Solved Redirect my old forum to my new forum?

Post by Lioth on April 5th 2013, 5:08 am

Hello again Hello. I've decided to create a new forumotion forum instead of my old one, and I basically want the old one's URL to redirect to my new one.

I use this code inside index_body, replacing all, so that the old forum will redirect to the new one (I didn't include my forums' URLs):

Code:
<html>
<head>
  <title>A web page that points a browser to a different page after 2 seconds</title>
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="2; URL=http://-------------------/">
<meta name="keywords" content="automatic redirection">
</head>
<body>
<a href="http://http://----------------------/portal</a>
manually.
</body>
</html>

The problem is that whenever somebody goes to the old forums' threads [eg. http://------.com/monster-mate-thread/] it won't redirect to the new one and it says "The requested page does not exist".

Have not really tried it out, but you can add such a javascript.
Code:
window.location.href = 'your_url';

There were a few ways provided there, just check which one is working.
