    I have a link in vBulletin that looks like this:
    For some reason this pdf link has not been transformed to a clickable link in vBulletin. After test migration to Xenforo the status of the pdf link was still the same. But when I edited the post and saved it again, the pdf link was turned into a real working link. Is it possible with some script to go through all posts and edit and save name to get all links clickable?

    Auto-linking only works at save time. The import does not auto-link a post if it is not already linked.

    You can use this tool to create links out of plain text URLs:


    This requires regex ability. If you need help with specific replacements then I need to see some specific examples of imported posts from your forum.
