    I am thinking about moving my community from vBulletin to xenForo but I need to know if I can convert it before i pay $140 for the license.

    The package comes with a built in converter for the 3.7 or 3.8 series of vBulletin. Once you're a license holder you'll be able to access a vB4 imported that Paul M wrote up.

    Just used the converter for the 3.7 and 3.8 series on my 4.0.7 Board and it worked perfectly.

    I don't know why/how but it did. :/

    Banksy for the most part to my understanding the process is extremely similar however I don't think that attachments are converted over. Paul's mod fixes this.

    Thats correct. :)

    It also pulls in Social Group discussions, Blogs and CMS Articles (into special hidden forums). It has a few other tweaks as well.

    Just to add to what has been mentioned already, the beta2 import process worked nicely.

    paul's importer worked great for my vb4 to xen converrter i recommond you use it. If you have vb4 installed in your community
    be aware
    • reputation system won't import to like system in xenforo
    • photo albums is another issue, becuase xenforo doesn't provide this feature

    Well My "community" never started up really. I had just bought a vB license blindly and now I went with xenForo.

    There was not much to carry over so I am not that worried. Thanks for the helps guys! :)
