After uninstallation you can also redirect your indexed content to original vBulletin urls. Please carefully check the rewrite rules and use the one that fits your current url structure. If your url structure isn't listed below please post a sample example so we can supply the correct rules.

If you have your thread rewrite rules set as forum-name/threadid-threadname.html use the following .htaccess

RewriteEngine on 
RewriteRule [^/]+/([0-9]+)-[^/]+\.html$1 [L,R=301]
If you have your thread rewrite rules set as forum-name/threadname-threadid.html use the following .htaccess
RewriteEngine on 
RewriteRule [^/]+/[^/]+-([0-9]+)\.html$1 [L,R=301]
If you have your thread rewrite rules set as forum-name/threadname-threadid/ use the following .htaccess
RewriteEngine on 
RewriteRule [^/]+/[^/]+-([0-9]+)/$1 [L,R=301]

How do you fix:

Try this:

RewriteRule ^f([0-9]+)/$ forumdisplay.php?f=$1 [L,R=301]
