I am trying to do what I thought would be a basic redirect in htaccess but am having a lot of problems. Basically, I've changed my structure so that now for a category the permalink is http://www.soundsandcolours.com/travel instead of http://www.soundsandcolours.com/cont...bjects/travel/ so I am trying to create a Rewrite Rule to do the redirect. Is there any way to create a simple rule that will do this redirect for all of my categories? My attempt at trying to do the redirect for just the Travel directory is below but this wasn't working. I've also tried countless examples on forums and tutorials but can't seem to get it working right. Any ideas why?

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
RewriteRule ^content/subjects/travel(/.*)?$ /travel$1 [L,R=301][L,R=301]
