I am not a technical person , so I am wondering this:
Our vB3.8 powered website is one of the most popular forum-only sites in The Netherlands (6.8 million hits p/mnth, 100.000 unique visitors): this is quite big for a non-commercial site in such a relatively small country. Anyway, because of our popularity a lot of external sites/forums link to our discussions.
My question is: what will happen to those links if we decide to switch to XenForo in the future?
Do the current links like http://www.mysite.nl/forum/showthread.php?t=11911 posted on external sites then still point to the correct discussion on a XenForo powered platform?
