As designed vBulletin 3.8's 'Interests' userfield imported as part of the 'About me' contents on XenForo

On my forum I have various custom user fields like:
  • Interests: learn PHP and improve my french skills
  • Favorite movies: Titanic
  • Favorite music: classic
Instead of importing the data in the 'About You' field as:

learn PHP and improve my french skills
Titanic
classic

You should also import the custom user field name and put everything in the 'About You' so it will look like:

Interests: learn PHP and improve my french skills
Favorite movies: Titanic
Favorite music: classic

Much better don't you think?

Only fields 1 - 4 in the source are imported into core fields. Unfortunately, there is no way to identify what those fields are, so if you want to change the structure to import those into custom fields, you would need to modify the code to fit your exact needs. (Fields 1-4 are default fields in the source DB.)

I'm not talking about importing vBulletin's custom user fields as custom user fields on XenForo.

See, you're already importing the contents of the custom user fields inside the 'About You' section of XenForo. My proposal is to not only import the contents of those user fields but also their title, so in the 'About You' section the end result will be:

"$vb_customfield_name" + ":" + "$vb_customfield_contents"

Which will result for example in:
Favorite movies: Inception, Prince of Persia, Avatar, etc.

Instead of:
Inception, Prince of Persia, Avatar, etc.
