Import Via Vanilla

If you can’t find an importer from your legacy forum to Discourse try Vanilla.

  • First use Vanilla Porter to export your old forum
  • Then import to Discourse with the vanilla.rb script

You don’t have to install Vanilla for this, you just need to be able to run PHP.

Took me a while to find a way to convert from YAF to Discourse but it worked perfectly.

Vanilla supports:

PHP forums

  • Vanilla 1
  • phpBB 2-3
  • vBulletin 3-5
  • bbPress 1
  • SimplePress 1
  • Simple Machines 1-2
  • PunBB 1
  • IP.Board 3
  • XenForo
  • Joomla Kuena
  • Drupal Forum
  • MyBB
  • esoTalk
  • Expression Engine

ASP / .NET forums

Requires conversion to MySQL first. Try the dbdump tool.

  • Yet Another Forum

  • Toast

  • UserVoice

  • ASP Playground

  • Webwiz
