XenForo --> SMF converter?

(1/3) > >>

landyvlad:
There is a possibility that I may take over a XenForo site.

In case this does happen, I'd much prefer to convert it to SMF
1. Because that's what I'm used to; and
2. Because XenForo costs money I don't have.


It appears to be a current / recent version of XenForo in use (2.0 or even 2.1)

I looked at the list of converters here: https://download.simplemachines.org/index.php?converters
and cannot find any converter for XenForo listed there. :(

XenForo seems reasonably widely used, so I'd have thought a converter would be available ?

In order to achieve a conversion (by whatever means may be suggested) what files/ directories would I need to obtain from the current forum owners?

Thanks.

Aleksi "Lex" Kilpinen:
At the very least I would think you need a database dump and all user content (attachments, avatars and some such if any). Would not hurt to have copies of the source files too just in case.

landyvlad:
Cheers

and what would be the conversion process? Is there a converter available that would work?

vbgamer45:
I don't know of a convertor.

GigaWatt:
If you can grab a hold of a database dump, maybe someone can take a look at it ;).
