XF 1.4 Remove /forums/ + redirect from old VB

#1
Hello, I've installed xenforo in the example.com/forum/ folder, so I'd like to remove the /forums/ that appears in URL, as final url forum at the moment is example.com/forum/forums/. The only way to do this is to move xenforo to the root? I prefer to avoid this solution as I've wordpress installed on the root and I'd like to keep things separated.

Also, I'm moving from a vbulletin installation with custom URL. vbulletin was also on another domain name.

URL for forums in that old domain were:
old-domain.com/forum/idF-forum-name

URL of threads:
old-doimain.com/forum/idF-forum-name/idT-thread-name

Where idF means forumID and idT means threadID.

Is it possible to do a redirect 301 via htaccess to the new xenforo URLs?

Thanks!

In terms of the URLs, you can't remove the "forums" portion but you can change it to something with route filters.

A 301 redirect would be possible. As an example, though you may need to modify the redirects for your format specifically, you can see the tool here that can generate them: http://tools.geekpoint.net/xfseo/
