  • Switching from Wbb2 to Vbulletin

    Hello all,

    I am currently running a forum using WBB2 (woltlab burning boards
    and I am extremely interested in buying a VBulletin liscense, but I would not do it with out being able to seamlessly switch over from what I am currently using. My users would kill me if I had them switch.

    Please let me know, thanks.

    Not all systems can import the source board's passwords; this is due to the nature in which they are stored. The details for each importer should list if they can be imported or not.

    If you import from a system where the passwords can not be imported or there was an error importing the passwords you can use the email all users and send them the link to your boards password reset page when you are ready to go live.

    That will allow them to reset their passwords, though it relies on them having the correct email address in their source boards user profile.
