Hi, I need to migrate my forum from XenForo to wpForo. Can wpForo keep my existing URLs? Current URLs are like these:

- Site.com/forums/playstation-games.308/
- Site.com/threads/middle-earth-shadow-of-mordor.680/

Thank you so much.

Hi @mplusplus,

Unfortunately, it's not possible to keep the URL as far as the URL structures of both forums (XenForo and wpForo) are different.

e.g.

1. topic URLs

  • XenForo: Site.com/threads/TOPIC_SLUG.TOPIC_ID/
  • wpForo: Site.com/FORUM_SLUG/TOPIC_SLUG/

2. forum URLs

  • XenForo: Site.com/forums/FORUM_SLUG.FORUM_ID/
  • wpForo: Site.com/FORUM_SLUG/

However, If you contact a professional migration service, they can make 301-redirection from an old XenForo URL structure to a new wpForo URL structure. So don't lose the Google rank. I. e. the old links integrated on Google database will not return 404-page and will show the new according pages in wpForo.

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.
