    When Xenforo will have a direct mybb forum converter? It will be really easy for every mybb users then who wanted to convert. I know xenforo staff is helpful with it and can help us in the conversion but my point is it will be a better thing.. :)

    Unlikely any time soon.
    If you have a specific forum to convert just ask - there are tried and true ways of converting MyBB to Xenforo.

    Yeah, i know it is possible to convert by converting it to vb/php/ipb first then to xenforo but a direct converter is a easy and safe option as per me.

    Unfortunately, unless someone decides to write one as an add-on, it's unlikely we'll get a direct convertor any time soon. However, a few of us (Jake Bunce :D) are very experienced at two-step conversions and can do so without any loss of data. It might not be the neatest or most direct way of doing it, but it does work!

    For now, you're going to need something like vBulletin 3 as a middle-importer.

    I recommend mybb > phpbb > xenforo
    The best way, based on experience :)
