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: (1 vote - 5.00 average) Installs: 30
Released: 18 May 2012 Last Update: Never Downloads: 548
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.

It is not possible to just import XenForo passwords into vBulletin as XenForo password hashes are incompatible with vBulletin, you would have to create an Addon to handle authentication differently than vBulletin does by default.

Although this would be possible, it requires quite a bit of work.
please guide me how to create addon please.

Not without resetting their password, yes.

Take a look at how login.php, functions_login.php do work, extend the database to store XenForo Login credentials and program the required Plug-ins.

AFAIK current IPB versions don't use a hashing scheme that is compatible with vBulletin, eg. if you import IPB accounts you would most likely have ot reset passwords as well.

I actually converted to code in both worlds, but when my vBulletin database crashed (probably XenForo doing...) I was resorted to keeping the converted XenForo. I've never liked it, but have found myself making more of a profit on XF than vB, but loosing my SEO has dropped my members and guests by half, so the money I have earned making mods on XF, I have lost by advertising revenue decrease. So... Money wise it's about equal, but from day one about 6 months ago, I wanted to switch back. Note to self... Never install and convert a database table... On the same database.

Ohhh, and no, it won't be ping pong, I will be selling my XenForo license after this mess is cleared up. Coding on their platform is more complicated, auto template editing is not even possible yet, which really aggravates me and other customers.

Bump. I mean if XenForo can convert passwords to their own format why can't vB convert back?

XF doesn't convert passwords, it simply has code to support other authentication systems besides its own as well - vBulletin and IPB.
vBulletin does not have such a system, it only understands its own format

If you want it to support other authentcation systems you have to do that on your own.

So XF doesnt convert it just uses existing and recognizes if it is a vB password?
