Redirect no longer working
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!
I have a website built in Ruby on Rails. My site has a webpage, located at “example.com/communityboard”, that you can use to enter a separate Community area. The community area is built with bbPress.
I want users who type in the URL “example.com/community” to be redirected to “example.com/communityboard” . It used to work this way, but for some reason, the redirect no longer works in any browser but IE.
We accomplished this redirect by placing an index.html file in the /community folder where bbPress had been installed. The entire code for the index.html file reads
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=http://example.com/communityboard">
Back when we built the site, I was told that a meta refresh redirect using an index.html file was the best option. The redirect had to address ONLY a single page (http://example.com/community) and not all of the sublevels of the community bb (which lives at http://example.com/community/index.php). Otherwise, the community bb and all of its sublevels would be redirected.
So… my questions:
Why is the meta refresh redirect not working anymore? How can I fix it?
