i have to change a existend forum with 40k topics and 10 forums.
The problem is, that the seo ultimate url mod was installed with "folder" forum url AND without "ID Delimeter"
example: test.com/my-forum/ instead of test.com/my-forum-f2.html
I know, that with this folder solution and without the "ID Delimeter" the zero dupbliate mod will not work for forums. no 301 possible because the ID is missing.
But I have to switch now to the forum url solution "test.com/my-forum-f2.html" - because i like the ID option in url more. I need automaticly redirects in forums also. U newer know how the people link to you
I have to add the redirect manually to the htaccess:
RedirectPermanent /forum/my-forum/ http://www.test.com/my-forum-f2.html
But the redirect dont work, always a ?forum_uri=my-forum&start= is attached. I tried it several ways. top of the httacces..bottom of the htaccess. over php in the header. always the same.
How can i add manually 301 redirects to the htaccess.
Thank you very much for a quick reply. I hope there is any solution.
