Description:

This addon expands upon the existing vB3 URL redirection scripts to support the Standard, Basic, Advanced and Mod_Rewrite modes available in vB4.

Currently supported URLs include:

  • Forums
  • Threads
  • Post permalinks
  • Members
  • Attachments
  • Print thread view

Installation:


Standard, Basic or Advanced URLs:

  1. Upload contents of standard-basic-advanced/upload folder to your forum root.
  2. If your URLs are not working, follow these instructions: http://xenforo.com/help/import-redirection/
  3. If you are using nginx and Advanced mode URLs, you may need the following rewrites:
    Code:
    rewrite ^/showthread.php /showthread.php;
    rewrite ^/forumdisplay.php /forumdisplay.php;

Mod_Rewrite URLs:

  1. Upload contents of standard-basic-advanced/upload folder to your forum root.
  2. If your old rewrite rules are still in place, your URLs may work at this stage. If not, continue to install a route-based alternative: (and be sure to disable any remaining vB4 rewrite rules as they may interfere with the routes)
  3. Upload contents of mod_rewrite/upload folder to your forum root.
  4. Install the addon XML file mod_rewrite/addon_vB4Redir.xml
  5. If your URLs are not working, follow these instructions: http://xenforo.com/help/import-redirection/

(Optional) Change of directory:

Follow these instructions if you wish to also change your forum directory when moving from vBulletin. A basic understanding of rewrite rules is required - these are just examples. To specify the root directory, swap out /old-dir/ or /new-dir/ for /

Standard, Basic or Advanced URLs:

Apache: (untested)
Code:
RewriteRule ^/old-dir/showthread.php /new-dir/showthread.php
RewriteRule ^/old-dir/forumdisplay.php /new-dir/forumdisplay.php
Nginx:
Code:
rewrite ^/old-dir/showthread.php /new-dir/showthread.php;
rewrite ^/old-dir/forumdisplay.php /new-dir/forumdisplay.php;
Mod_Rewrite URLs: (Note that these are only tested with the route-based redirection system)

Apache: (untested)
Code:
RewriteRule ^/old-dir/threads/ /new-dir/threads
RewriteRule ^/old-dir/forums/ /new-dir/forums
Nginx:
Code:
rewrite ^/old-dir/threads/ /new-dir/threads;
rewrite ^/old-dir/forums/ /new-dir/forums;
