    When migrating from SMF to Xenforo, will the URLs stay the same? Or do they change creating a SEO nightmare?

    The URLs change but redirection can be implemented to map old URLs to new URLs.

    Okay thanks. Is there a SMF to Xenforo converter yet, or do I still have to have to move to phpbb first?

    Sweet! Are you aware of any serious complications when using the SMF 2.0 importer?

    The converter works very well with no serious complications

    I should add it is still technically classified as a "Beta" though. Although it has been tested by quite a few customers so far, it would still be wise to do at least one test import first before going live. And, needless to say, perform backups before the live import and be prepared to restore that back up should you need to revert back for any reason.
