How To 301 Thread URL To Help Page URL?

I am expanding my help pages and want to delete the threads that once housed help content, but I would like to 301 redirect that existing thread to the new help page.

So how would a rewrite be done to redirect:

threads/thread-title.14107 >>> help/about

Add this to the top of your htaccess file:

Redirect 301 /threads/thread-title.14107/ /help/about/
If your forum is in a subdirectory then you might have to add the path:

Redirect 301 /forum/threads/thread-title.14107/ /forum/help/about/

Beautiful Jake, much appreciated mate. It was the folder that was screwing me over... I have the forum installed in /c/ and hadn't included it, based on the premise as the .htaccess was also in /c/ thinking it wasn't required. But works now with it included...

Thank you very much.
