    Hi Guys

    Ok so i have moved to this new forum but i was on mybb latest version before the move.

    My problem is now is sorting the 301 redirects. I have kep to the same directory (/forum) But i am unable to make the redirect properly.

    my old seo links was /forum/Thread-Waitrose for example. And my new ones are /forum/threads/waitrose.774/

    is there anyway around this to sort it?

    n :)

    Do you still have the old MyBB Database + save the import logs (unless you retained IDs)?
