XF 1.5 Can't access the geekpoint tool

I am trying to create the htaccess rules for my site. Moving from Vbulletin/VBseo to XF.

I have been suggested to use this tool but can't access it. Is there any alternative?


My rules are:

RewriteRule f[\d]+/.+-([\d]+)/index([\d]+).html /forum/showthread.php?t=$1&page=$2 [NC,L]
RewriteRule f[\d]+/.+-([\d]+) /forum/showthread.php?t=$1 [NC,L]
RewriteRule f([\d]+)/index([\d]+).html /forum/forumdisplay.php?f=$1&page=$2 [NC,L]
RewriteRule f([\d]+)/ /forum/forumdisplay.php?f=$1 [NC,L]

Sample old URL is: http://balipod.com/owning-property-bali-f43/rainy-hendriany-notary-sanur-t2689.html

which is redirecting to: https://balipod.com/forum/forums/owning-property-in-bali.43/ instead of: https://balipod.com/forum/threads/rainy-hendriany-notary-in-sanur.2689/

The script seems to work fine as URLs like this work: https://balipod.com/forum/showthread.php?t=2689

These are the settings I have in Dragonbyte SEO

Form path: [forum_title]-f[forum_id]/

Custom forum URLs: [forum_title]-f[forum_id]/

Well, if I could just get the thread URLs to work I would be happy with that. Appreciate any suggestions.

Based on your example URL, I believe your second rewrite rule should be:
RewriteRule f[\d]+/.+-t([\d]+)\.html /forum/showthread.php?t=$1 [NC,L]
You have a "t" before the thread ID.
