vBulletin 3 to Xenforo?


Will importing my vbulletin 3 forum to Xenforo work? Also will all the profile fields also convert to xenforo? Please let me know. Thanks.

XenForo comes with a vB3.7/8 importer as standard, accessible from the ACP via Tools -> Import External Data

Custom profile fields however are not currently supported.

Since this is beta - it is higly recommended to keep your old vb3 database. In case anything goes wrong.

I've imported a database through creating a new database and dropping that vb3 database in there, then let xenforo import everything from there. Worked flawlessly.

Thank you. Will the custom profile fields be supported in the future?
Not sure, but you may want to *like* this thread.
And there is also
Well, there's already a gender field and a free form location field, so that does a couple things that you want, though it may not be in the format you want.

There are plans for custom profile fields, yes, though I don't know the form they're going to take yet.
