    There is a built in importer for phpBB 3.0, but not 3.1.

    I believe some have used it to import from 3.1 but there were some issues.

    And when you incorporate the ability to import? The phpBB released a major update to 3.1. And Converter to Xenforo from phpBB 3.0 is not working...

    I don't have any information on when an importer for 3.1 will be available.

    There is no change from the previous post.
    There is still no importer for phpBB 3.1 and no plans currently to add one.

    Why?((( Because phpBB is one of the main CMS. And many switched from phpbb 3.0 to phpBB 3.1. A lot of people looking for ways to migrate to Xenforo with phpBB 3.1. The only way it is, it is in myBB first and then to Xenforo. But this method is very, very comfortable! On the forums with lots of messages, this method does not exit.

    Because for You it will not be easy. And good for you. Please respond! Please import from phpBB 3.1....((((

    @Brogan Are there any working converters from phpbb3.1 to ANY OTHER software that XenForo can automatically import? I believe that would solve OP's issue.

    Particularly, SMF or MyBB

    I wouldn't know - you would have to ask phpBB.
