XF 1.5 [mention] BBCode from vBulletin to XenForo?


i'm already converting my vBulletin 4.x forum to XenForo, but now I have a problem: in vBulletin we used [mention] tag for make what we do in XenForo with user tag "@".

Is possible to convert them o make a BBCode that converts them in the Xenforo's user tag? (or at least make them link the user)

Did you maintain user IDs? If so, you can probably run a basic query to replace "[mention=" with "[user=" and "[/mention]" with "[/user]". If not, then I'd recommend creating a custom BB code for mention that links to your member.php redirect script (as otherwise the link won't be correct).
