XF 1.1 Import only converted 2/3 of my custom user profile fields


Well-known member
As the title says, the vB 3.8 --> XF importer only converted 2 out of 3 of my custom user profile fields. I went live with my site before I realized that one of them was missing. Is there a way that I can import the 3rd field into XF?

Don't think that would be possible with the importer. You will have to create the missing custom profile field in XF and then write a query to select from the VB db and insert into the XF DB. A bit technical but easy if you are good with SQL.

I'm not a genius when it comes to SQL, but I do know that this is the information needed to create the query:
vB Table: pc_vbulletin.userfield
Columns needed: userid, field7
vB Table: pc_vbulletin.profilefield
Columns needed: profilefieldid, data

XF Table: pc_xenforo.xf_user_field
VB field7 is equal to field_id 'package' in XF
Will have to convert vb's data column to XF's field_choices somehow.
