XF 1.5 Help Convert Forum


Active member
We have a big (large) forum working on vbulletin
we want to convert it to Xenforo
We want to convert it quickly and without waiting too much
Do you help us turn it around?
The normal way takes a lot of time.

How many posts / users / attachments?

There are two importers:

1) The official web-based one that comes bundled with XenForo. If you have several million posts then this importer can take several hours to complete.

2) The "big board" importer which is unofficial:


This importer is the fastest for extremely large forums, but it requires a lot more expertise and testing to use. It might also need updating for the latest version of XenForo (updated column orders).

The official web-based importer is always recommended.
