    There isn't one.
    1.1.4 is the highest supported.
    You may try,but surprises might pop up.


    vB5 is unequivocally the best forum software, but not yet...

      A small correction, at the impex system there is a smf 2 folder. But I don''t know if it is for smf 2.0 rc 3. Also the smf 1.1.11 is supported. I know this as I have converted several smf 1.1.11 forums to vb.

      Anyway, I have read here a post from a staff member where it was stated that those forums that are in beta/rc stages won''t be supported until they reach the final stage.

      However, you could convert your smf to phpbbb 3 and then convert to vb.

          I also want to know if this is possible. I have a site that is running SMF 2.0 RC2 and would really like to change over to vBulletin. I am not going to buy vBulletin first just to find out so if anyone has a clue if the conversion of at least the members, topics and post is possible please let me know.

            The converter works fine with smf 2.0 rc2& rc3 as well, no worries. A couple of days ago I converted a smf 2.0 rc3 to vb 4 for a client of mine.

              if you really want to switch to vb i would suggest going to the newest 3.x.x version if you are going to buy the suite if you want the forum classic then the only issue you will have is skinning the board now then again with 4.1.0

                Ok, I do not understand what you are saying. I only see 4.0 for sale and why would you have more issues with a newer version? If I do purchase vBulletin it will be the Suite, not just the forum.

                  With the licence for vB4 you can install earlier versions as well,such as 3.8.5.
                  Convert to that then upgrade to vB 4.x.

                    May I ask why that is ncessary? Like that is more work. When he can convert straight to vb 4x.

                      No,it's not necessary.
                      Only a suggestion.More work but the transfer could be smoother.

                        And why it would be smoother? Doing it like that he will have to deal with the conversion + the upgrade. I wouldn''t call that exactly smoother

                          That is your opinion.
                          I have my opinion.
                          I would do it this way,you would do it that way Full Stop
