, I could use their DB for which to do the merge on, correct?  And I'd also have full admin control, vs. having having a free MyBB site host it (like createmybb), where there would be some settings I might not have control over?

On another note, would I be able to modify settings, such as number of nested quotes (what if I want all nested quotes in a reply by default)?  Actually can you do nested quotes with MyBB?  I'm not sure, just by looking at it.

Ok, I see nested quoting is possible.  I didn't see it before because I was using the full editor.  But it's easier to see the quote tags and and how they'd be nested directly in the quick reply section.


My only remaining open questions for now are the other items in my post above.  And maybe some general pros and cons of using a free MyBB site host like create my bb, vs a paid host.
