    I am planing to move XenForo to a directory and have Wordpress as the home page to host the articles. Is there a way to redirect the already indexed content to the new directory?

    I have in the forum several areas with articles and plan to copy that content to Wordpress and leave XenForo with the discussions.

    You can use a simple redirect to redirect pages to the new directory.

    .htaccess in the root directory:

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !-f
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ <newdirectory>/$1
    Note: Untested... Might now work!

    Thanks, but my concern is to redirect only requests from xenforo links. I will install WP in the root, so I don't want ALL request to be redirected.

    It is OK to create a directory called "threads" and put a .htaccess to redirect to the new directory?

    That would've only done xenforo links.

    The htaccess file would have to be in the old directory, for it to work. The one I gave checks if the file exists in the current directory, if it doesn't it redirects to xenForo.

    Someone may be able to come up with a better one...
