Importers : vB vs IPB


Active member
I have used only IPB importer. Basically my forum was in myBB and I chose via IPB path.

I am yet to test vB importer.

IPB importer is quite fast & did worked well. And catered passwords too.

How good is vb importer ? Which is better, IPB or VB [assuming user has a choice] ?

and which one you prefer ?

@TheRevTastic - If catering passwords is not an issue, which one you prefer ? vb or ipb ? and why ? Since you provide xF services, I think you are th right person to ask ;) (y)

Well I don't have a vBulletin license and have only used the IPB converter to test convert forum software that XenForo doesn't have a converter for atm so I choose IPB! Lol.
