@piyush try installing with npm after opening a terminal in your nodebb folder.npm install nodebb-plugin-whitelist-email-domains
then go to plugin page and activate it, rebuild and restart.
Basically NodeBB migration meeting you half way.
1-) export your forum into a file structure which the importer can read, if you're using UBB, i already wrote one that does that nodebb-plugin-import-ubb, if not, use it as an example to export your forum.
2-) import your files using nodebb-plugin-import
csvformat, so you can email-blast them to your users
don't be shy opening an issue if something goes wrong
this is the most awesome thing anyone's ever contributed to nodebb. even more awesome than this:
and that's saying a lot.
It works with vBulletin ?
well, like I said, it meets you half way. If you export your vBulletin data in the right structrure, the importer will import it for you.
if you have a decent, database of vBullettin I can probably take a look and figure out a way to export it.
hey @bentael, congrats! looks like somebody used your importer. just found it on google today, they managed to import 11k users and 320k posts
I did that, that was the reason I started writing the migrator in the first place, don't laugh at my theme yet, still experimenting with LESS and the templates
So this is your forum, eh? I am thoroughly impressed.
Don't @psychobunny any ideas, he just might end up spending all his time and energy making a theme for you, with no time left over for us
@julian nah not mine, a friend's - it would be cool if you can add it to your list of who's using NodeBB to push some traffic towards it, but wait not yet, gotta change those category boxes on the home page.
hehe, yea, I won't
@bentael is the blog on your site a custom plugin you have done?
@StuartH the blog is WordPress, notice the domain change, but the extra navigation items, yea, these were added via a plugin, still very experimental though, I don't have a readme for it yet, but if you install and view the admin page of it, you'll get an idea.
@bentael I did not click on the blog button so did not see it went to wordpress. I have blogs on my xenforo site and they are not generating very much content, but it's a different type of person going to our sites mines gaming your medical so I can see you will get people to blog more easily.
@StuartH if it makes you feel better, the bloggers are paid doctors
Let me know when you're comfortable enough for me to list this site on nodebb.org, and the 'who is using nodebb' list. I'll also tweet and facebook the URL, when you're ready for it.
@psychobunny I will thank you !
Apologies for resurrecting this topic, but is this plugin available for v1.4 of NodeBB? I don't see it listed in the list of available plugins on the admin panel.
LATEST VERSION ONLY SUPPORTS:
I install nodeBB v1.0.0 and update my forum to 1.2.0 after import information from my old forum (v 1.2.0 was actual when I import from phpbb3)
(IMHO it is most important plugin for commtity grow and I don't know why it is not support for actual versions)
Ah that's a shame. I just tried to downgrade, but encountered all sorts of problems :(.
@Tom-Wilson if you're importing an old forum, I'm assuming you'd be starting from scratch. Just reset your database and do
git checkout v1.0.0 and then the regular setup steps from there.
If you're trying to merge with existing data already in NBB, that's another thing entirely.
