which on the new site correspondes to:

Normally I would just add rows in .htaccess to handle this, like:
redirect 301 /pages/pathvand/marockov1.html

But this doesn't work. (Well it partly works, since the new rewritten url is

Should I be using Director::redirectPerm instead? And if so, how do I do that? Other ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Found a discussion about this in an old thread, sorry. But following the advices in that thread, I still can't get it to work.

If I use the suggested RewriteRule, nothing happens. And if I use the redirect, the URI is rewritten, but I still get the old one attached at the end, with "?url=old_url".

Any other suggestions?

Ok, I must have mixed a few things up. Anyway, this works for me now:

RewriteRule pages/english.html [R=301,L]

Case closed I guess.
