Has anyone imported Kunena 5 to Xenforo?


New member
I have a forum based on Kunena 5 and am thinking about switching to Xenforo. I tried to find some informations about a converter or anything like that, but the only posts about that I can find are already years old.

So has anyone successfully converted K5 to Xenforo?

I can write some SQL coding on my own, so in the end the biggest task would be to convert the Kunena database entries to the Xenforo structures, right? Is there a refund possible if that do not work out?

Thanks in advance for any helpful information.

Given nobody has replied, you can be fairly certain that Xenforo doesn't have a native importer for your current platform.

At the time of writing, XenForo 2 supports importing data from the following sources:

  • XenForo 2.x
  • vBulletin 3.6 to 5.3
  • IPS 4.x
  • phpBB 3.2
  • SMF 2.0
  • MyBB 1.8
What some others have done in the past for some unsupported forum types is to import into one of the supported platforms above, then into Xenforo. So two steps instead of one.
