I currently use a Joomla installation on my main url and have xenforo on a subdomain:
When I moved from vbulletin over to xenforo, I installed redirects from old vb URLs successfully to the new Xenforo installation. Those redirects are still in place and I do not want to loose them.
I now want to use the Xenporta 2 plugin to get rid of my Jomla installation on the main domain. But would love to have the portal page still on the main domain name. It seems that this is not possible because of technical reasons, since XF is installed on the subdomain.
Now I am thinking about moving the XF forum from the subdomain to the main domain as it would be the "classical way" of installing Xenforo.
But I do not want to make mistakes regarding SEO rankings and valid redirections. So how do I do this?
How can I move the whole forum to the main domain without loosing traffic and the old redirects of old vbulletin forums?
At the end it shall be in the future like this:
In the past it was like this: www.forum.mydomain.com
I will delete the subdomain after the switch or if I have to keep it for the redirects than I keep it.
Can anybody advise me on how to do it?
