Covnerting to Mybb


New member
I am converting a fairly large Mybb community over tonight. What all is converted and not converted with a conversion to Xenforo? Will passwords?

We support the MyBB authentication scheme so all passwords will still work, and they'll be updated to the more secure XenForo authentication system after the first log in.

You can see a screenshot of the import steps here:

Anything that isn't listed as a step for MyBB isn't imported, though do feel free to check if you're unsure.

Make sure your permissions are correct as I had to update then from mybb to xenforo and if you have the Google seo mod then it might be hard to redirect your url's.
