    I've read over this thread and want to make sure impex can do what I want.
    I've seen other post in the forum saying it will do it, but never an "official" answer

    Can we import a 4.x forum into a 3.8.x forum?

    So I guess this means that impex is officially dead, then?

    Whatever...after being a VBulletin customer since 2003, I'm officially sick of these guys.

    Glad to see it's not just me. I'm holding off on doing my big site until we see updates to impex and possibly vb 4.1.

For that particular site, I created hundreds of 301 redirects to ensure Google found the new pages.

    I have a big site (thousands of articles) and I'm really on the fence about moving that particular site. Right now, it uses a mix of Joomla, vB and Wordpress.

    import my Wordpress 2.9.2 content into my vBulletin CMS 4.0.2 using impex

    I'm trying to import my Wordpress 2.9.2 content into my vBulletin CMS 4.0.2 using impex without success

    I've set up impex and I'm confused as to what options I'm meant to be choosing. There seems to be two for Wordpress... wordpress_cms and wordpress (2.3.1). Which one do I choose as the system on the import screen? And what do I set the target export to? vBulletin 4.0.* or vBulletin CMS 4.0.* ?

    What do you mean by data scrubbing? Associating articles with Categories and the like?

    I have a load of articles - some are in Jreviews, will that port over? I love jreviews, but I'm totally done with joomla - sick to the back teeth of it breaking and having login issues with VB. Shame really as I only paid for it a few months ago.

    Thanks Jerry!
    x2!!!

    Joomla has just nuked itself (all on its own) on my website - I just want to port all of these things over to VB and end the misery that joomla brings to me on an almost daily basis.
    The current impex does bring content over from Joomla now. Unfortunately, you'll have to do some data scrubbing and associate your articles with sections, categories. I've moved a few sites over. It's not easy, but it's certainly do-able.
