Import XFR to XFMG question

Just so we don't mess anything up.
XFR is populated with albums, images, etc
XFMG is empty

On fresh import from XFR to XFMG:
  • Should we 'Retain imported content IDs' ?
  • Should we Archive the import log table to the same acrhived_import_log that we've used for imports from vB to XF a couple years ago?
We do not want to clear out any of our vB thread and post redirects.

That's a decision you have to make. There are URL redirects built in and they will work with or without this option checked.

It won't let you do that, you'll have to pick a different name.

If you have an album in XFR User Albums with an album ID of 1, when it is imported to XenForo Media Gallery that album will keep the same ID.

Usually it's more relevant if you need to do any sort of automatic redirection, so it probably isn't relevant for you. Whether you do it or not, there won't be any consequences. Purely personal preference.
