Hi, I was wondering if it is possible to convert from a relate+ product to another forum-software, or is it like, if you choose relate+ you are stuck?


 I am not familiar with the database structure and a search has failed to come up with a converter to or from any other forum option. 


So do I have to sit down and hard-code everything or is there possibilities in converting to relate+ and if it does not work as hoped, andy possibilities of converting back?

Hi Hallgier,

To my knowledge there doesn't exist any converters. So you will have to do it by hand if you really must export the data to another system.

so a forum with 13mill posts and 1.1 mill threads, are basicly stuck?

When I mean by hand I mean by writing a utility to export from the Relate template to whatever format the new system accepts.

The utility goes through all the posts and thread and converts them automatically.

any idea on how much work it would be to write such a tool, and how much it would cost? I am i that case looking for how much to make a tool to convert to IPB

Sorry I've never done it myself. But it depends on the knowledge you have of Relate's API, the IPB's API and how alike their structure is I would presume.

If you are facing problems with Relate, I know EPiServer Developer Support would be more than happy to discuss them with you. Maybe there is a way forward with Relate instead of switching to a whole new platform? I sure hope so anyway :)

Take care,
