I think that question had been asked, and that Jefe said it was not possible, I’m sure he will respond.. I do agree that there is a lot of good information we could lose....

It is complicated. If we were going to do it the time to copy the database was at launch.

A few people thought a fresh start was better and I have to say I tended to agree. It's too late now, I think.

Could you not lock the old site to new posts but leave it there and put a link on the new one so people can easily go back and search it for info! Then in a year, when this site has been well populated you could take down the old site.

A good idea that Selly. I have disabled the old board so no-one can login and search, but I think I can re-enable it but lock it for posting meaning you should be able to login in and search. When I've got 10 minutes I'll see if I can sort it out.

I have asked the people who supply the software if merging databases can be done and the answer was "it's not easy" which is techie speak for "forget it".

Even with Rocker & his Computer Clubs combined experience it will be a non-starter I'm afraid.
