    I switched from phpBB to bbPress recently thanks very much in part to a script found in these forums.

    Now, many of the existing posts contain links to each other in the old phpBB format /topic.php?t=123. Since the topic IDs have stayed the same in the conversion process, I’d like to use ModRewrite to automatically redirect to the new /topic/123 URL scheme. I’ve tried the following in my .htaccess, but it doesn’t appear to work. (Admittedly, my knowledge of ModRewrite is shaky at best.)

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule ^/forums/viewtopic.php?t=([0-9]+)$
    /forums/topic/$1 [R]

    (In the real code there isn’t a linebreak on the second line.)

    Does anyone have any advice?
