However, all I need now is for one of you htaccess gurus to correct a rewrite rule for me. I will add the rule to the top of my existing vb htaccess.
RewriteRule ^[^/]+/([0-9]+)-[^\.]+\.html$ /forums/threads/$1/ [R=301,L]

I have tried the redirect xf scripts and associated instructions without success but I am sure the correct rewrite rule will do the job.
Any help would be much appreciated please.
