1. First of all, for some reason my user upgrades are not working correctly. I mean I have it all setup correctly, I actually had it working a while a go before, but now when users subscribe through paypal and all, an email comes to my paypal email with everything, like the person's username on the forum and what he subscribed for an all. But he doesn't get the actual upgrade. I am wondering whats up with that, if you guys have any way to troubleshoot this problem please let me know!
2. Are there any other payment systems that we can use instead of just paypal for User Upgrades. I am sorry to say this, but paypal is extremely "stingy" they charge so many fees, and its so easy for users to make chargebacks, as well as they have their own currency rates :O ! Anyways I was wondering if we could use Alertpay or something with User Upgrades. How easy / hard is it to make Alertpay APIs work with xenForo's user upgrade system. If there is already a mod or something that can do this please if you could, provide a link.
vBulletin 4 Redirection Urls
I know there are scripts out there for vBulletin 4 urls redirection. But how do they work? Do they use the database / table made in the database when they redirect urls to the their new url counterpart.
Here is a little story of my forum.
I was first using vBulletin and vBSEO, I was quite happy with it, until vBseo suddenly stopped working. So now all my vBseo urls stopped working, I didn't do anything about it back then and I left it as is. Then I started using vBulletin friendly urls with mod rewrite, and then these urls got indexed quickly. Then I decided to switch to IPB (invision power board), I tried to redirect my vBulletin friendly URLS with mod rewrite, but with no success, so now my vBulletin friendly urls with Mod Rewrite stopped working, after around 1 - 2 weeks I decided to go with xenForo, but before purchasing it or even start using it, I looked at the redirection scripts, it had the IPB redirection script, it looked fine, so I bought xenForo and everything went fine, my old IPB urls were being redirected to the new xenForo urls.
Here comes the problem, google's webmaster tools started displaying a lot of not found urls around 5 thousand, I decided to ignore it, thinking that it will eventually go down, but it started increasing. As of right now there are over 30 thousand not found urls on my website. So now I am wondering, if I am able to somehow redirect those previous vbulletin 4 mod rewrite urls to my xenForo installation or if I could redirect both vbulletin 4 mod rewrite urls and the VBSEO urls. If its possible please please, tell me how. Since I did not directly import from vBulletin to xeNForo, I was not able to make a "table" so not sure how the redirection works, but if it some how is still possible! PLEASE, tell me how.
