Thank you! That did the trick perfectly and I've got a 301 permanent re-direct.

redirect through .htaccess

http://webmaster.iu.edu/tools-and-guides/maintenance/redirect-htaccess.phtml

This will also bring up a 301 (permanently move flag) for the search engines.

  

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!

Change of Host

Further to my earlier problem (now solved). My new ISP is supposed to be sorting out the 3 weeks of data missing.

The old address  of the forum was:

http://www.highlandpoultryadoption.co.uk/cgibin/yabb2/YaBB.pl

The new address is now:

http://www.highlandpoultryadoption.co.uk/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl

How do insert a redirection page to the new address. If it was just plain old html it would be no problem, but as it is calling a .pl file I'm a bit stuck.

Thanks,
Graham.
