Solved Redirect forum address

Post by DonaDyke July 15th 2009, 2:57 pm

I've recently purchased my own domain name and I've configured the personalized domain name section in the admin panel. However, the forum is now available at both addresses (the forumotion and external one).

I was wondering if there's away to redirect the forum to the external domain ONLY so even when users type myforum.forumotion.net it redirects them to my external address.

Thank you.

Enter this code:
Code:
<meta http-equiv=REFRESH content=0;url=LINK OF WEBSITE HERE>

Replace "LINK OF WEBSITE HERE" With the link of the website you want to redirect it to Wink

Unfortunately, the suggested code does not redirect the forum to my new address. Currently, when I enter the old address there's only a message saying that "The forum does not exist" and that's all Redirect forum address Mouais

Did you start a new forum altogether or did you just change the url?

I did just as you suggested. I simply replaced "LINK OF WEBSITE HERE" in the code with the link of the website I want to redirect the old forum to.

Will you post a link to both sites and label which one you want it to redirect to, please.
