    Greeting D6 community! Several months ago, I had to abandon the current setup for the forums because of continued hacks into the board. Each time I cleaned up and tried to secured the boards, I failed and the hacks persisted. I didn't give up but did abandon the outdated vbulletin board. I understand there are still many sites out there running this same version 4 of vbulletin without issue. I didn't have the time to dig deep into why my board had so many security issues - obviously, the software can be maintained by those with more of a background to its coding than I. So rather than running in circles, I opted to close it for a time while I decided on the next move. I had no intentions of shutting the board down permanently, but weighed my choices during this lapse. I choose to go with IPB over other forum software I reviewed. A decision I hope the community here can grow to accept and love. Most, if not all, of the background issues of maintaining the security and code of the forum now falls to their support team, rather than me. I am paying for their cloud service, having to worry only about managing the configuration of the boards. In time, when things all settle where they belong, the site should turn along smoothly hopefully with little maintenance.

    I have an open request with the support here to see about importing all the old forum posts. It seems like it can be done, just something that is out of my control to resolve. I do have SQL exports of the old board which I am saving. The old forum lives on an account with BlueHost, which in a few months I am going to let expire. I wanted to make sure I exported all the information, files, images and SQL I could prior to that date. By that time, I am hopeful most of the post will already be imported her, letting us all move to a new chapter for the D6 community.

    All the old content is here, save for the images. Going to see if I can pull them off the old boards and store them here in the gallery. Another project added on the ToDo list. I will be slowly making the old content visible, but would like to get feedback and what "NEW" forums you guys want.

    Yes, moving from one software to the new one, I have to see, which I do not think, that they both have the same type of formatting rules within the Database. I still need to go through all the Admin Configures to see what can be turned on. But, at this point, the imported data is more or less, legacy information and might have to suffer with formatting issues. But I will see what I can do... Still a learning curve here for me. Just keep pointing out the discrepancies and I will see what can be done to resolve Thanks Magman!
