    Unfortunately there isn't a myBB to XenForo importer so you would still have to use Impex via vB.

    When using Impex, it's usually necessary to do some additional work after importing, which varies with the software you're importing from.

    I myself imported my phpBB forum to XenForo using it and had to fix all of my BB Code, smilies, etc.

    XFerno is a digital music site. XenForo is this forum product. =D

    Just use ImpEx to import the data from MyBB into vBulletin - don't bother going to the front-end, just go to xenforo and import the data from vB to XF. Then see what is left over, what works and what doesn't work. vB is just a data funnel. You don't need it, heck, I don't run it! I just run ImpEx standalone without vBulletin.

    I read xFerno and all I could think was "HE LOVES YOU!"

    I don't see why everyone's laughing at someone mis-spelling a product name, some people suffer from something called dyslexia. :p Seriously though, isn't this supposed to be a professional forum? You guys are acting like a bunch of kids just because someone mis-spelt your precious forum software's name? Give me a break......

    Start a PC with me if you still have issues. I will see about building you an importer from MyBB to XenForo.

    VB Impex works perfectly in Importing MyBB 1.6.3 and 1.6.4 except the password :(

    Passwords do not transfer over from vB to another system due to ImpEx not supporting it.

    If you ever have to do Forum System > vB > XenForo, you can guarantee that passwords won't convert over, and most of the time you're lucky to get attachments (as ImpEx likes to treat each case differently)

    I hope, Xenforo importer supports MyBB password fields in the future.
