If you're having problems with that add-on, I'd have to recommend posting in its thread and explaining the problems you're having.

You have standard vB4 style URLs so that add-on should work and would usually be the most straightforward way of handling this. .htaccess modifications are only significant with non-standard URLs (or ones that don't have redirect scripts).

I agree. Those redirect scripts should work.

But if you want rewrite rules then add these rules to the top of the .htaccess file in your web root:

Code:
RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} (^|\?)([0-9]+)-
RewriteRule ^showthread\.php$ /forums/index.php?threads/%2/ [R=301,L]
That should do it.

Thanks I will try and get this to work. I don't really know how to use it but I will post on that thread.
