    Greeting to all the team,

    I own a PunBB 1.2.10 forum with 11 000 members and more than 60 000 messages
    Is there a way with Xeno to import users / messages and forum categories ?
    How much would to charge to work on the migration ?

    Hey Nicolas,

    Someone kindly released a PunBB Importer recently (for free) and it is in the Resource Manager.

    It imports pretty much everything from what I can tell.

    You can find more details here: http://xenforo.com/community/resources/punbb-importer.135/


    EDIT: A few points. There is XenForo documentation regarding importers. Once the above importer is installed, the process is identical to these.

    Always do a test import on a copy of the live data first. This will get you familiar with the process and ensure it works in your environment.

    Finally, check out this post in the Resource thread which contains some fixes you would need to apply to some of the files yourself: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/punbb-importer.27026/#post-365168

    Hi Chris,

    Thank you for your answer.
    I will have a look at the documentation first and might ask for a quotation from someone to perform the task. You might know a good ressource ? :)

    I've not used PunBB before so I'd be reluctant.

    Jake Bunce here has done lots of imports with various software. Maybe give him a shout. He probably knows the answer...
