Importing large vBulletin forum - URL redirects?

8 posts in this topic

We run a large and established (this is our 10th year) vBulletin 3.8.x forum. We have around 380k threads and 6.2m posts. If we migrated to IPB, would the old threads redirect to their new URLs on IPB? Surely this is a big consideration for companies like ours, where we have years of Google indexed pages and don't want to lose the traffic. Thanks in advance for any pointers.

Great, and it will handle the sub pages (1,2,3... etc) on each thread? I assume it does a 301 redirect via some kind of .htaccess file? If you can clarify that'd be great :)

There are redirect php scripts you leave in place that will redirect the user to the new location using 301 headers. Yes, individual pages are supported.
