    hey,

    i want to convert from mybb to xenforo. is it easy? what tools do i need and will i lose any data?

    also, a xenforo licence costs $140, do i need to pay this amount yearly or is it a one time payment?

    if a new xenforo version comes out do i need to buy it again?


    Thanks,
    Regards,
    Ace

    The license purchase is a one time payment.
    Annual support and upgrades can be purchased for $40 per year, the first 12 months are included with the license.

    There is no MyBB importer so you will have to go via phpBB, IPB or vBulletin.

    Thanks for the help. How do you install Xenforo after you buy it? Is it easy? I am a bit worried about the technical sides of things.

    It is super easy to install.
    But if time is short, you might want to pay someone to do it.

    I can do cheap MyBB to XenForo conversions if you need it. The only issue is that there is no way currently to redirect old links. Besides that though the process is quite easy via another software.

    What do you mean by no redirect of old links? So links on threads will not work?

    I mean that links indexed by Google and other search engines will not work. This is because the URL structure for different software.​
    You can redirect using htacess with certain software but since MyBB is not officially supported though the importer you cannot achieve this with MyBB.​
    Feel free to message me if you need more information about it and I will help you the best I can.​
