    Yes, we have an SMF importer. You can read about it here:

    You may need to load the 3.5.0 manual first:

          You have to install vB first, then use Impex to import the data.

            So what is your PRIMARY reason for incurring the cost to move to vB?

              What has that got to do with anything. More often then not people use free forum software until they can afford software such as vBulletin which has the backing of its many users and developers not to mention the support that goes with it and the stability of the code too.

              So asking why doesnt really have anything to do with this thread what so ever.

              People may even wish to change to vBulletin just because they like it or maybe because it offers functionality that other free boards dont.

                Unless of course you went from a free board to vBulletin, in which case you might actually have an opinion worth reading.
