Re: Forum Updates - Aug 2018
How can I download the complete database for this site, so that I can restore the information in posts which I consider to be relevant, once the migration has occurred?

What's the timeframe for the migration?

Re: Forum Updates - Aug 2018
We're studying our options now, but within the next week or two. I can't really give out the database as that has password and other info in it, but rest assured all posts will be retained, even if I have to pay a dev for that.

Just confirm that it will be a seamless migration where users that are registered here will automatically be registered on the new forum?

Should be. There may be some metadata such as birthdays or other info that may require cleanup.

Re: Forum Updates - Aug 2018
Take a look at "The Fountain Pen Network", which makes use of Community Forum Software from IP.Board.

http://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/

This is a very professional looking option, which is probably rather expensive to license, but it's an option.

I appreciate the suggestion but we are not buying a commercial board software like XenForo, IP.Board, Vbulletin etc. We are planning to extend and develop the forum with custom extensions, and we cannot do so on a proprietary product easily.

We are likely migrating to MyBB, we are doing some internal testing on this.

Best Regards,

Cool, MyBB looks good and gives you good options in terms of themes.
