the forum is expected to go down tonight for a platform changing experience. i am tired of ipb and plan to switch to vb... hopefully this would not bother you guys. would result in a lot of dead links though.
oh yeah i was looking for a solution for that. search engine friendly redirects. even if they are to the homepage of the forum.
you will be buying a new license again.[/b]
heh. have no option. the open source forum softwares are simply not good enough. VB comes highly recommended from a source and i expect to get some help on making the forum more seo friendly. i simply have to kick some guy's ass with this forum.
i am already using that software on tradeshade. it is fabulous i agree. but good for support based forums. also translators are disappointingly buggy. also a lot of data would be lost in shifting to that software. it simply is too bare and basic. and not even in beta.
i would of course keep the backup. running it on a seperate domain? umm would be tough considering the license of this forum is tied to the domain and to move that to a new place could be a bit too complicated.
