XF 1.5 vB4 redirect to a category node


Active member
After having migrated. I'm finding that redirect to vB4 forums that were categories are failing as XF category nodes. One particular category forum has great SEO. It's the number one google result for the search terms, but when you click on it

is being redirected to

which results in an error page. What can I do?

Your best bet is probably to do a rewrite for this specific URL in .htaccess (assuming Apache) so you aren't hitting the redirect scripts (that I assume you're using).

Yeah, I tried several ways of doing it with .htaccess. Couldn't get it to work. Ultimately I ended up editing that forumdisplay.php file with an if-then-else statement. That worked.
