URL redirect after moving forum

I hope I am phrasing this correctly...

I've moved my forum from the main root folder to the "forum" folder -- from http://jpicforum.info to http://jpicforum.info/forum/ -- and I would like to know how I can permanently redirect all my currently indexed "powered by vbulletin" pages to the new url structure.

My main forum index had been http://jpicforum.info/index1.php - but now the forum index is http://jpicforum.info/forum/ -- So for instance I want what was http://jpicforum.info/adult-writes/ to redirect to new http://jpicforum.info/forum/adult-writes/ url

What's the easiest way to accomplish this please?

Jacquii.

btw - I am using vBSEO...

Maybe with htaccess... untested but perhaps something like this:

Make an index page (just take a .txt file put this code in it and rename it index.html) and put it in the old folder...

Yeah htaccess is a better way. you can also sometimes set up htaccess within your Cpanel if you are using that on your hosting package. i believe there is a link in the panel for redirection if I remember properly. The vBSEO guys would also probably have a really good idea of what to do as well.

Thanks for the response guys

You can see all the pages we have indexed in Google - particularly the links that go to the forum. Ideally it would be nice to simply have a script of some sort or url re-direct specifically for the forum posts.

I already have a redirect of sorts in place = browse to http://jpicforum.info/blablabla/ -- I use a meta refresh code to auto redirect to my new homepage.

((sigh...))

IDK - I was just hoping that there would be an easy way to automatically redirect all old urls to the http://jpicforum.info/forum/ new 'forum' folder.

Just as an fyi...

Actually it's pretty interesting. I have the vBSEO sitemap addon installed of course... It has been generated twice since I've re-opened my forum and interestingly enough -- it seems as if all my links have been correctly re-indexed with the http://jpicforum.info/forum/ url

I truly did not expect that to happen, and to happen so quickly. But apparently it has.

Anyway - thanks again for the suggestions ya'll - and happy 2011 to you all

Jacquii.
