    I used this importer on my board. It worked perfectly. It imports everything except user passwords but it allows you to email all users a new password.

            I upgraded from iB 3.1.1 to vB 2.2.9 with that script with almost no problems. The only issues were that the html codes were still displayed in the posts (iB stores html in the database, vB stores the actual vB codes) so I ran a script with a regular expression on the posts to convert them.
            The other issue was that the user ids weren't converted properly, iB 3.1.1 allows you to see each user's id in their profile and the user id under vB was way off. I just made some changes to the database prior to importing and everything was fine.
            If you don't believe me, go ahead and check our forums (http://forums.a-s-charmed.de) , I can also give you the url of the old forum from which we converted the posts.
