Question about migrating IPB to Xenforo

    Hi all :)

    At the moment I run my forum on Invision Powerboard, but Xenforo really looks interesting. I read the manual on importing data and it seems not complicated. But I have still some questions:

    Currently my database is around 660 MB (1125 member 384 00o posts). What can I expect the size of the database to be after importing?

    Is it possible to import threads and topics without attachments? Pictures posted with img Bbcode tags are not counted as attachments, right?

    Thank you :)

    Another question, are passwords preserved? Or do members have to reactivate themselves?

    I don't know how the IPB schema compares to XenForo so I can't offer any information regarding database size.
    XenForo duplicates the post table for standard MySQL search purposes, so those converting from vB notice an increase in size.

    Attachments can be skipped - see the image in the FAQ to see the steps: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/pre-sales-faq.4951/

    No, embedded images using BB Code are not counted as attachments.

    Yes, passwords are preserved.
