    But I don''t think it is ethical to discourage potential customers from buying vbulletin and trying to steer them away towards ipb.
    Well life isn't always fair.

    It is fair either that I have to wait for a "stable product" to handle simple things like SEF links to handle some characters right, SEF links handled properly for tags, categories in blog module ... or even handle resizing images in the WYSIWYG edit ... when I paid for a product almost 6 months ago!!

      Look, I don''t want to argue with you but that is a completly different matter. If you have any complaints about the product then post your thoughts at the appropriate board. But doing what you did, as I said, it ain''t neither ethical nor professional. Just my 2 $.

        One question if someone can know. One person tell me that with the convert I lose somethings, like the avatars and signatures, the passwords of the users, and the quotes... can I don something to donīt lose this?

            passwords have to be reset by users, my avatars did not convert over when I went from IPB3 to VBulletin 3 or 4. make sure you read the impex documentation. You won't loose everyhing on my first try on one site I did not get the forum post but that because I missed a step when converting. Just make sure you read the documentation and you will be fine.

              all that converts just fine
              for the images, you'll need to copy them to a folder on your vb site and call to them in the import process.

                Actually, I think allowing dissenting opinions on this site is very fair.

                If anything, it would encourage me to buy vBulletin.
                Hmmm. Cheese.

                  Exactly, Those should help you out. Also you will have access to the support system when you buy the product should you have issues.

                  Also make sure to do a couple test runs on a non-live copy of your site so you are comfortable with the process. This will also allow you to fix any issues you may have during the migration before doing it on your live site.

                  Best,

                    Ok, thanks for the replies. I have done a test with two test forums, a IPB3 with three posts and users and more things and a blank vB4... I think that is all good except the quotes, avatars, passwords... now I have a question:
                    Can I test this with the real database of my live web but no in my real web, in other part to see the results?? jeje
                    Thanks!

                      ipb3 > vb. and many vb4'ers are converting to ipb3 these days, (i did also), check the ipb forums and you see. IPB is far more stable then vb4.
