Migrating from vbulletin 5.1

    Hello,

    I currently use vBulletin 5.1 for handling my forum but I'm really unsatisfied with it since I migrated from vB4.
    So I'm looking for a new forum and xenForo seems to fit my expectations in terms of specification.

    Now I need to evaluate how I could migrate from vB5.1.9 to xenForo, and after some search here around I could not clearly see if it exists an "importer" for this release of vB. I do see some for previous release but not vB5.

    Is there any plan for such importer to be created?

    Many thanks

    SliN

    We don't have a native importer for VB 5 unfortunately.

    You would have to do a double import to one of the supported importers: VB5 -> IPB/SMF/MyBB/etc. -> XF

    That assumes there is an importer available for the other scripts to import VB5.

    New importers are developed based on need and while there have been a few requests, it isn't something which has been asked that often (relatively speaking).

    Thanks for your answer.

    I will perform some tests using the IPB importer ;-)

    FYI, that would have to be IPB 3.x at this stage. We don't support importing from IPB 4 at the moment.

    For reference, the current list of importers can be seen here: Pre-Sales FAQ

    Also, @Claudio at Todo10 can import your vB5 board as well. He does a pretty good job, and not that expensive.
