Solved If members type old address, will they be redirected to new?

Post by Jedisobe on September 18th 2011, 9:52 pm

Hi, I have a question for me and the rest of my administrators. We are planning on purchasing a domain for our forum, but we are wondering if members type the old address in, will it redirect them to the new address?

Thanks a bunch!

It has done that for me, have you changed your URL before?

I don't see that. Does it only appear after you buy the domain?

Yes, after you have bought the domain name the option appears.
