I was just wondering if IPB will be making an add-on that we can add when converting our board from ipb 2.3.5 to 3.0.0 that will update all of the links that 2.3.5 uses to the working links that 3.0.0 will be using.
would be:http://forums.invisionpower.com/showforum/298 (Or however the new seo links are suppose to be)
Or will the old links in posts work fine with 3.0?
Just a thought
I don't know the search MySQL syntax... but I've seen it used before.
You could search ibf_posts forhttp://forums.invisionpower.com/index.php?showforum=
and replace it withhttp://forums.invisionpower.com/showforum/
update ibf_posts set post = replace(post,'http://forums.invisionpower.com/index.php?showforum=','http://forums.invisionpower.com/showforum/')
Old links will still work.
The question is HOW they work. They act as fully separate http resources. Instead of sending a HTTP redirect reply to the new url.
This is a very interesting and relevant discussion from both an end-user perspective and the importance of not losing positioning in the search engines. I think the ideal solution would be that the redirects work (either through built-in code within IPB 3 or via .htaccess) that would return an HTTP 301 permanent redirect to the new URL for the best benefit to visitors and SE bots.
