    Hey DPers,
    I am new to VBulletin. I am going to start a new forum with VB.Bought a VB licence.
    I just want to know is there any way to change my url similer to tread name?
    something like the link is showing now yourdomain.com/id=***, and want to make it yourdomain.com/Thread-Name.
    I know it can be done with VBSEO which i cant effort to buy now.
    If is there any mod or way available, please let me know.

    vb4 has this build in. Go to setting and the option is there.
    Since you got the license, the correct forum to ask this question is over vbulletin.org as there are many experienced user there.

    Bump. Is there a way to do this without vBSEO etc., just via .htaccess?

    E.g. by removing "threads" from the following rule:
    RewriteRule ^threads/.* showthread.php [QSA]
    Code (markup):
    I really don't know anything about it and don't want to mess things up.

    That's a built in feature in VBulletin 4.x.x ... In admin area, under Settings > Options > Friendly URLs. Under URL Type, choose "Mod Rewrite Friendly URLs" ... Once you make this change, copy .htaccess file from \do_not_upload\rewrite\apache2 and upload it to your forum root directory, that's it.

    I am using this on my own forum, and its working like a charm. BTW, this feature doesn't exists in 3.x.x version, and that's one of the reasons, i have upgraded to 4.x.x
