I still have the old db backup and that includes articles. It'll take some work but they still exist. Anyone interested in looking through those in all their unformatted, SQL glory?

I have the entire database and files backup, what is missing is basically to research how to put it back up as a separate site from ats (since we can't really merger them), taking into account that the fact that the software is a lot old now, and probably very vulnerable too.

I don't know how feasible that is. We tried it once, didn't work out so well. Smiley What I'm suggesting is to pull the old articles out since they were essentially HTML stored in a database, then re-upload them here.

Sucks that we can't pull out the old posts so easily isn't it. Sad

We can get the text and probably who wrote it, but that's on request piecemeal kinda thing. I'm sure we could pay someone to transform the database to SMF but the keyword there is "pay", since I don't think any of us know how or have the time to learn. I spent a couple of weeks trying. :-/

With a Quick-Reply you can use bulletin board code and smileys as you would in a normal post, but much more conveniently.
