Finally taking a plunge... vBulletin Forum is installed at root, http://www.sikhphilosophy.net What i have done so far... 1. I installed xenforo 1.2.1 in a directory on the root and imported data from vB with no issues and moved the new forum to the root. 2. Downloaded the vbseo-all.xml and generated the rewrite rules from http://tools.geekpoint.net/xfseo/ for the .htaccess file. RewriteEngine on RewriteRule [^/]+/([\d]+)-.+-([\d]+).html showthread.php?t=$1&page=$2 [NC,L] RewriteRule [^/]+/([\d]+)-.+.html showthread.php?t=$1 [NC,L] 3. Downloaded and uploaded Version 6 of the redirection files at the following link: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/redirection-scripts-for-vbulletin-3-x.5030/ 4. Edited the 301config.php and put the following: $fileDir = '/home/******/public_html'; 5. The forum url redirection seems to working fine. eg. Redirect 301 /sikh-sikhi-sikhism http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/forums/sikh-sikhi-sikhism 6. Problem: My typical thread url looks like this: http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/movies-and-cinema/41303-ashdocs-movie-review-the-conjuring.html And it's simply not working! What am i doing wrong? Thanks!
