  • Redirect links within posts: phpbb to vbulletin

    I am upgrading a PHPBB 2.x -> vB 3.6.8 PL2. Everything is smooth, upgrade is ok, but, all the links inside the forum will be lost.

    Is there a way to .htaccess redirect all those links? Or to mass change the links to new system? AND to keep the same topic/thread/post number?

    link example:
    PHPBB: viewtopic.php?t=1744

    vBulletin: showthread.php?t=329

    Unfortunately there is no easy way to do that because the threadids / postids are not preserved during the import.

      But there is a hard way? Don't tell me to manually edit every single thread id ... because I think it's not worth it.

        You could create a custom PHP script that redirects people to the new URLs based on threadids in the database. If you have some coding ability then you can post on www.vbulletin.org for help.
