Really struggling 301 URL's from VBSEO to XF.
I've ported over a big board to XF and I'm struggling with a redirect (tried a combination of all available) to get URL's in this format: http://www.domain.com/forum-name/95805-thread-name.html (001 I believe the setting is called in VBSEO)
To 301 to XF.
I've actually done this half a dozen times before but the most recent was about 18 months ago so I haven't the bloody foggiest how I did it. I've even tried copying my old htaccess and 301redirect.php files etc and the vb4redir add-on available in resources. And have also tried the tool here http://tools.geekpoint.net/xfseo/ and I'm really stuck now.
And starting to get worried.
We have 1.2m posts and 100,000 threads I don't want to be able to not 301!
Can anybody actually help me with what is working currently?
I've added the scripts, found the location of my log file from the import, added that to the 301redirect.php, edited the htaccess (various ways), tried with and without full path to the forum URL (commented it out and tried, then uncommented it and tried).
Tried a couple of versions of the actual redirect scripts.
Can't seem to fathom how I've done this before, or how to do it again!
A fellow admin in need lads! Please help!
