    I would like to purchase a license, but I have a question
    Is it possible to transfer the database from WordPress (works on bbpress plugin) to Xenforo?
    Ie I need to move all users with passwords (and personal information in their account) and all topics ...
    Is it possible and how?
    Thank you

    There is no built in importer for WP and I'm not aware of a third party add-on available.

    You can check if it's possible to import into something like phpBB, MyBB, etc. first and then import into XF.

    I plan to buy a license for XenForo, but do not want to buy another license for vBulletin only for the transfer ...

    Am I understand right that this is a free solution?

    MyBB is a free source software, so yes that will also work as well. I completely forgot about the merge system for there.

    You should know though that your passwords will not carry over. The solution is to either create an addon which sends all users a password reset email after import OR just put a big link which says reset your password.
