    Does anyone know if there is a "turnkey" script or software that can be used to rip an entire vbulletin site so that a new forum site can be built from the content? There is a vBulletin site that is being closed, very soon. I want to rip it and recreate the site so the wealth of info in contains is still available and can continue to be contributed to. This is not for profit. I realize vBulletin is database driven so the ripped content would need to be properly formatted and imported back into a database. I know anything is possible if you have the skill set but I'm asking if there is a ready-made script or program that a novice can use. Cheers!

    Instead of taking so much pain. You can buy the site from the owner who is closing it :D

    I don't think that's correct. I'm pretty sure I've posted once or twice :confused: Scratch that... I remember now. I signed up to access a link but I never posted.

    They won't sell. It's a company owned forum for a product that is being discontinued. There are still many, many users of the product. No more forum... No more support.

    Here you will not find anyone who can do this. Better you can find this thing related to vbulletin script related forums.

    I think OP means to scrape all of the forums content and save it somewhere so he can use it again.
