Now that ZUG has moved to .org domain and its forums to oesf.org, one problem appeared. All linked to the old forums in zaurususergroup.com are broken. However this could have been avoided by settings up the following:

http://www.zaurususergroup.com/forums should redirect to http://www.oesf.org/forums instead of http://www.zaurususergroup.com/forums. Or http://www.zaurususergroup.org/forums should in its turn redirect to https://www.oesf.org/forums

In any case all links to the old forums in .com domain would still work! There are lots of links to the ZUG forums on the net these days and it's a pity to break them all at once.

I'm sure this is very easy to set up, since I have similar configuration for cacko.biz: http://cacko.biz/cacko redirects to one page, while http://cacko.biz/cacko/feed - to another one.

Should be - you can use apache's mod_rewrite to do anything you want to URLs if you can write the appropriate regular expression. Something like this:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^/forums/(.*) https://www.oesf.org/forums/$1 [R,L]

stuck before the basic redirect might be all that's needed.
