Importing "Guest" Users - What happens to their messages/threads?

Rik Brown

We have quite a few messages/threads from prior users in our vBulletin 4.2.1 database for which the user no longer exists in our users table. However, within VB their messages still show their username without them having any corresponding user record & profile.

If we migrate to Xenforo, what will happen to all of those messages/threads from those users who no longer have a record in our VB users table but whose messages are still part of our forums?

Does Xenforo have the ability to import and display within threads those usernames even though they no longer have a corresponding user record?

Thanks. -- Rik
