    Ok thanks. I just thought a re-write could take care of that by removing the /forums/

    Because we take the showthread.php?t=154350 portion and rewrite to the new node ID as part of the backwards compatibility built into the software. That is all that is used though. So since you are no longer using /forums/ that extraneous bit causes the built in redirects to fail.

    I guess I don't understand why it works with the old URL when it is from the root like this

    The system attempts to rewrite old URLS to the new ones. However the directory structure must remain the same for it to work. My suggestion would be to build a Sitemap XML file and submit that to Google so it crawls your again and updates the URLS. When I visit your site with an old URL it does redirect to the main page instead of getting an error. Your hosting provider may be able to help you with an .htaccess update to help though.

    Sorry wasn't clear. /forums/ was on 4.2. After the upgrade,I expected the rewrite on VB5 to rewrite it to /forum/

    forums isn't a valid rewrite. There is a /forums/ page by default but it is simply a list of your forum channels. Was that your URL previously?

    Re-Write Directory

    I see a lot of directories destine for

    http://www.mysite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=154350
    Not being re-written for http://www.mysite.com/forum/showthread.php?t=154350

    If I type in http://www.mysite.com/showthread.php?t=154350
    The link works fine.

    Is there a mod-re-write that can fix this?
