HTML sitemap and vbulletin plugin redirect

#1
Hi

Two questions:

1. Today I use this plugin to rewrite urls (vbulletin 3.8). How do I fix a correct 301 to Xenforos urls? 404 not found on internal and external links is not acceptable...
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=173738

url looks like this
/f2/example-se-t3629/

2. I have been able to find all the plugins I had in 3.8 but not a plugin for a simple HTML sitemap. In vBulletin they called it archive or something, which could link directly to the real thread. Which made the archive into a html sitemap. This is very important as a xml sitemap doesnt make the pagerank flow through a site = less good rankings.

Thanks in advance

Redirection scripts are available for imported forums, or custom rewrites can be created if necessary.

I am not aware of any HTML sitemap add-on.

Can you elaborate on that please? I was thinking maybe it's possible to redirect the urls back to standard vBulletin showthread.php?t= urls with htaccess, and then do another 301 to Xenforo (with this plugin https://xenforo.com/community/resources/redirection-scripts-for-vbulletin-3-x.264/)? Google allows like up to 6 redirects and the users won't notice so I guess it's okay.

But I can't download that file so can't know for sure.

Ok about html sitemap. Weird nobody has made such plugin yet... The seo benefit I would say is huge. Wonder if I could generate all those urls on a simple php page, or even better all /page-xxx urls.
