Xenforo Migration Services – vBulletin, phpbb, mybb and IPB

 

As early adopters of the Xenforo 1.x and one of the first to road test a conversion from vbulletin to Xenforo on some of our own forums we’ve grown with Xenforo, over the past couple of years we’ve converted over 80 forums of all sizes from 10k posts to 4 million posts…converting from phpBB, vbulletin 3, vbulletin 4 and IPB.

  • Attention to detail
  • Retaining current search standings with appropriate URL redirects
  • BBcode Mismatch correction
  • Removal of unwanted HTML and Word processed.
  • On going after care for weeks after initial migration is complete.

Our migration services consist of initial test imports on a demo server, taking note, fixing problem we find along the way, we build a migration plan over short period of time to ensure your forum is ready for a final migration. Once completed we monitor and stay with the forum owner until they are complete comfortable.  Our attention to detail,  old fashioned customer service before, and after the service is second to none. Our long list of repeat and long term clients which have followed us over the past 9 years across a numerous platforms is something we are very proud of.

We opt for planned execution and correction of issues before they are seen live, unlike other services where migrations  are done on the fly and then have weeks of bug fixes. We may not be the cheapest provider you will find, but we know you wont be disappointed with our hands on approach leaving you to relax.
