    In reality, you can't. See this for more details:-

    and perhaps this:-

    And I give you big hugs. <3

    I thought you might be thinking of the days when the code was encrypted.

    Yes, it seems I was. I looked at vBSEO back in 2005/2006 when I started my forums. At that time the source code was encrypted, the features were not very well documented and they had an obscure "give us your login and we'll make some magic changes to your source code" service. But it seems they changed all this around 2007. It's visible source and there's a reasonable feature list. I apologize for spreading outdated FUD.

    From vBSEO -> vB urls, you'd have to 301 redirect (if you meet the requirements within your vBSEO urls) to the vB urls of your choice, but you would still have to be re-indexed because of the url structure change. You really can't avoid that, but that's the "safe" way of doing things.

    So as an owner and happy user of vBSEO, will I be able to continue to use vBSEO for my URL re-writing and disable any VBulletin SEO?

    I'd like the new expensive VB4 to take the place of vBSEO, but somehow I have the feeling it's not as robust. Another "feature" to disable
    vBSEO did announce that they will be fully compatible with vB4 and there is an option to keep vB3 style urls which will probably be one of the requirements for vBSEO, but don't quote me on that. You could always ask on their forums since this is more or less specifically about vBSEO rather than vB itself.

    Yes you can. It's one simple setting.

    You're misinformed.

    Every single URL rewrite setting is editable in the vBSEO control panel. All that one needs to rewrite from one to the other is a bit of htaccess knowledge, and the presence of the 'id' variable.

    (How exactly can visible source code be 'secretive'?)

    Given that none of the new vBulletin options match any of the vBSEO ones, it would at least require a .htaccess file to convert from the vBSEO versions to the vB ones.

    That would only be possible if you currently use thread_id/member_id/post_id variables in your current vBSEO setup.

    There are four preset options, but that's about it. http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/blog.php?b=2348

    Hi, I don't know if vB url rewriting's rules are editable but you can use htaccess file for support vBSeo urls.
