Hello webmasters,

I have a question, I have a forum like this forum, using vbulletin platform

but I have just change to wordpress cms instead of using vbulletin as before.

my problem is all URLs indexed by google like

Code:
http://www.domain.com/forums/95-my-forum-name
http://www.domain.com/threads/6236-my-thread-name
..........................
and 
http://www.domain.com/forum.php
Thus, all these old URls got 404 when I changed forum to wordpress blog.

how to How to 301 Redirect All old URLs to my main domain in Wordpress?

Hi Michele, to redirect all old urls to your main domain, you can use this code in your .htaccess file at Worpdress root directory.

Code:
RewriteRule ^forums\/(.+) http://www.domain.com [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^threads\/(.+) http://www.domain.com [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^forum.php http://www.domain.com/forum/ [R=301,L]
Complete codes for your htaccess file

Code:
# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^forums\/(.+) http://www.domain.com [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^threads\/(.+) http://www.domain.com [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^forum.php http://www.domain.com/forum/ [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
</IfModule>
# END WordPress
Remember to change domain.com to your domain.

Hope this helps! :pioneer:
