XF 1.3 Changing board numbers to names?

    Am currently importing a vb3 to XF, would like to keep existing board URLs as names, ie:


    However, the import appears to keep forum URL's as numbers.

    I can't find a way to edit the forum URL to a name, like when you create a one from new in the node tree.

    So I've tried to use route filters to do this, but I appear to be doing something wrong:

    replace: forum/38/ with: forum/general-discussion/

    Any advice appreciated! :)

    Include Content Title in URLs
    With this disabled, a URL such as /threads/my-thread.128/ would exclude the title and be output as /threads/128/

    Cheers for the reply, Fred!

    The only thing is, I only want the forums themselves to have content titles, ie, /general-discussion/ while leaving posts and threads as just ID's.

    I'm just not sure how to edit the forums to names.

    You assign names to forums via the URL portion for the node.

    Terribly sorry about that! I was trying to edit root nodes first! :oops:
