    Hello, xenForians,

    I've imported a test back-up for my site from VB4, 15K+ discussion, 200K+ messages and 3K+ members, it went well aside from a few time outs but kept continuing and everything was perfectly imported.

    The only issue i'm facing is, now every reply to threads as, "Reply: thread title" due to how vb was set up. It is a little bit annoying since it's part of the message now and it doesnt look right. Any idea how to go about avoiding this when I eventually migrated my production site once RTL and version 1.0.0 stable is released?

    That issue was raised in this thread:

    http://xenforo.com/community/threads/importer-importing-thread-titles-on-every-post.5806/

    Currently the importer automatically merges the post titles and posts together since xF has no post titles. There is no easy way to change this after the import.

    An easy solution would be to clear the post titles from the vB database before doing the import. A query like this should do it:

    Code:
    UPDATE post
    SET title = ''
