Redirection Scripts for vBulletin 3.x

Unmaintained Redirection Scripts for vBulletin 3.x 12.0

No permission to download
Compatible XF 2.x versions
  1. 2.0
This add-on is now deprecated and will no longer be maintained.

It is superceded by the vastly more powerful XF301VB:


If you have imported your vBulletin 3.x database into XenForo, you can automatically redirect all traffic destined for your vBulletin content to its new location within XenForo.

All you need to do is unzip these files and place them in the directory within which the vBulletin files with the corresponding names would be located.

Any requests for the old URLs will be redirected with a 301 permanent redirection header.


The included 301config.php file has all of the configuration options and they are documented within.

If you archived your import log table, you must change IMPORT_LOG_TABLE to suit.

Usage if you installed XenForo in a different directory compared to where vBulletin was installed

To do this, simply edit the included 301config.php file, un-comment the $fileDir = '/some/path/here' line and then replace the value for $fileDir with the full path to your XenForo installation, for example:
$fileDir = '/home/example/public_html/xenforo-forum';

Note that the 301config.php, showthread.php, forumdisplay.php and showpost.php files must still be placed in the directory in which vBulletin was installed for this to work.

After upgrading from XF 1.5 to 2.0 I totally forgot about the redirection script. This was for a migration some time ago. So happy that you provide this script for XF 2.0! Thanks.
These scripts are immensely useful to redirect vBulletin threads, posts, members to corresponding XenForo 2.0 threads, posts, members.
However, kindly add the code to redirect "Link Forums" & "Tags".
XF2 version of the always-useful vB redirect scripts. In conjunction with some rewrite rules these can be used to redirect all old URLs.
Migrated from vBulletin 3.8 to Xenforo 2 and this script helped me safe my search engine rankings - thank you very much!
