htaccess and mod_rewrite rule issue after uninstalling vBSEO

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth

I’m willing to pay if someone can help me resolve this. We had vBSEO installed to rewrite vBulletin URLs and the product is now dead and unsupported. We had to uninstall it due to security and severe performance issues. We implemented vBulletin’s version of “friendly” URLs, but the format is different and it has broken all of our inbound links.

Modifications to the .htaccess file was mentioned in the uninstall instructions for vBSEO.…all-vbseo-238/

There were many options that could be used to rewrite the URLs but I’ve been unable to figure out how to get the URLs working for our existing links.

Here’s a sample link:

New link format:…-pack-question

Old link format:…-question.html

The old forum links had the forum name and Toyota-MR2 in the link. Any ideas on how to make the old format links redirect to the new format?

For reference, we posted the question on as well.…th-mod-rewrite
