    what is the rewrite url to redirect a specific forum section (and all its post), to another URL?

    Thank you,

    What are you trying to do?

    Threads and posts don't have the forum id or name in the route, so it's not possible with a single rule.
    You would likely have to add a specific rule for each thread.

    Hello Brogan,

    my client wants close a forum, and redirect some forum sections, to another URL's. So, are theren't other way to make this? The only solution, is set specific rule for each thread?

    More or less. When a thread is removed (which happens when a forum is removed), it'll just start returning a 404.

    I see.

    1) So, If I remove the forum, can't I set a permanent redirect and redirect all the forum (in subdomain) to the main domain?


    Redirect permanent /subdomain http://www.maindomain.it/
    2) And if I don't remove the forum the redirect to the main domain, will work?

    Thank you
