    I know I asked this in another Thread but just wanted to check.

    So I installed Xenforo with a data base.
    I will do the import from vB 4 for the data base

    I just want to check that all that does is import the table into the Xenforo database?
    Basically not effecting the vB 4 database at all, that will still be in tack and usable just the same after doing the import?

    The source database is unaffected by an import.

    I thought as much, but always good to check and maybe good for others if reading this
    Thanks Brogan...

    A new question.

    Say I do a test import to see how it all goes, then I want to delete all the boards and users before doing the real import am I right there is no mass delete for boards or members?
    Do I have to delete everything one by one?

    No you want to start with a new database to import into. Once the import is done, then you will make modifications.

    The only issue I ran into when I imported from vB4 were duplicate emails. In XenForo duplicate emails are not allowed, so before you import I suggest you check for any duplicate emails in your vB4 forum.

    I did link you in your other thread to the best method for doing an import, but you dismissed it.

    @New Joe I'd highly recommend following the guide that @Brogan linked to. It makes the process so much easier. I used this when I imported my forum.
