Editing line 3046 in the vBulletin.php file in src\addons\XFI\Import\Importer should resolve it.

IF(user.username IS NULL, thread.postusername, user.username) AS postusername

IF(user.username IS NULL, thread.postusername, user.username) AS postusername,

I figured you had.

I just had a ticket about the same error so thought I would post the fix so I can point anyone else with the same issue to that post so they can resolve it themselves until a new importer release is made.

Thank you for reporting this issue, it has now been resolved. We are aiming to include any changes that have been made in a future XFI release (1.3.2).

Change log:
Add a comma that had gone missing in the posts import query.
There may be a delay before changes are rolled out to the XenForo Community.
