Is there a converter for Simple Machines forum to XenForo?
Not a direct importer. But you can do a double import by way of another supported platform like vB, IPB, or phpBB. How big is your forum? I can do the import for you if you want. I have done several SMF imports by way of vB.
It's not very big, roughly 20 members right now. I wouldn't like my members to register once again. Best time to do the 'upgrade' forum before we get more members. I suppose I can get a copy of phpBB import SMF to it, then PhpBB to Xenforo like you said.
Be mindful about the user passwords. Sometimes they don't survive a double import. The passwords survive through vB. I'm not sure about phpBB.
I just converted a SMF into XF using gConverter services. ($75.00)
They did a good job.
There's one that doesn't do everything if you search these forums because I went from SMF to XenForo using it. Think it rubbed the polls but I wasn't that bothered by that.
After some thought, I've decided to create from scratch. Members had to register one last time, and there wasn't much forum content that was important. Thanks for the help, hope other's searching for smf -> xf will find this usefull
