VB4 Import Question

#1
Currently on VB4, looking to move to XF.

With the VB4 importer, can I only import the members? I'd like to start over with the forums/threads...

You can do that sure... not sure why you would as it would lose any search engine rankings you had, but you can do it yea...

When the import starts, you have a few options to choose from... You'd best hope that members is one of them..

I ran a test and yes, you can do this.

As Jake Bunce said, you will need to still improve user groups, user fields, permission settings, and other user dependences ..... But confirmed it can be done

I wouldn't suggest it though. I think it would harm any community no matter where you're importing from or to. But you could do it.
