    What about those phpbb with seo url but don't have .html on the url?

    Need some rewrite to use it for non html links. Can not be used out of the box.
    If you really need it you can write me a pm and you can hire me for the needed modification.

    That is redirection. What issue are you having? If you want the title in the URL, that would happen once the user can actually view the thread; otherwise, including the title is an information leakage.

    Hello, but now redirections are false :(
    Do I to rewrite them manually ?

    In what way are they false? It's very difficult to give any recommendations if you're not forthcoming about what's wrong (and what you think should be happening instead).

    First I want to thank you for posting this script.
    I have tried it with xf 1.4.5 and it works great for the forums.

    Like so.
    redirects to:

    But should this be redirecting forums too?
    does not redirect correctly! I expected it to go to:

    Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    The phpbb3 installation will be active ?

    No, the old imported site is no longer required.

    The import scripts will automatically redirect any traffic intended for the site/links.

    Yes, it remains active, but i recommend to disable the old forum after a while when google indexed all your new pages.
