Hi,

Silly question but no harm in asking.

Using the importers when they become available one can transfer users, passwords. threads, etc over but I take it all the hacks and skin will be break?

There are no specifics, but my suspected answer will be: Yes. For both the official xenForo convert script, as well as xenPort by xenfans.com
It's already confirmed that you can set the pass scheme, so users can be imported and keep their passwords.

Yes, I think so. The converters usually don''t support third party mods or themes.

Hi Hauzer,

Thanks for the reply. The question is though, the original hacks and skins will have to be moved after, correct?
Yes - although you might not find compatible hacks/skins in the early stages of the software, so you might need to rethink your options and wait a few years if your board is heavily hacked and you want to keep all modifications.
