I'm in the process of upgrading from phpBB2 to phpBB3. A few years back I installed most all of your mods (the mod_rewrite, RSS, etc.) to the best of my knowledge. The old phpBB2 forum is heavily modded. I already have installed phpBB3 under a different directory for testing before I make the full transfer.
We have quite a few threads on the forum and don't want to loose any urls already indexed in Goog and the rest of the SE's. I also have the problem where I have like 20+ mods from phpBB2 that will not be available for version 3. My main concern is that we don't loose any indexed pages in the SE's. If the programmer can also assist in upgrading any of the other modifications that would be helpful.
Can anyone refer me to a programmer who can do this successfully for me? Will any of the creators of these mods be willing to do this job?
I have a programmer but they are really not familiar with any of the modifications related to this. This is why I am looking to hire someone with specific knowledge about the modifications that released by phpbb-SEO.
Any input would be well appreciated.
