Data Migration

Our Migration Process

The thought of migrating your forum to a new platform can definitely create some anxiety. Vanilla’s services team has migrated hundreds of forums, big and small, and in every case the results have been overwhelmingly positive. Our process includes: a test migration; ample time for testing and orientation; communications best practices; and a final migration with minimal downtime that is scheduled based on your traffic patterns.

Migrate Everything

In most cases, we can import all the data from your existing forum to Vanilla. This includes passwords, images, emoticons, uploaded files, private messages, banned users, and more. We will also work with you to ensure that your SEO ranking is maintained and that any key functionality is preserved.
