  • Answer: Redirect From Old Forum to New Forum

    I posted this as a response but I'm posting it here as a topic because it seems to be a recurring issue and I had to dig outside of and to get the answer.

    With a assist from Jake Bunce of the vBulletin team, who suggested I use the RewriteEngine, I tracked down the solution. I modified the code I found at Here's an example of how to do it:

    To redirect defunct link


    put this in your .htaccess file:

    Options +FollowSymlinks
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^f=16$ 
    RewriteRule ^forumdisplay\.php$ [R=301,L]
