I've been wondering if an existing PunBB forum can be merged with an existing vBulletin forum, keeping -of course- PunBB as the main forum system.

Does anyone know if this is feasible?

Has anyone tried anything similar before?

Thank you!

Some of those forums are still running on single servers. I know a couple of them running on single or dual processor systems with 2-4 GB of RAM.

We're running our forum on a Dual Processor Dual Core AMD 265 with 4 GB of RAM, but it's not a dedicated machine for the forum. smile

And PunBB is extremely light and fast! smile

It's not a bug, the post count counts how many times the user has posted, not how many posts currently exist by them.

Thanks for your reply.

Any specific reason why PunBB does this way?

Most other board systems take into account any deleted posts on the post count of a user.

Thanks again.


I don't know whether this has been reported previously or not, but on our forums I have just deleted a post of a member and his postcount remains the same (and perhaps the total messages as well).

You might want to try this fix as well:



Hi again!

Thank you all for your recommendations.

I have installed the CrystalBlue style/skin and I think it is pretty nice:



Please let me know what do you think about it

Thank you!

I'm sorry, could you please re-phrase your comment? smile

Hi iatbm,

Would you recommend any skin/template either free or for sale?

Thank you!


I wanted to thank PunBB since now this great bulletin board system is powering our new forums about web hosting, dedicated servers and Internet related technologies for spanish speaking users.

This is our new community and let me take this opportunity to invite you to join us (if you speak spanish wink)


Thanks again!
