I have a few weird pages that I would like to redirect to a different page.
Below is an example of one of them. When I put the following into the .htaccess file it still comes up with a 404 error, page not found.
I am assuming that it is because htaccess does not like so many parameters in the url.
Perhaps this is a clue:
Redirect 301 http://www.websitenamel.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=106%3Amonster-memory-microsd-&Itemid=1&tmpl=component&type=raw http://www.websitename.com/skus/4gb-microsdhc-class-4-memory-card-usd-0004.html
When i paste in the old domain it seems to completely ignore the redirect and stays on the same page with the 404 error "page not found". With this message "404 - Article #106 not found"
Since article 106 is in the url I think everything after "view=article&id=106" is being ignored????
FYI I am redirecting to the same domain. (I modified the domain for EE for security reasons.)
It's on a Linux box.
