Redirect scripts for vBulletin to IPB 4

Hello

we were using showthread.php, showpost.php and forumdisplay.php from the redirect scripts for vB to IPB3, now I need the three redirect scripts for IPB 4.

Were can I find them?

I was thinking that we don't need them, since our migration from vB3 was in 2012, but Google Search Console tells me a different story...

Thanks,
Thomas

These are now built into the converter application, just make sure that you have it upgraded to the latest version and that you have it enabled. You can remove the standalone redirect scripts from your file system.

Thanks, this doesn't seem to work for me.

I can remember during upgrade from 3.4.9 to latest 4.2 there was a message that I don't need the files anymore. So I removed them together with the other IPB 3 files.

But the old URLs don't work anymore:
https://www.mcseboard.de/showthread.php?t=64295
https://www.mcseboard.de/showthread.php?postid=78145

Even when using new Topic IDs I get the same message.

The converter is stil in place, status is showing finished...

What is going wrong here?

Thanks,
Thomas

Open a support ticket, we'll take a look and see what's going on.

1) Don't use the new ids (you need to use the original ids)

2) Make sure the converter application is still enabled in the AdminCP

3) If you still have trouble, submit a ticket as suggested
