  • XenForo 1.5 convert to vBulletin 3.8

    Hello,

    I have recently purchased vBulletin license and I wish to convert my xenforo 1.5 info to vbulletin 3.8.
    From the research I did, the best way is to move xenforo to mybb first (since they have the best converter tool) and then from mybb to vbulletin?

    If there is a better way please do let me know.

    Thanks!

    That is probably about the best way to be honest....our conversion tool dates back to before XenForo existed so it isn't able to import directly.

      Maybe you guyes should work on one?

      Or I can work on one for the community when I have the time, but for now I recommend everyone with the same XF to VB issue to convert to MyBB first

        Thanks...it's unlikely any work will be done on an importer any time soon. The development focus is on other things.

        ImpEx was our importer, and it was open sourced a couple of years back.
        One of our former support people did make some updates to it for a while, though none recently. It doesn't work for XenForo, but it should be useful going from MyBB to vB 3.8:

          Alright here is what happend Xenforo 1.5 -> MyBB 1.8 -> vBulletin 3.8, and perhaps you can help me by answering all my points?

          Important Issues:
          1. Passwords are not working (thus every user has to reset their pw by mail, which is VERY annoying)

          Non-Important Issues:
          1. Usergroups are created double, so Administrators is there 2 times, Moderators, etc.

          This are the only issues I notice right now

          Thanks.
