Hello everyone, I was looking for a way to convert my IPB 4X to vB 4x, but I found out the Impex supports up to IPB 3, is there any other way I can do this?

Sorry for the late reply; In the past, others have imported from lets say IPB to something free like phpBB or similar, then from there imported into vBulletin 4 via impex (if you do something like that though, it might seem like more work HOWEVER I would import from the new temp system into vBulletin 3, then from there upgrade to vB4 it just jives and goes smoother that way). Whatever temporary system you choose to import to must have some form of import system though in order for this to be successful though.

Since there is no converter to PHPBB 3, what I do is convert into mybb 1.8 first as their merge system works very well, then with the latest impex, import from mybb.
I just did it in fact.
