    I have a client who is much fed up with the version 5 and want to move over XF but community is kind of big and he don't wanna lose data (posts, users).
    You guys have any importer for VB5 or a way ?
    I will really appreciate if any solutions come up

    XenForo does not ship with a vB5 to XF importer. A double import is necessary.

    The only thing I can see doing is...

    vBulletin 5 < phpBB < XenForo

    Why doesn't Xenforo make an in built importer from vB 5 to Xenforo?
    I think it should be done really

    I am another seeking refuge from VB5.
    Biggest mistake i ever made going from 4.x to 5.x when i reopened a forum after a years absence.

    Is there some place we can look up documentation for XF?

    Sidebars, creation, use of static html within custom blocks;
    multiple registrant captures;
    advertisment banners
    forum permissions

    all the good stuff.....

    claudio you can PM or email me as well.

    Invision Power Board can also import vBulletin 5 and from there on it can be reimported back into XF. I do know that MyBB is looking into a vBulletin 5 importer, but they need a sample DB, but once that is done, it can then be converted to XF. I have heard that Claudio has done a good job, so it might be best to use his services.
