    I am ready to import a vB4 database into xenforo.

    I would like KMA to create an importer for vB4, please.

    I dunno? I had a feeling that plugins don't natively import to xenforo....?

    I guess I have a habit of thinking official importers are better than plugins/hacks/mods.

    There have been many successful conversions from vB4 to xF.
    You should run the importer and see how it goes.

    The vB4 importer is based on the official vB3 importer so it does pretty much the same job.

    righto. i wish for an official converter too. in fact, i wish xenforo provides a conversion service for a fee. i am still waiting for a good time to migrate my vb4 forum to xenforo. the license is lying unused right now. just want a good solid conversion that i can trust.

    I may be wrong, but I do not think it would be in the best interest of xenForo to make a vBullletin 4 importer until this Internet Brands lawsuit blows over.
    Paul M has written a very good importer and is a trusted moder on vBulletin and xenForo.

    Although, you may wait if you wish.

    My vb4 import went flawless using the importer that's in the addons here. As always backup your stuff and run a test first, but mine and many others went very well.

    I used it for the vb4 import and it worked flawlessly.

    I did the import from vB4 during the first couple of XF betas with no issues whatsoever.

    I had a wonderful experience with Paul's importer.

    I may take it out for some dancing in Vegas... ;)

    That'd be Paul's mod. I ran succesful tests on my main forum, and fully intend of using it when we go live. It's as reliable as it gets. There's also an add-on to convert the "post thanks" into likes, which bolts onto Paul's solution.
