  • Archive isse: Old links in Google no longer work?

    We were using the Archive feature on VB2, and it worked great.

    But now that we've upgraded to VB3, I did a search on Google for a thread of ours, it was found, I clicked on it, but it didn't work anymore.

    The new Archive works, but of course, nothing is spidered yet, so no one is viewing it.

    Do I basically have to wait for Google to find it again, and the old links are just no good anymore?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    vB2 didn't have an archive feature so you must have installed a file modification from vbulletin.org that added an archive.

        You can use an htaccess file to repoint all old archive links to the new ones in VB3

          Google will spider you once in a while and the active links will get on top of those who don't work.
