Converted vBulletin4 -> IPB - forwarding problem

2 posts in this topic

Hi All,
I converted my forum across from VB4 -> IPB and it all went well. However I can't seen to get the URL's from the old board to forward on automatically to the new IPB version?

EG. A thread with the URL:
Any ideas? I checked the config file for the vbulletin4.0 links which you copy into the Vb directory, and both the IPB URL and HOME directories are set correctly! For the Record: Old VB Directory: [url="http://www.xfalcon.com/forum/"]http://www.xfalcon.com/forum/[/url] New IPB Directory: [url="http://www.xfalcon.com/forums/"]http://www.xfalcon.com/forums/[/url] Thanks in advance...

When clicked on becomes:

[CODE]http://xfalcon.com/forums/forum/showthread.php?40075-Photography-Competition&goto=newpost


It 404's.


When I go to my IPB forum and go to open the same thread, the URL is actually:

In the config.php file you've dropped into your VB directory, try removing the 'forum' from the URL / Path settings or if its 'forum' change it to 'forums' for now.

I think its just a small problem like that causing it to 404 out.
