I would like to see an import/export function that allows to take what's available on the front end, export it to a file (xml?) and then import to a brand new xenforo install. Take the default out-of-the-box xenforo items (post, like, trophy, member, attachment, etc.) while leaving out the rest.
I'm not sure how wp handles it since it seems flawless to simply click on export, install a new copy with a fresh database, import and it's up and running without all the crap from outdated plugins, changes, etc.. I'm sure vb can't do that as their db dump brings all the garbage over. A nightmare if you ask me.
Has anyone tried to export their test xenforo data (install A) into a newly installed xenforo (install B)? Just wondering if it works well or causes problems. Yes, I'm spoiled with the easy wordpress import/export without having to go into the database.
If I remember correctly, when data is exported from vb and then reimported to a brand new install, it would cause problems. I could be wrong and it may just be my bad experience. The main reason for this request is to get the main data from xenforo into a fresh copy and keep out all the bloat that has been building. Sort of like a refresh. Hope my explanation is clear.
