    Is it possible to migrate from another online forum to XenForo.com's forum?

    Or would I need to start from scratch (start with no posts) when I switch to XenForo?

    Matt.

    Yes, it's possible.

    It depends on the source software if it is natively able to import. Otherwise, intermediate software or custom work is required.

    The pre-sales FAQ in my signature lists the current importers, along with screenshots of what is imported.

    Brogan,

    MyBB has two MyBB software packages. These are 1.8.1 and 1.6.15. You say you can integrate from 1.6 but what about 1.8?

    Matt.

    The importer has only been written for and tested with 1.6.

    Depending on the changes from 1.6 to 1.8, it may or may not work.
