    I converted from IPB to XF but for some reason no user, topics or posts are redirected to new link. If anyone can please help me it would be great!

    Thank you!

    Thank you for posting it here. We've been have a lot of people asking for support in the pre-sales forum and I would suspect many them may not be valid customers of XenForo. So thank you for understanding. :)

    I assume from your original post

    source: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/convert-from-ipb-3-x.42023/#post-475452

    That you are indeed using the IPB redirect script provided here

    The files in question go into your forums root.

    In this case you said your forum was under /public_html/

    So you will need to put those two files there.

    You'll want to look at this addon and the support thread for it:


    The css is posted to make them look like IPB.

    Unlike in some other forum applications, categories and forums are not interchangeable in XenForo. They are different data types. You need to create new nodes of the desired type to replace the old nodes.
