URLs & old VBSEO likes?

    If I purchase XF now... what about the URLs?

    Can they be made similar to VBSEO, VB5 or such? (vb5 has broken links from around the internet)

    Can old VBSEO "likes" be imported? (it would be nice for members to retain their current likes/reputation)

    [I have a backup of my DB from a couple of weeks back before I upgraded the SW to vb5 - I'm willing to lose a couple of weeks data if need be]

    If imported retaining content IDs like normal you can get a set of htaccess or other server rules to redirect the URLs.

    There is a likes conversion plugin in the resource manager or in a thread somewhere. Can find it later. Requires rebuilding the like cache after for the names to show.

    Thanks for the prompt response... I understood everything you replied with aside form this one bit;
    Could you elaborate somewhat for me, please?

    We import vBulletin 5 boards to XenForo so if your old backup doesn't work let me know.

    And do you resolve URL issues as per the first post? I have to be honest, the 350 seemed rather an expense but the 170 quoted for the import alone seemed much more reasonable.
