    I am trying to convert my mybb forum to xf. But I am not getting which is the best approach. And I don't care about catering user passwords.

    So which one ? via vB or IPB ?

    tia :)

    PS - Please don't suggest me paid services & all. I want to try out myself & also my mybb forum is quite small :p

    It depends on if you have a license for vB or IPB. If you have both, I would go the IPB way... vBulletin is full of bugs and I don't trust the Impex importer.

    Oh, I didn't know about vB & bugs thing.

    I just had a quick conversion from myBB to IPB, everything seems correct :D And passwords have been catered successfully !

    mybb to IPB was very quick, but IPB to xF took a lot of time !

    Everything seems fine. But only problem is with my account. It is now a latest member and post count to set to 1 ! It is still first member of the forum, members/avi.1

    I rebuilt all caches again, still the issue is there.

    Any help ?

    I was going to say rebuild caches - run through the entire list...

    But I guess you already did and the issue is still there. Brogan!

    That data is updated with a crontab, not cache rebuilder option.

    Floris is talking about this cron:

    Admin CP -> Tools -> Cron Entries -> Rebuild Board Totals Counter

    It runs automatically. Just give it time. Or you can run it manually to force those stats to update.

    jake - Thank you ! I ran the cron entry thing, it did not work. I ran your SQL query, I did ! It showed 15 rows affected, that means there was problem with 15 users with their post counts...

    but any idea why that happened ?

    and also, what all the things I should check once the import has been done

    Biggest one is permissions.

    I am guessing the user post counts were not correct in IPB. When you import to XenForo it preserves the post counts from IPB.

    @floris - thank you !

    @jake - Post counts in IPB are fine and also how come I became latest member (in sidebar which appears on homepage)

    It shows the latest user by register date. Your user must be it.

    I got it how. In my old forum, my username is Avi. While installing IPB I used same username, so may be that's why the problem has occurred. I will do import job again & see

    Can you tell me hoe shall I reinstall xenforo & IPB again OR do I have to clear DB and run the installer again

    To reinstall XenForo you need to:

    1) Empty the database.

    2) Empty the contents of data and internal_data.

    3) Visit /install
