Hi all,

I have one year ago migrated from PHP-Nuke to Joomla and everything is not better. Miss a lot from PHP-Nuke. During migration I upgraded the forum to phpBB3. This have, however, resulted in a lot of Google errors that uses the old Nuke addresses - I can get 60000 such Google errors a day.

I wonder is it possible to make Rewriterules and automatically change to the new phpBB3 adress?

I have make some tests on a test server that failed

Code:
RewriteRule  ^phpBB3/viewtopic.php?p=([0-9]*) ftopicp-$1.html [L] 


This is for:
ftopicp-196457.html

should become:

phpBB3/viewtopic.php?p=196457

I'm not sure if this works:

Code:
RewriteEngine On

RewriteRule ^ftopicp-([^/]*)\.html$ /phpBB3/viewtopic.php?p=$1 [L]



What it does is...
The original URL: Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!
The rewritten URL: Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

it converts your existing urls to the OLD methode.
My theory behind it is that your SEO indexed urls stil should working?????

Thanks! I have found a simpler solution by adding this line in robots.txt:
Disallow: /ftopic*

A htaccess Disallow rule will only stop search engines who obey robots.txt from crawling those links, it will not help to clean up old links. What you really need to be doing is a 301 redirect so the search engines know the old link is dead and to drop it from the index.
