A while ago i was asking how to redirect old URL from PHP-Fusion to new SMF2 format.

Now I have similar question :)

How to redirect URLs from IPB3 to SMF2?

Old URL:
http://example.pl/index.php?/topic/631-wymiana-linkami/
New URL:
http://example.pl/index.php?topic=631

RedirectMatch 301 /index.php?/topic/(.*) /index.php?topic=$1

your smf links became something like this (i think)

.../index.php?topic=631-wymiana-linkami (which needs to work too)

Adrek

doesn't work for me:
QuoteInternal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, [email protected]*** and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Apache/2 Server at *** Port 80

but thanks for trying ;)

RedirectMatch 301 /index.php?/topic/(*.) /index.php?topic=$1
It should be .*, not *. I think.
BTW I hate htaccess and it hates me... lol

Looking around I think this should work:
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^/topic/(.*)
RewriteRule ^(.+) index.php?topic=$1 [R=301,L]


Take a peek at what I'm doing! ;D

Now this
http://example.pl/index.php?/topic/114-firefox-pl/page__st__20__gopid__9971#entry9971

is redirected to
http://example.pl/home/***/domains/***.pl/public_html/index.php?topic=index.php#entry9971

Here is small script that IPB Team gives to change links from SMF>IPB, maybe this will help with changing links from IPB to SMF :)

mmm...that should be a bt closer, but not sure what is wrong at the moment.
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^/topic/(.*)
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?topic=%1 [R=301,L]


BTW I think this discussion would have higher visibility in another board like help wanted or scripting help.

If you want to move it go ahead ;)

Still in URL is visible patch from FTP (/home/user/domain.xx/....) :/

Sorry for the double move...

Yep, I realized it's not working (yet)...maybe someone else has an idea on how to fix it...

MrPhil

I'd be happy to take a look at it, but let's start at the beginning. What is the template for the incoming URL, and what do you want to turn it into? Is it still

http://example.pl/index.php?/topic/631-wymiana-linkami/

to

http://example.pl/index.php?topic=631.0

? Is there any SEO involved on the SMF side?

RewriteEngine On
# this has to come before all SMF-related processing
RewriteCond  %{REQUEST_URI}  ^/index\.php\?/topic/(\d+).*$  [NC]
RewriteRule  index\.php\?/topic/(\d+)  /index.php?topic=$1.0 [R=301,L]

might work, as long as it's at the top of /.htaccess, before SMF SEO processing. If it doesn't, it's possible that the Query String is being stripped off at the beginning (if anything after the ? isn't picked up) and/or is being glued back on at the end (get /topic/631-wymiana-linkami/ on the end). In either case, we'll have to try another approach, but first I want to make sure that first URL is correct (/ stuff after a ?).

#13
Now (10 minutes ago...) when owner of this site decided to use SimpleSEF, 'index.php?' is removed from all URLs.

would be best to rewrite:
http://example.pl/index.php?/topic/631-wymiana-linkami/
to
http://example.pl/index.php?topic=631

//edit
and this htaccess from post above doesn't work, it is only thing in file.

MrPhil

When you say "it doesn't work", what is happening? Is it gluing unwanted Query String information onto the end of the URL, or is there no change at all to the URL (pattern not recognized)? It actually says "/index.php?/" and not just "/index.php/"?

This is in the site root / .htaccess file, and not in some subdirectory? I don't know how many times I've beaten my head against the wall trying to diagnose problems, and finally the admin says "Oh, I put it in /forum/.htaccess. No difference, right?".

Adrek

.htacces is directly in public_html (this is root SMF directory).

"It doesn't work" meant that URL is not redirected at all. When I go to
http://example.pl/index.php?/topic/631-wymiana-linkami/
it takes me to
http://example.pl/index.php?/topic/631-wymiana-linkami/
Polskie wsparcie SMF na simplemachines.org

OK, try this:
RewriteEngine On
# this has to come before all SMF-related processing
RewriteCond  %{REQUEST_URI}  ^/index\.php  [NC]
RewriteCond  %{QUERY_STRING} ^/topic/(\d+).*$  [NC]
RewriteRule  ^.  /index.php?topic=%1.0 [R=301,L]


Apparently it's treating everything after the ? as a URL Query String, and stripping it off at the beginning. So, we handle the QUERY_STRING separately.

Adrek

It works! :D
Thank you very much for taking time to solve this!

@emanuele, would be good idea to link this topic in IPB converter topic, that others could use it as well :)

Okay, I'll add a reference to the first post of the converter.
