Specialist Import Services by SlavikIf you need a board imported to XenForo, regardless of how large you are or any unique requirements you have, then you're looking in the right place. Importing any board can be a time-consuming and nerve-wracking process, especially for those who have large boards, or ones which provide a source of income for the owner.
As one of the first big boards to migrate to XenForo, and well over 1 BILLION posts imported since, my own expertise has come invaluable for helping others do the same, I have converted and imported more boards and data into XenForo than any other person or company. I have my own custom developed tools and procedures designed to make the migration process as smooth and seamless as possible. My experience means from start to finish I will work with you to ensure everything goes as planed with as little hassle as possible.
Whilst the majority of my work involves converting big boards from vBulletin to XenForo 1 and XenForo 2 , I cover nearly all circumstances such as:
- Regular Board (<1M posts) Imports.
- Specialist Big Board (1M post+) Imports
- 2 Step Imports for not directly importable software
- Custom data imports (Migrating addon data from the old software to a XenForo equivalent or replacement)
- Test imports
- Off-site imports
- Other specialist requirements
- Import VB4 CMS Articles > XenForo Resources Manager
- Import vBulletin Blogs > XenForo Threads
- Import iReviews > XenForo Resources Manager
- Import Wordpress Posts > XenForo Threads
- Import Jive > XenForo (limitations apply)
- Incremental Imports (See below)
- Huddler > XenForo
- vBulletin Paid Recurring Subscription maintained into XenForo (users don't need to re-subscribe!)
- vBulletin CMS Articles > Bobs AMS
- Import vBulletin PM Folders
- And more, let me know your requirements.
- Server tuning and optimization to make the most out of XenForo
- XenForo specialized fully managed hosting
- Maintenance services
Pricing starts from as little as $150 for vanilla imports of boards under 1 million posts. Big board imports start at $150 set + $30 per million posts and custom or specialist imports are priced on requirement and complexity.
Time wise, this depends on several factors including forum and user base size, any specialist or technical challenges, and the urgency of the transfer. Most boards opt to run a test import first and once verified that everything appears correct, run the live import several days later. Regular boards usually take less than an hour regardless of any specialist requirements, Big Boards are usually done within several hours.

New service - Incremental Imports - Reduce your downtime to seconds!Available nowhere else, I can offer a new incremental import system for vBulletin 3 and 4. While using the Big Board Importer can take an import of days down to hours, there is still an unavoidable downtime created by the actual time of importing the tables and re-applying any custom changes.
By using my custom scripts, we first do a full import, and then can import the changes and new content made to the following import areas:
- User Groups
- Private Messages
- Visitor Messages
- Thread Prefixes
