Linking a subforum to a specific page

  • I’m not sure if this is even possible but here goes.

    I have created a subforum and I want this subforum to be linked directly to a wordpress page. So that when users clicks onto this link, it will take them directly to a page which i have already set up.

    Is this even possible? Any ideas will be grateful.

    So, it needs to be a subforum so it shows up in your list of forums, but when they click it, they don’t get a forum, they get redirected to a WordPress page?

    You could do it with a 301 (permanent) redirection your .htaccess. You would just redirect the old (subforum) URL to the new (WordPress) URL.

    The format would look something like this (assuming pretty permalinks):

    Redirect 301 /forums/forum/subforum-name/ http://www.example.com/your-wordpress-page-slug/

    The first part is relative (just the stuff after the domain name) , and the second part is a full URL. If you get a white screen after adding that to your .htaccess, it means the syntax is wrong and you have to redo it.

    Thanks for the info.

    I’ll give this a go and will update.

    Thanks chrishajer. That worked.
