Hello,
I am thinking to convert my forum from vbulletin 4 to xenforo.

1.Can you check my forum and let me k ow if optimized conversion possible with all data and plugin without loosing anything?

www.medicalgeek.com

2.And currently it has myfilestore hack of vbulletin, so in Google search results, my website from search result is being redirected to myfilestore domain.. if I convert from vb to xenforo, will I get rid of that hack too?

3. About post sales customer support?

4. Overall cost

1) Looking at the size of the board its not a huge board so I cant see any obvious reasons it wont import however you havent a prayer of migrating the plugins as well. You need to check to see if the plugins you use are available in xenforo - https://xenforo.com/community/resources/

2) I am not 100% sure on this , but I suspect you would lose the hack.

3) Its excellent , I have used it a few times

4) See licensing costs. https://xenforo.com/purchase/

Hello, I need following plugins specifically and if they are available, can it be imported from vbulletin existing plugin too? Data will be imported or new? (For example, of quiz plugin available, already created quiz by users will be imported too or they have to create again)

1. VbQuiz (quiz plugin , multiple choice question and other types of quiz, category wise)

2. Vbadvanced link (links directory category wise plugin)

3. Shout box

I checked it.
Installation service charges are 50$ and 140$ for xenforo...What other extra charges for conversion ? Or it is included in installation charges? I couldn't find it..
Thx
In that case I misread your requirement. Xenforo official will just install the software , not actually do the conversion. It really is quite straightforward though

Details as before : https://xenforo.com/community/resources/

the shoutbox is defiantly there - I have seen that

I wouldn't expect the plugin info from VB4 --> Xen to carry over though

To clarify, we do have an official installation service, but we do not perform migrations.

As has already been stated though, there is a built in importer and it's a fairly straightforward process.
Community support is also available, should you need it.

I would highly recommend you make a test environment and practice the import a couple of times. You will be surprised by xenforo's permissions system, it's totally different but in the end much better once you understand it.

Losing some plugin's settings is a small price to pay for the great advantages of xenforo over vBulletin.
