    Ok so I've converted another forum, and there are redirection issues with this one, and for the love of me I can't figure it out - I have converted quite a few other forums in the past and never had redirection problems.


    - wordpress sits in the /wordpress directory
    - no .htaccess in the root folder
    - xenforo sits in the /community directory
    - index.php in root is just loading wordpress stuff (calling this : require('./mag/wp-blog-header.php'); )
    - .htaccess in old vbulletin folder (/v3) contents:

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule [^/]+-[\d]+/.+-([\d]+)/index([\d]+).html showthread.php?t=$1&page=$2 [NC,L]
    RewriteRule [^/]+-[\d]+/.+-([\d]+)/ showthread.php?t=$1 [NC,L]
    RewriteRule [^/]+-([\d]+)/index([\d]+).html forumdisplay.php?f=$1&page=$2 [NC,L]
    RewriteRule [^/]+-([\d]+)/ forumdisplay.php?f=$1 [NC,L]
    Redirect 301 /v3/forum.php http://www.dogforum.gr/community
    Redirect 301 /v3 http://www.dogforum.gr/community
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.dogforum\.gr$
    RewriteRule (.*) http://www.dogforum.gr/$1 [R=301,L]
    the uploaded scripts are in their proper place in the /v3 folder, as well as the 301 script with the proper path set to the xenforo directory.

    When i visit one of the old vbulletin url's , for example this:


    it should be redirecting to this:


    but it is going here:


    any ideas what the messup is?
