Thanks to @Jake Bunce, I'm almost finished with the huge and nerve-wracking job of importing my old SMF forum to xenforo (Jake handled this with aplomb, I should note). The old forum resided in the root (public_html) directory. The new xenforo board resides in /forum. Jake created an .htaccess file with this redirect in it in order to ensure that links to threads on the old board point correctly to the new board: Code: RewriteEngine On RewriteRule ^index\.php/topic,([0-9]+)\.[0-9]+\.html$ /forum/showthread.php?t=$1 [R=301,L] However, what this .htaccess doesn't do, and I need it to, is redirect users who go to http://poetrycircle.com or http://www.poetrycircle.com to http://poetrycircle.com/forum. Could anyone tell me what I need to add to the htaccess file that jake wrote so that not only the old threads are correctly re-routed but also people going to the base url now go to poetrycircle.com/forum? Thanks in advance.
