Not a bug vBulletin 3.8 forumdisplay.php redirection problem


Well-known member
I'm not sure if this is a problem with the importer itself (the archived import log) or with the official Redirection Scripts for vBulletin 3.x that I'm using but here we go:

I have the following config on my XenForo:

Board URL: www.mysite.com/community
Index Page Route: forums/
Route filter: forums/ - sections/
Route filter: categories/ - bigsections/
Create Pages for Categories: true

forumdisplay.php redirections are working fine for forums:
www.mysite.com/community/forumdisplay.php?f=123 is going to http://www.mysite.com/community/sections/music.123/

However if the forum is a category on vBulletin then it doesn't work and produces this weird redirection:
www.mysite.com/community/forumdisplay.php?f=567 is going to http://www.mysite.com/community/forums/567/
The expected result is: http://www.mysite.com/community/bigsections/movies.567/

Please report any problems with an add-on in the add-on itself.

Regardless, we don't redirect categories in the redirection scripts.
