Considering converting from IPB 3

I currently have the latest version of IPB 3. I continue to see Xenforo sites ranking higher than IPB sites.

I have 1.5 million posts, and around 15,000 images in the gallery.

Is it possible to convert this many posts? If so, roughly how long will it take?

Hi Brogan,

Thanks for the quick reply!

Currently my forum is under a folder /forums

Can I create xenforo under /xenforo, and then run the import. After the import is completed, can I change the directory to /forums?

Lastly, will my old URL's automatically have a 301 redirect to the new xenforo url? I'd hate to lose all of my backlinks.

Thanks.

I see what you're saying now. So I would follow the same structure you have: /community/forums

As long as I can 301 redirect effectively, this would be fine.
