  • Rewriting URLs form vB 4 to vB5 - Content IDs are not equal

    Now that work on a vB 5 installation is coming along, I'm looking at what it will take for a smooth upgrade.

    The biggest issue I see is with old URLs. For all CMS content, the vB4 and vB5 content IDs do not match. Below is an example:

    vB4: https://soundforums.net/content/2669-HARMAN-Distributor-Audiopole-Brings-Studer-Vista-X-to-French-Market-with-Paris-Launch-Event
    vb5: http://v5.soundforums.net/161924-harman-distributor-audiopole-brings-studer-vista-x-to-french-market-with-paris-launch-event

    The old database was imported in an earlier version of vB 5. Is this a known issue?
    Any suggestions on handling old URLs if this is the case?

    Thanks

    Assuming you are not using a third party URL rewrite tool (such as vBSEO) on your vB4 instance, the old vB4 URLs will automatically redirect to the new.
