VB4 Redirect problem


Active member

I imported my website from VB4+VBSEO to XF 1.2 yesterday which all went fine, I also setup the 301 redirect scripts that also seemed to work (even without putting the VBSEO rewrites into htacces they seemed to work)

1.The problem I have is if I enable "friendly URL's" in XF when I click on any of the forum links form the forum homepage they redirect to the homepage rather than the forum.

2. If i turn off "friendly URL" the forum links work fine

i think the problem is :
My old VB4 was running off a www.mywebsite.com/forums/
My new XF site is in the root
However the new forum links also by default point to www.mywebsite.com/forums/

So i guess because of this the redirct scripts are being triggered causing the links not to work...

Are you following ;) Is there a away around the issue?

I have another issue now, the main forum links on the homepage (on xf there are "offical forums", "public forums") etc - well after doing the above they now redirect to the homepage rather than the correct part of the page?
