mybb migration

Has anyone tried to migrate from mybb to vanilla? I keep kicking around the ide of switching, Bui don't want to lose what we've got already.

I'd like to test it out a bit and see how my users like it also, maybe run em side by side for a bit to compare and contrast.

Any thoughts and ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to the community.

    It only takes about 5 minutes to set up a test installation of Vanilla, so I'd suggest you do that, then grab the Vanilla Porter addon, and follow the instructions:

    Porter will do the job eh? I'll give it a try this evening and see how it goes.

    Thanks a lot for the info. I appreciate it.

    So I got home, downloaded and installed Vanilla, and ran the porter and... it doesn't look like anything was actually ported.

    I had a success message, but what should have happened doesn't seem to have happened.

    All I see is a message saying that I've got a sweet new forum. - that's what I've got - that's where I want it.

    Any ideas?

    Sorry sorry... I'm a little unfamiliar with the admin section of vanilla, I think I've got it...
