This redirect doesn't need to get the user 100% to the link (if no one can figure out a way to rewrite the URL, redirecting them to the search function will be my next best option). However, if it's possible, I'd like to try...
I'm changing from phpbb3 to Kunena (a joomla plugin), and have already converted all my posts. Now I just need to worry about the URLs. Examples: phpbb3
Unfortunately, I don't believe there is a way to accurately redirect the old links due to the massive change. It is clear that some items match, i.e., the category IDs (4 and 60, in these examples), but the topic IDs are completely different.
That said: does anyone have any ideas for solutions? or in the least, do you guys think I should just redirect them to the search function (as cruel as that may seem)?
I am wide open and in your debt! Thanks for any help at all!
