Link in message pointing to old forum

Hi,

I've just imported a vb3 board to Xenforo. Everything works perfectly as far as I can see so far except there is one particular message that is a list of links to files that are attached to other messages.

If you click on the links you're immediately taken back to the vb version of the linked messages instead of the Xenforo version.

Does anyone know why this is happening and how I fix it?

Regards,
Renada :)

No message content is converted as part of the import process.
You will have to manually update the links to point to the new forum and/or install the vBulletin redirection scripts.

If the problem is related to incorrect attachment IDs, then that is something which will be fixed in the next release.

Ahhh ok thanks Brogan, will plough through and edit all the links :)
