Does the XenForo to Discourse Converter also imports password?

What is the complete list of data it will retain or import from XenForo?

It does not import passwords.

Here’s what it pulls from the user field. You can have a look a the code here. Even if you are not a programmer, you might be able to glean what is imported by looking at the names of the fields. For example:

       "SELECT user_id id, username, email, custom_title title, register_date created_at,
                last_activity last_visit_time, user_group_id, is_moderator, is_admin, is_staff

lets you see what gets pulled out of the XenForo database.

You might check out this thread, which describes a migrate-password plugin and how to write (or modify) an importer to migrate the passwords.

If you’d like someone to modify the XenFro importer, you can make an offer in the #marketplace.


How about the Attachments?
and redirecting old XenForo urls?

I don’t think it does attachments or redirects.

That’s very sad :-(.

It shouldn’t be too difficult to solve that problem. This is your opportunity to make the world a better place! :smile:
