    I'm almost ready to switch from vb3.8.4 to xenForo 1.3.1. In fact, April 29 is the date for the switch.

    I'm doing the last batch of testing and i need help on 1 last issue i'm having with the import. When importing, it says 2128 pm imported, but i know theres 2134 private messages in vBulletin 3.8.4. So there's 6 that did not import correctly. I know it's a small issue, but i do want my import to be perfect.

    I've managed to fix all of the issues i had when importing avatars, signatures, posts. This is the last issue remaining.

    What can i check, or what queries can i launch to compare and find those 6 pm that did not import correctly.

    ok, I did a couple of things the old fashioned way... launched a query in both vb an XF to extract the user id with the total of private message, and compared side by side to find those 6 missing messages... It turns out that the difference of 6 is from a user that doesn't exist.

    So, the lesson, xenforo does the job correctly by not importing orphans private messages from users that doesn't exist.
