Hi @boka003,

Please follow Robert's answer in this support topic:

Besides, please note Forum to Forum migration is a large project. We’re sorry but we cannot support issues arisen during your forum migration. We only support questions related how to use and configure this tool in wpForo support forum. We don’t support the result of migration. This kind of large work is out of our support. In case the migration result of this tool doesn’t satisfy you, you should contact to professional forum migration services for custom migration. We only recommend gConverter or ProfProjects services for such projects. They have already done hundreds of forum to wpForo migration projects with the best result.

In case you want to say thank you !)
We'd really appreciate and be thankful if you leave a good review on plugin page. This is the best way to say thank you to this project and support team.

This forum is not  big at all, it have about 4k replys.

Hmm mabey i can try to convert mybb to phpbb or smf, and then convert phpbb or smf to wpForo?
Or is it some more easy solution? 🙂

The problem is in the old version of MyBB. The Go2wpForo tool is created and tested for MyBB versions from 2018 year. The 2014 version of MyBB database is very old. Try to migrate to bbPress then from bbPress to wpForo
