ImpEx Module: Xenforo Details »
ImpEx Module: Xenforo
Mod Version: 1.0.0, by Andreas (Coder) Andreas is offline
Developer Last Online: Mar 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.1.11 Rating: (2 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 30
Released: 18 May 2012 Last Update: Never Downloads: 544
Not Supported Is in Beta Stage  

This is a Xenforo module for ImpEx, the vBulletin Import System,
it does allow you to import a Xenforo Database into a vBulletin 4 installation.

Currently, the following data will be imported:
  • Usergroups
  • Users including Avatars
  • Forums
  • Threads including Polls
  • Posts
  • Smilies
  • Attachments
  • Conversations
    As vBulletin does not have an equivalent to the Conversations feature in Xenforo, conversations will be converted to Private Messages in vBulletin.
    Please note that any attachments used in conversations will get lost as vBulletin does not (yet) support attachments in PMs.

This module has been developed for Xenforo 1.0.4, but it should also work with Xenforo 1.1.X.
Please not that Xenforo 1.1.X features (Profile Fields, Thread Prefixes, etc.) are not yet supported.

If there is enough interest I might add those features in a later release.

Warning
This module is BETA and has not been tested extensively - use it at your own risk.
If you find bugs, please report them!

Important - See Post #87 about an important potential security issue and fix if you use this.

How hard is that to do? Think if you get a lil spare time you can accomplish this? I'm no expert like you are.

Not much, all necessary hooks are there.

I don't have spare time, and even if I hand I most likely wouldn't do it as it's a rather boring task and I don't think there would be much interest..

Sorry

I could send some money your way. I do a boring job too, so I understand, how long would it take you and how much would you charge?

Hi do anybody have a redirect script or code to redirect the old xenforo links (forums, threads, ...) to the new vbulletin ones?

Is this possible? Thanks!

Benny

I am just about to run a test instance however the first thing that is displayed in impex before I even start importing is:

I have finished a test run...very test only run to see what problems come up.

1. Firstly there is the error message across the top of the impex page that I posted about just above
2. As far as tables go, it reported 2 tables not found:
xf_identity_service NOT found.
xf_user_identity NOT found.
3. The Attachments path I just could not get right. I tried echoing the path and it showed the correct web address for the internal_data/attachments of the source web site but it failed on all attachments. I copied the source attachments folder to a folder in the target domain (i.e. vb site) and used the path /home/xxx/public_html/source_att/attachments/ and that worked for about 500 attachments out of 14,500

NOTES:
I am using XF v1.1.2 and vb v4.2 PL1
I run a dedicated server using WHM/cPanel and both domains (source and target) are on the same server
My XF site has 7,000 users, 25,000 Threads and 180,000 Posts

Andreas, if you want to test it all with access to the source and target domains let me know

If importing in a new VB instance, does this retain the same IDs (thread_id, forum_id etc) as the ones used in XF or not?

I cannot see any difference between the two bits of code, you probably want to make it more obvious.

After importing email your members with the password reset link. That's what I did. It wasn't too bad.
