I'm working with a client who wants to move a vb3.8.7 site to XF during the month of April.
We have already worked out custom modifications and styles, etc. One thing I have not done yet, that I would like a little assistance on is redirection of old links from sub-domain to root level domain.
vb3.8.7 w/vbSEO 3.6.0 - Using mostly generic settings, nothing fancy.
Current forums are at a location like: forums.domain.com
Home page is currently vBAdvanced, sitting at www.domain.com
Redirecting all forum.domain.com pointers to www.domain.com
What I know:
- There are vb3.8 redirection rules available
- There are vBSEO redirection rules available.
What I would like to know:
- Recommended configuration of rewrite/.htaccess rules to point all traffic to the new forum location where XF will run from, with all the imported data from vb3.8.
Looking for any pointers that could save some headaches going into this. The site is about 2m posts with a significant amount of content that has links coming in from all over the place.
Thanks in advance for any assistance on my inquiry.
