Thank you for your reply.

These links come from an RSS feed for phpBB (it is a phpBB mod).
If this is custom functionality and not supported by phpBB natively and therefore not covered by the product, I will be happy to pay for the extra time/programming that may be required, please let me know how much that will be and how to proceed.

Thank you!

Troubles you are encountering come from RSS feed (URIs are wrong). I recommend you to contact the author of this mod to correct this issue.

Thanks - will try to go through that route.

One other note - I have some links from a year ago (phpbb3) that look like this - these should be native but don't convert. Any suggestions?

As always, appreciate it.

Such URIs are not native, but by redirecting e.g. viewtopic.php?f=103&p=449551&t=48803 to viewtopic.php?f=103&p=449551 you will get what you want.

For other issues please use separate thread.

Thank you - will do.

I am not very technical - any suggestions how to accomplish this in the .htaccess? :oops:
I tried for 35 minutes but have not gotten very far.

Is there a resource/reference you would recommend to read?

You will have to add into .htaccess file Rewrite Rules like:

Code: Select all

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^f=([0-9]*)&p=([0-9]*)&t=([0-9]*)$
RewriteRule ^viewtopic.php$ viewtopic.php?f=%1&p=%2 [L,QSA,R=301]
