  • 301 redirect of old phpBB posts when migrating to VB. Possible?

    I really love VBulletin, I tried it for some days and it is perfect for me!
    But my actual forum is in phpBB and I don't want to lose search engine rank of each post.

    So, is there a tool that automatically creates a 301 redirect of every old post to the new address of VB?

    If you tell me that there is something that do it automatically, then I will buy VB instantly!

    We do not provide an officially supported option to redirect the old URL's to the new ones, but there is this unsupported script:

    Change CKEditor Colors to Match Style (for 4.1.4 and above)

        vBulletin.org access (to downloads) requires ownership of a vBulletin license. Sorry...
        To be updated...

          Unfortunatelly you cannot try it without the vBulletin software and you do not have it yet.
          Do you?


          vB5 is unequivocally the best forum software, but not yet...

            I don't have vbulletin, but if I'd see the code inside the script I can see if it does what I really need.
            That is: 301 redirect handled with database and not with .htaccess

              Sorry, you need a vBulletin License to download modifications.
