No luck finding a Vanilla Importer

    I'm very interested in xenForo, and I'd like to be able to test it's performance with my existing forum data, which is a Vanilla 1 forum. Has anyone been able to convert a Vanilla forum either directly or indirectly?

    There is no official Vanilla importer, but it can be done using vB as an intermediate.

    How big is your database? If you give me a copy of your database then I can run it through the double import and give it back to you.

    I think it's about 100mb or so, but unfortunately I can't release a copy of the db. Thanks so much for the offer though! :D

    Youll need to get a vbulletin license and run it via impex first then.

    Thanks for the replies!

    Do you happen to know if the online demo supports data import? I'd like to test performance compared to Vanilla.

    I doubt it. Besides, performance is dependent on the server, so you would really need to test it on your own server.

    Silly me. You're totally right. Ah well...
