So I went from SMF->phpBB3->XenForo 1.2.5

Everything imported fine except for passwords. If anyone can help me get the users passwords I would be highly greatful! If you can teach me how to do it so i can learn that would be awesome too!

For reference:
Just something to be aware of: double imports rarely bring passwords across. We have to handle specific types of passwords (eg, phpBB 3's bcrypt-based passwords). When you import into phpBB, they may have handling for SMF's passwords but XenForo won't. (I don't know what SMF's password scheme is so I couldn't really say.)

Is there a way to send all users a password reset email or some other easy way?
Would doing a double convert using vB be better?

There is no method for mass emailing password reset links.
Members will need to request one.

Going via vB won't make any difference.

Create a notice to get their attention. That's what I did when I did a double import from phpBB -> vB -> XF.

Alrighty, hopefully the notice thing will help!
