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.

Am I the only one wondering what XFerno is? HAHA
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 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)
