Hi, I got some "URL not found" errors via Google WebmasterTools. Mostly with chinese or cyrillic characters.
The URLs are, for example:

The redirection works quite ok, for example:
Code:
http://www.movilesdualsim.com/foro/forums/36-Experiencias
to
[CODE]http://www.movilesdualsim.com/forums/qualcomm-snapdragon.36/
but the previous code shows the "not found" error.

I tried to look for short paths like "foro/forums/36-Experiencias" in the forum and also via Google, but can't find the links to those sites.
In Google Webmastertools they found no "linked from" site.

Anyone with a similar problem?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for your reply @Jeremy
I migrated to Xenforo last September. Those errors keep coming back:


And the "Linked from" tab shows similar links:


Any idea how can this happen and how can be solved?

It looks like it may be finding some sort of 404 on a page that is a 404 itself.

If it was never a working link, you can likely just ignore it. Otherwise, you may wish to adjust the rewrites that are triggering the redirect to match this case as well so they end up at the new forum URL.

Thanks @Mike
They're too many links. Is there any way to change from
Code:

to

I guess it's changing htaccess, but don't know exactly how.

Thanks for your help!

I believe you can use friendly URLs for this. Do you have them enabled?

That looks like it should redirect based on the regex. It should accept anything after the leading number. I've played with the URL and I haven't found any specific rhyme or reason as to why it's not redirecting; some manipulations cause it to redirect correctly. I'm not sure if it's perhaps an issue with the length of the URL or if something else is causing it. Very strange.
