    I was wondering if it would be possible to take an older phpBB forum, and import it into my new (existing) XenForo forum? If so, would it import all content including, topics, posts, members, etc? How does this work and is it even possible?

    Thanks so much,

    There is a built in phpBB 3 importer.

    The pre-sales FAQ in my signature has a screenshot of what is imported.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I found it, okay, looks like threads and posts cannot be imported yet?
    Is it that it CAN'T be imported? Or is it that the built in importer can't do it yet? To my point, could I theoretically pay someone to do it, or it's not possible all together?

    The previous steps have to be run first before the later ones can.

    All of the steps listed, the content can be imported.

    I misunderstood the image... thank you.

    May I ask a question, what happens if you import a username from the old forum which already exists on the new forum?

    You will be prompted to merge or rename.
