XF 2.1 VBulletin 4.2 VBSeo to Xenforo2.1

Hello friends,

I moved the forum with Vbulletin 4.2 VBSeo plugin to Xenforo2.1. As is known, XenForo has its own Redirects (1.1.7) plugin. However, this plugin works only if your default VBulletin 4.2 (non vbseo plugin).

If the VBSeo plug-in is already installed and your link structure is built according to the hierarchy in VBSeo, it cannot automatically redirect.

That's why I'm constantly losing hits. I tried solving it with the following code with .htaccess but it didn't.

Old VBSeo forum link structure
http://forum.domain.com/cat-adi/postid-postname.html

New Xenforo forum link structure
https://forum.domain.com/forums/postname.postid/

The htaccess code I tried and work:
#Source: 001 - Hierarchic .html type URLs with content relevant forums and threads
RewriteRule [^ /] + / ([\ d] +) -. + - ([\ d] +). Html showthread.php? T = $ 1 & page = $ 2 [NC, L]
RewriteRule [^ /] + / ([\ d] +) -. +. Html showthread.php? T = $ 1 [NC, L]


I need help on the subject, greetings and sorry for my bad english.

Hi there,

I have an addon that can redirect from DragonByte SEO to XenForo URLs: https://xenforo.com/community/resources/dbtech-dragonbyte-seo-urls-to-xenforo-2.6361/

If you would be willing to register @ my site, I can give you a free license to DBSEO. You could then install that on your vB forum, import the vBSEO URL structure, then run the above linked add-on.

We use this addon @ DBTech to redirect our old vB URLs :)

If this sounds acceptable, feel free to DM me with your username @ DBTech once you’ve registered and I’ll assign the license to your account.

Hello DragonByte Tech,

Thank you for this kind offer. But;

I regret that I used VBSEO in Vbulletin. (See: this topic)
I wish I had used the standard SEO structure.

So for Xenforo, I will also not use an "SEO-URL Rewrite Addons/Plugin".

Sorry for my english.

Regards,
