Has anyone looked into importing data from one NodeBB instance to another? The import plugin doesn't seem to fit the bill here, and forums being able to merge with one another could be nice for smaller communities looking to combine.
@sanatisharif sent you the instructions email, i am going to paste it here as well for others
For all the newusers I am going to make the assumptions of their JoinDate based on their first thread or comment;
@sanatisharif since your importing to an existing nodebb database BEFORE you test it make sure make a copy of your original NodeBB database, setup a TEST NodeBB instance, and test with that before you do on your production database
After you have that done, here are the import instructions, I am going to assume that you are using a Linux based system, or mac
# go to the NodeBB directory you have
# delete any previous import plugin you have, then a install the latest one, it was ONLY tested against NodeBB 1.0.0, but if you are running 0.9.x it should also work for you.
rm -rf node_modules/nodebb-plugin-import
git pull https://github.com/akhoury/nodebb-plugin-import.git
# then go back up a directory and install the disqus plugin, since it's not published to npm yet, you need to do it manually
git pull https://github.com/akhoury/nodebb-plugin-import-disqus.git
# here you need to paste your disqus XML exported dump file somewhere, let's paste it here, you dont have to do that, part
cp /path/to/my-file.xml .
# now go back up to run nodebb
# run NodeBB
Any reason the plugin itself doesn't work for you? It does require you to actually click the button to create the post, although I assume it can be automated for Ghost (we just tended to make it a little more generic so it works with WordPress, etc.)
