  • PHPBB 2 URLs

    Hello,
    I'm interested in purchasing vBulletin, and I own an existing community.
    I heard you can import all of the users and posts to vBulletin which is great, but what about the old URLs? I mean, vbulletin has showthread while phpbb has viewtopic in the URL, etc.
    I have a couple of threads linked from around the web and I can't lose that traffic, is there any solution for that? Some redirection, maybe?

    Thanks.

    I believe, and this will have to be confirmed, however, I believe that IMPEX has a cleanup utility that can do a find and replace...

      Actually there is an unsupported 404.php included in the ImpEx download that can be customized to perform redirects for you. You can read about it in this thread:
