    Hi all, I have moved to Xenforo from VBulletin 4 and I am running Nginx and VBulletin was using "Advanced Friendly URL's".

    I installed this mod -

    http://xenforo.com/community/threads/vbulletin-4-x-url-redirection.7584/

    And added these re write rules to nginx -

    Code:
    rewrite ^/showthread.php /showthread.php;
    rewrite ^/forumdisplay.php /forumdisplay.php;
    
    It seems to nearly work but if you navigate to an old url like this -

    Code:
    http://domain.com/forumdisplay.php/31-Tow-Vehicles
    You end up here -


    Code:
    http://www.domain.com//forums/31/
    The problem is the double forward slash "//" if I remove one of the slashes the redirect works fine.

    Does anyone have any ideas how to correct the rewrite rule to only have one slash?

    Any ideas appreciated!

    Don't I feel crazy!!!

    Fixed it myself I had a trailing slash in my domain name :) in the site preferences.

    Have we all been here?

    Mods please delete the thread I certainly can't!

    Lack of sleep porting from VBulletin to Xenforo is where I lay the blame :)!

    But in all honesty I can't as it was such a simple process if I just peeled my eye lids open enough to see what I was doing :)!
