    Hi, I already asked this question using contact page and get replied that xenforo officially not help convert any site. I want to get third-party help (paid) and here in forum I cant post in service section so can anyone please suggest me someone for my work?

    My current forum is custom made Java servlet front end and PostgreSQL database.

    I think you must validate your license before being able to post in the other areas of the forum.

    I'm sure there are several that can do a bespoke conversion (from what it sounds like). The issue is, will the cost be prohibitive. Frequently from a custom program to something else can get rather costly in corporate world. Pretty sure it's not much different in the forum world.

    Xenforo can import from a lot of forums and it works well. If your software cannot be imported, then you can double import.

    Though if you have a custom built forum, I am sure you can contact someone and give them access to the database, then maybe they can see if it is possible to import it into Xenforo with a custom importer.

    Hi, yes we know about costing and we are ready to spend, one member (wang) was contacted us using private conversation to help us and he ask a big amount for doing this and that amount was reasonable for me, but he cant start before next month and we want to complete within this month.

    I dont think our forum can be converted by importer.

    You may also want to check with @Claudio and @Slavik. I know that they use to do imports - but don't know if they do them from custom scripts.

    Great, thank you, if you want I can send you database access (not live server) for checking current database structure and you can give me costing idea.
