Forums Closed Want to 301 Redirect everything to a closed message

Forums closed due to spam and i want to redirect all the posts in from the forum to a closed message in the root.


and all content from

should go to

I can do the folder just having issues with the content of the folder


Something like this perhaps?

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^forums/(.*) [R=301,L]

Might need to be tweaked a little, I’m not too good with the rewrites :slight_smile:

Since you’re not at all interested in what’s in the URL after /forums and the fact that the URL starts with “/forums” is indication enough to fire the rule, there is no need to tell the regex parser to go and match the rest of the URL (i.e., the /(.*) part), that’s just doing work for nothing.

You can use what Immerse posted, but leave out /(.*) :slight_smile:

(it will work with that code btw)
