    Hi all,

    In case your wondering import works with 4.0.

    Only the attachments are a fail :) I must say the import went very smooth.

    Attachments are handled very differenlty 3.8 - 4.0

    can we see an online example?

    Kier should make it known that a vb 4 converter exists as it's in people's head that it doesn't :)

    Nice to know.... still look forward to a vb4 full importer in the coming day/s... then another of mine is shifting from vb to xenforo.

    For me the attachments are very important, so I hope it will be available soon. Xenforo is stunning and I am just a happy owner of a brand new license :)

    I need to stick to VB4 for a while until I can import all data including the attachments.

    I managed to modify the code and it imported my vb 4.0 perfectly.. Really just had to change some column names in the importer file..

    If we had a forum for just members I would post the function itself, but all the mods I did were in the stepAttachments function..

    Tried importing my vB4 installation, but got a few errors while importing PMs and [video] didn't work along with attachments.

    But forums, threads, posts and users imported more or less without issue, giving me a good testbed to work on until a proper importer is released :)

    this is awesome. i do not even use attachments on my own forum. this means i can start testing almost instantly! awesome.

    Other things the 3.7/3.8 importer will not grab from 4.0.x: subscriptions & custom user profile fields.
