You are right , but this wasn't my question

you have something installed in the root of your site ?
and you have your forum installed in sub directory /forum ?
anyway,
I will give you a scenario where I have forums installed in subdir /forums

assume you have domain www.domain.com
and vbulletin at www.domain.com/forums

in your admincp change vBulletin URL to www.domain.com instead of www.domain.com/forums
and then use this .htaccess

Tricky but working fine :)

Note : this will not work if your directory is /forum , you can rename in that case

Yes , we are in vb5 discussion forum :D

Thanks a ton for the advice! although just ran into a final issue....after we updated VB url from domain.com/forums (VB installed dir) to domain.com i am not able to access to admincp and the forum breaks (links to css and images dont work) do you have any ideas? thank you

This rule should be in root .htaccess not vbulletin .htaccess

I have made some work
I used $path variable , exploded it and got the last element .. then queried node table for urlident equal to this value .
if true .. this returns node id
Then

I did this for a client who converted from smf with pretty URLs and working fine
I will post the full code when I have access to my home PC tomorrow.
Note : if the URL doesn't end with '/' you have to do additional work in includes\api\interface\collapsed.php'

Would you mind elaborating on the last portion of your above quote? I had VBSEO on VB4 and it worked like a charm, inc. all the extra toys it gave - such a shame they folded up :(

Anyway, I had a url alike to: http://mysite.com/forum-name/thread-title-123.html

i.e. there was no trailing /

##Just something to think about:

The rewrites will redirect people who find your old urls to your new ones but will do nothing for seo and may actually do harm. I believe the best method for seo would be a permanent 301 redirect.

If you want an easy solution DragonByte Seo would work and will add all the redirects, etc. I do not believe they have a version for Vb5 yet though.

Is there any chance you could post your query, too, please? I am new to programming vb5 and while I could work it out, you know how many days that could take me over simply seeing what you are doing and learning the quick way. So, if you have the full code for your solution, that would be ideal.
