On Jan 17, an old and outdated plugin (VBSEO) had to be removed and replaced. This plugin was responsible for the URL Rewrites from ugly things like www.scubaboard.com/forums/showthread.php?t=499437 into nice URL's like -> http://www.scubaboard.com/forums/equipment-and-accessories/499437-handheld-gps.html

While I've tried to make all of the settings between the old program and the new, there are some differences, and some pages may result in 404 (Page not found) errors.

If you are finding 404 Errors, please report them in Site Support.


Included in this plugin was also the "Likes" system. The result of the removal of this plugin (VBSEO) also resulted in the conversion of old likes to a new system. The two likes systems (old vs new) had different storage methods, and there will be some different functionality.


VBSEO (the plugin removed) was horribly outdated, as the company who made it disappeared in 2013. At this point, continuing to use this plugin was a huge security vulnerability for ScubaBoard and its users. With this being the case, removal of VBSEO was the only choice.
