Thumbs up How to convert from Xenforo to vBulletin?

Hello folks,

After a few months of nudging around in Xenforo, I can only reach upto one conclusion that is -

1. Xenforo is stylish, atleast more stylish than vb.
2. Xenforo is modern and gives a sleek feeling.
3. Xenforo is good for a normal community (as of now) but not good for my requirements and what I desire.

1. vBulletin is still the best forum software out there.
2. vBulletin is dying, please save it, maybe relaunching a new version of the vB4 version which could support both vb3 code and vb4 code with a modern approach like xenforo is the solution (in my opinion)
3. vBulletin has many more mods and customization is easier that's why am back here.
4. vBulletin needs to change its interface big time.

Anyways, coming back to the purpose. I am looking to convert back to vb 4.2 from xenforo 1.2.

Does this module support this? -> http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=283111

If not, how do I do this?

You can setup a test site, run the new module from the thread you listed and see how it imports xen 1.2, it's stated to work with:

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.
It does not specifically say 1.2 and is missing some 1.1 data such as profile fields etc so 1.2 it might miss more or less it depends on the structure and one more reason to just setup a test site to be safe.

I run both VB and XF sites. I believe it is possible to go XF>phpbb>VB? I could be wrong but i am pretty sure we have talked about it before
