    XF 2.1 flexibility in how Youtube media displays

    Often a YouTube url placed like: I am adding a space. http:// youtube.com/watch?v=Zcb90uv4Gwg is changed by Xenforo to a MEDIA /MEDIA code And then it shows the actual youtube in the post. (I could place this in pic, but I think it is understandable.) Sometimes this is excellent...

    XF 2.1 Sub-forums display style per node

    Thanks for bringing this up. In many cases, not all, I would like the Forums underneath a category to only populate when the Category is clicked. This keeps the front page uncluttered. Right now, I am only accomplishing this by making a Traffic Cop forum, and placing the other forums as...

    XF 2.1 plan B when the migration redirections flop - special landing page

    The emphasis has changed to having Google crawl the new site using the site map, which is supposed to take from four days to four weeks. Robots.txt is probably correct from Xenforo. It was easy to have Google verify the new site and to submit the Xenforo site map. If I do some extra stuff...

    is XenForo good to buy ?

    Incidentally, the informality and friendliness and skill-level on this forum was a factor in making the switch. As soon as I explained my situation, I got solid offers of assistance, and also professional references also that I could check out. On a "new buy" level, overall, there really is...

    XF 2.1 plan B when the migration redirections flop - special landing page

    Yes, I join the discussion of that add-on on p. 11: https://xenforo.com/community/threads/xenforo-redirects-for-vbulletin.142137/page-11 The add-on is not supported, and when I tried to use it, it did not work. Thus, I am looking for a Plan B.

    is XenForo good to buy ?

    For me the impetus to move to Xenforo was annoying quirks in my vBulletin 4.2 that would at times looks a thread to simply a white page. And my forum is basically simple, text, and pics, low volume, more like a research spot. This might have occurred on threads that have 5++ pictures...

    XF 2.1 plan B when the migration redirections flop - special landing page

    Redirection problems often occur after migrations. The vBulletin redirection add-on is no longer supported, this was a change made fairly recently. And there does not seem to be any straightforward trouble-shooting tech way to try to resolve the problem, even if the import table looks to have...

    XenForo Redirects for vBulletin

    Thanks. Ok, I have an inquiry in as to how that is handled. It would be nice to know exactly where the file name is placed, is it something you can (incorrectly) leave blank, and what the screen looks like. If that can be improved, I may redo the import, after a redo of the DNS. (Basically, no...

    XenForo Redirects for vBulletin

    Another help would be to trap the Google no-find searches and redirects that go to: ============================================== Not Found The requested URL /showthread.php was not found on this server. Apache/2.4.25 (Debian) Server at www.purebibleforum.com Port 443...

    XenForo Redirects for vBulletin

    Here are some questions. :) Help on #s (1) and (3) would be especially appreciatedd. ================ 1) What table do the redirections end up using in Xenforo?, I would assume it is not the import log file with vbulletin in the name, so where are the actual redirection tables...

    XenForo Redirects for vBulletin

    Anyone who thinks they have a sense of this redirection thing, holla. Maybe the MYSQL file can be viewed (Navicat, CSV, etc.). Wonder if there is a way to do manual redirection? Working off a printout and using cut-and-paste. (This would be the resulting table inside Xenforo.) Figuring this...

    XenForo Redirects for vBulletin

    Nah, none forwarded. The only one that worked was one where Google was showing the ip number, rather than the url name. Do I have any plan B? It was curious that there was no confirmation or time delay. Presumably Google might catch up over time. Plus I can use, and maybe enhance by...

    XenForo Redirects for vBulletin

    Hi, After the Redirection Add-on is placed in its new home: I am trying to do vBulletin import log table: Where two file choices are offered. xp_post_backup import_log_vbulletin4_1 The first one is not an import table, I am told The second one allows me to hit "Save" but nothing visible...

    No pressing case. My particular use was simply very informal analysis, and often you go back and add urls and other information after the first pass.

    XenForo Redirects for vBulletin

    Thanks, that simplifies the question. We don't have to worry about "catching" any information earlier.
