    If it doesn't you could conceivablly convert to another forum software that has a converter and then convert to vanilla.

    mybb 1.8 ---> another forum software that vanilla can import--> vanilla.

    this looks like the packages that vanilla supports....

    @Chalipa If you want to send me a sample database dump, I can take a look at writing a conversion tool. My company email is on my profile. No guarantees on speed or what it would cover.

    //edit: If you elect to do that, FIRST please create a new user in your forum with a simple password you can send to me. I need a confirmed-working username & password combo to ensure I get the password conversion done correctly.

  • @Linc‌ I have sent you an email with all the information you asked :)

    Hopefully i will hear from you soon
