    Going to be taking http://www.fordforumsonline.com from vB 3 to xenForo but all the forums do not use the forum id in them. Is there a way, besides grabbing each one by one, to redirect these to their new forum url?

    That doesn't redirect forums without the ID in it. I have used that before.

    Forum Paging Unsupported url format.

    Ah, OK didn't realise that, I just did a search for vbseo and that looked like it might have done the trick.

    Normally you would redirect them manually with separate rewrite rules for each forum URL.

    Another option might be to specify a "URL Portion" for each forum in XenForo thereby removing the id number from the URL. Then you can setup a generic rewrite rule if the URL portion matches what is in your vBSEO URLs.
