    Hello,

    Thank you for your interest in the vBulletin Forum Software and for contacting vBulletin Sales.

    Yes we have an impex script free for download for customers that allows them to convert from fireboard to vBulletin.

    According to this page: http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/impex_module_dump

    fireboard
    Tier = 2
    Source version support in ImpEx = 1.0.4

    * Import usergroup
    * Import user
    * Import forum
    * Import thread
    * Import post

      If I am running Fireboard in conjunction with Joomla (Fireboard is using the Joomla user database), will it convert that as well? Or is it strictly Fireboard only?

        It will import the information as per Floris' reply above.

          Hi,

          I moved from Fireboard to Vbulletin, however Impex did not succesful migrate my user information.

          When I click on a user it says the user does not exist... and all posts made by users are set as a guest, so the user cannot see there previous posts.

          What could be gone wrong?

          Please help...

            This is the Pre-Sales forum. I would start a new thread in the ImpEx forum.

              ^ this and the fact that you just necro'd a two year old thread for no reason.
              That's it. If you REALLY can't say ANYTHING nice to me at all on this forum, then I am going to go insanely mad at you. I've had enough of the UNTOLD ABUSE you are all giving me and you should really be CONSIDERATE of other people.

                Someone wanted to migrate from Fireboard to vBulletin. They thought posting in an old thread was a good idea instead of starting a new one. Forum etiquette is important, but not life-or-death.

                  I have found it finally!

                  Just rename jos_users table to users... Damn, it took me alot to figure it out...


                  Code:
                  RENAME TABLE jos_users TO users;
                  Update: the Guide is ready!

                  Migrating from Kunena to Vbulletin 4.2.0!
