Now that ZUG has moved to .org domain and its forums to, one problem appeared. All linked to the old forums in are broken. However this could have been avoided by settings up the following: should redirect to instead of Or should in its turn redirect to

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 redirects to one page, while - to another one.
I agree, this would be great to do. I just don't know how to setup a redirect where if someone where to try to visit and have it redirect to

If you know how to set this up, can you let me know how, or send me an example of how you have setup?

Actualy Laze did redirection setup for me, I will ask him.
Actually its my good friend Peter who helped me..

Edit apache httpd.conf

For all redirects..

<VirtualHost *>
Redirect permanent /

<VirtualHost *>
Redirect permanent /forums/

to be automatically redirected to:

At least now, it will take you to the forums, but not to the specific topic.

Is this possible?
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/(.*)$1 [R,L]

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