Want to change URL but...

In progress Want to change URL but...

Post by Macca_96 on March 4th 2013, 11:01 am

I need to redirect the old URL to the new URL. Will it do that automatically or do I need to set up an automatic redirect. Eg people who click on old links on other sites that other people have posted will they automatically be redirected to new URL?

Hi! Very Happy

If you're talking about forumotion's URL adress you will be able to acces both URL adresses: the old and the new one. Hovewer, if you will acces the old adress you will be automatically redirected to the new one. Wink

Hello,

You mean that you have changed your forum's address through the Admin Panel ?

To be sure that we're talking about the same thing, the old address won't exist anymore if you change it through :
Admin Panel >> General >> Forum Address.

And, yes, the old one will be automatically redirected to the new one (until someone get this URL).

I think it's better that they change their bookmarks, because this redirection won't be permanent. Wink

Leeloo is correct, so it would be better if you'll tell your members doing this. She said above that the old URL will be automatically redirected to the new one (until someone get this URL).
