Migrating from phpBB 3.0.1

    Apparently it is possible to migrate an existing phpBB 3.0.1 forum to a Xenforo using the importer that comes with the regular Xenforo installation.
    However, I can't find a "How well it works" reference anywhere. So, can anybody tell me (from experiences) how well that importer works? Will users be able to keep using their existing accounts or does the importer just copy-paste existing forum posts?

    The pre-sales FAQ lists all of the content which is imported.
    See the screenshot here: https://xenforo.com/community/threads/pre-sales-faq.4951/

    Members will be able to log in with their existing accounts and passwords.
    All threads and posts will be preserved, along with the other content listed.

    Thank you very much for your answer, Sir.
    I guess it's time to purchase XenForo :)
