Couples of question before converting to Xenforo

#1
Hello, I've IP.Board 3.2.3 forum and would like to convert my forum into Xenforo. My question is:

1. Most of forum users using Facebook to login and register. Can they able to login as usual even after conversion?

2. How about IPB post likes? Still available on Xenforo?

3. Can users password and username will be saved after conversion?

Thank you. :)

1. I think they will again have to link their Account to Facebook, but that shouldn't be a problem :)
2. The IPB 3.2 converter will take care of that :) (http://xenforo.com/community/threads/redirection-scripts-for-invision-power-board-3-1-x-3-2-x.14652/, it comes with the download, no need to install it anymore)
3. Usernames are saved indeed, but I think the passwords will have to be reset by the users manually..

Thank you for the answer. :love:
The IPB importer preserves passwords if one already exists: http://xenforo.com/help/importing/
Is the password from Facebook users also will be preserved?

If the members have a password stored in the IPB database then yes.

Otherwise there is no password to preserve as it is stored on the FB servers.
