    Why? Keep Wordpress as a powerful CMS, and XF as a powerful forum. That would be the best solution.

    $39.99 :O xenforo costs a lot itself!
    I have a lot of users registered on my wordpress site. I don't want to lose them :(
    I want to put those users on the forum!!!

    XF doesn't provide a CMS -- no software other than Wordpress is going to be better than Wordpress. Stick with the XF-WP bridge.

    Consider this: for any package (eg VB), the version with CMS included costs much more than the base forum version. If the WP-XF bridge costs money, think of it as paying for the "extra CMS module". Stick with WP, the IPB/VB cms's are in the stone age by comparison.

    Yeah it costs money. I can run this import for you if you want. I would need a copy of your WP database.

    Oh yeah. I'm aware of bbpress and other nice wordpress forums.
    I like xenforo a lot and I want to switch to it if I can import my users there too (I have 100-200 members)

    Yes, the Impex importer that is provided for vB3/vB4 customers are able to import the mysql database. Then, migrating from vB3/vB4 into xenForo is the next step. Mr. Bunce can do this for you. ;)

    His constant help to customers at the expense of finances is astounding.

    Are you still around? I finished your import 2 weeks ago but I haven't heard back from you.
