[Solved] All redirects goes to root of forum
I just migrated from bbpress to wpforo. I have tested the wpforo and migration quite a lot. After the migration it turns out that the bbpress URLs all directs to the new forum root.
old-forum/topic/topic-name/#post-60989 goes to new-forum/#post-60989
It leaves out the topic and post part. I can't figure out why. I have tried to turn off other plugins, but without any luck so far (got a redirect and permanentlink plugin running)
Thanks for a nice forum 🙂
Make sure the wpForo base URL is not the same bbPress /forums/ . Also please note, the slugs (last part of permalinks) are the same when you do migration from bbPress to wpForo. So wpForo rewrite rule automatically redirects to wpForo forums and topics. You should disable bbPress once wpForo is activated.
In case you want to say thank you !)
We'd really appreciate and be thankful if you leave a good review on plugin page. This is the best way to say thank you to this project and support team.
Thanks for the answer. It is very usefull.
I am still challenges by getting wpforo's URL structure:
To match the one from bbpress
I don't know how to get the fixed "topic" name to match the variable wpforo forum name. I prefer to keep the bbpress URL's for SEO reasons.
It seems like the hard coded forum slug in bbpress is the problem. I added a bit of code to the the redirect plugin (locally) and it seems to work now. I am basically getting the forumid for the topic and then finds the forum url. Afterwards, I concatenate the forum and the topic slug. The script takes care of the rest.
The replies are not migrated. I guess that is possible, but probably ok not to do that.
