converting to xf from ipb 4


Well-known member
is there presently a way to do this? I am running the latest build and I am looking to convert it to xf briefly.
There is not a converter for Ipb 4x yet. But what you can try, is to convert to another forum that has an Ipb 4 converter and then convert to xenforo.

MyBB has an importer for 4.x, but it is not for the latest build. Xenforo could consider building one, if they have a database for it, so it could be included in a future 1.5.x release. If you want, you can contact @Chris D and include your DB for IPB 4.x, so that could help them make an importer that might help others in your situation.

Hopefully that means ipb 4.x can have aN importer in the near future either for 2.0 or in a later 1.5.x release.
Yes, I sent them my database and files as I also want to switch as fast as possible... IBP4 is just missing too many features, has a lot of bugs and the editor is too slow to be used on low-power devices :(

Here's hoping for a converter :)
Yeah... I'd like to throw in my own request for a converter here. I am not thrilled at all with the direction IPB is taking with 4.1 and would prefer to move one of my largest communities over to XenForo.

Of course, if they have as many db's as possible, then we could see an importer in a future version, but the focus is on v2.0. Though, I could totally see IPB 4.x importer in a future 1.5 release.
