Migrating from NodeBB to Xenforo - Some questions

Hi there,

I work as a Lead Community Manager for a mobile games company. We are considering migrating to XenForo. Some questions:

- We are currently using NodeBB. Do we still need to migrate first to either phpBB or MyBB and then use one of the importers available or can it be done directly at this point in time? Building a tool that migrates from NodeBB to phpBB or MyBB would take up a lot of our time. Is there a plugin that does this?

- Is user data and content migrated properly following the above procedure?

- Are there any successful migration examples like our case above?

Many thanks

You're better off importing to phpBB 3.

This is straight from MyBB.com docs webpage → MyBB Merge System

In addition... read this thread for further info on the migration of phpBB 3 to Xenforo → phpBB 3 To Xenforo Migration
