XF 2.2 vbulletin import and changed urls redirect question


New member
Short version - imported my vb3 board to xf2.2, backed it up and moved hosts. Installed on new host and decided to drop the subdomain as well so url went from forums.domain.com to just domain.com

I set up a domain redirect on the domain so if you type in forums.domain.com it will automatically redirect to domain.com but even after installing the vb redirect add-on and selecting the import logs the redirect links only work if they were entered as domain.com/showthread.php?t=123456 not forum.domain.com/showthread.php?t=123456

Is there a setting i'm missing somewhere? I hope that makes sense.
