Hi,

I own several websites with a myBB forum on each one. It's only websites about gaming communities, so each forum is about a different video game.
I thought it would be great to move everything to 1 IP.Board forum, so I wouldn't have to manage and update each one.

I converted 2 forums already, but the problem is that every time I do an import, I have a bug :
Every section/category and forums are placed in the wrong order. I can get sections from the forum I convert with subforums from the first board, etc. It's all mixed up

Let's say I have a forum that looks like this before converting :

Category for Game 1
- Subforum for G1
-- Subforum for G1
- Subforum for G1
- Subforum for G1

Category for Game 1
- Subforum for G1
- Subforum for G1

After converting :

Category for Game 2
- Subforum for G1
-- Subforum for G1
-- Subforum for G2
- Subforum for G1
- Subforum for G2
- Subforum for G1

Category for Game 1
- Subforum for G2
-- Subforum for G2
-- Subforum for G2
- Subforum for G1
- Subforum for G1
- Subforum for G2


It's not a HUGE problem, but it took me maybe 30-45 minutes to sort everything out and place all the forums in the right order
If the converted forum would go AFTER everything else that is already on the forum, it would be way easier, but the fact that it's all mixed up makes it hard to organize everything after the import

If you have any hints or ideas on how to avoid this, I'd like to know
