With the new forum the URL changes from
* http://starsautohost.org/sahforum/...
* http://starsautohost.org/sahforum2/...

And it looks like it will stay this way (for ever or still a while).

Unfortunately this breaks all old links to forum posts. The old hands will just add the "2" to the old URL but new users will go amiss.

A way to solve this would be to redirect all old URLs to the new place. This should be rather easily done in the .htaccess file with "mod_rewrite". Well, somehow "easily" because while I know it can be done easily, I nevertheless would need to dive into the exact how-to first. But I am sure that we have enough people here who can write the code line(s) within 5min.

@Ron, wouldn't that be an intersting solution?

Can anybody spell out the code line which needs to be added to the htaccess file?
