    Hi, excuse my poor english! I´m spanish... sorry

    I have a question very important before i buy xenforo. In my database exist 3 different charsets, latin1_spanish_ci , latin1_swedish_ci and latin1_general_ci and for this reason it is not possible to realize the migration of my vb 3.8.1 to 4.1.10, I have been thinking in xenforo to update my forum, since I have seen that incorporates a converter.

    My question is ¿ maybe a problem with the conversor of xenforo to convert posts vb 3.8.1 to xenforo with this three different charsets ? in a few words ¿ maybe possible?

    Those are all the same character set (Latin1, which is Windows-1252), they're just different collations which change the ordering/comparison of values. I believe XenForo should be able to import that without any issue.
