    Hey Andy, man the site is looking and working better, actually the best of the affiliate forums imo. I really like the new features and it seems more dynamic. Anyway I would definatly 301 redirect this http://www.affiliateguarddog.com/community/forum.php << is my old bookmark to the forums. People that refuse to update bookmarks, both in browser and on bookmarking sites, would appreciate having it redirected to http://www.affiliateguarddog.com/community/

    Best,

    Jared

    Thank you. I will talk to the developers to have them redirect.

    Andy it's easy to do yourself.

    In your .htaccess file add this:

    redirect 301 /community/forum.php http://www.affiliateguarddog.com/community/

    MUST leave a single space between the 301 and /
    MUST also leave a space between forum.php and http

    Or easier yet, just copy/paste my code above ;)

    Thanks for the code - implemented :) I only worried about the developers doing it because they redirected all the old vBulletin content to match up with xenForo. I didn't want to mess anything up :) But - that shouldn't, so I implemented. Thanks again!

    Unlike the above, which is a basic 301 redirect, your developers would have used an elaborate redirection formula to redirect consursive folders and pages. The above wouldn't interfere with that code ;)
