Switching from vB

    finally had some time to trace the "old" crew.

    I'm currently still running vB3x but have a license for vB4.

    To switch to xenForo, are there any advantages or disadvantages to switch from 3 or 4?
    As in, should i upgrade to vB4, then switch, or switch directly from vB3?

    Is there a "portal" available for xenForo? (my users are used to it)

    Thank you,

    You can import from either vB3 or vB4. There isn't a particular benefit in importing from one over the other so you'd probably might as well go from vB3 to XF.

    There are several portals available. You can find them in our Resource Manager:
    Resources | XenForo Community

    There really is a lot of choice so look into all of them :)

    I don't think it would really makes a difference.

    Not in the core, but there are add-ons for them. I'd recommend @Jaxel or @Dan.

    Thank you very much!!!

    I hope the process won't hurt much, as I don't have much time :[

    It's pretty simple, and if you do get stuck, the XenForo team is more than happy to help.

    To be fair there are good ones from @Brogan and others too :)

    As I said, try them all.
