    Last time I checked, and for mysterious reasons, it was impossible to import XF1.1 into newer Xenforos
    (XF 1.4)

    Is it still true ?

    thanks !

    Nothing has changed.
    The XF importer still only applies to 1.2 and later.


    Is there any reason you can't upgrade the source forum to 1.2 or later prior to importing?

    You have to realise that it forces XF1.1 users that have heavily modded installs to
    - copy their live install
    - upgrade this live install to 1.2, with no uses on it.
    - migrate this install into their new 1.4 install
    It's a pain

    I have difficulties to understand why the imports stop at 1.2, apart from it not beeing a priority... WHich is probably sad but true :)

    If you are importing into another forum then surely the source forum is irrelevant after the import?

    In which case there is nothing more to do than upgrade - you don't need to worry about any modifications, outdated templates/styles/add-ons, etc.

    I would hardly consider it a pain.
