    Thanks

    Not passwords

    This would require modification of the vB database and would break the principles of an import. User can very easily reset their passwords.

      Yes, we have an import script for IPB. You can read about it here:

      Please note that since IPB passwords are encrypted, they cannot be imported. Your users will need to reset their passwords after the import. You can read more about this here:
