I have just rebuilt a site using Silverstripe and it has moved domains at the same time. The old domain has been parked at the base new one but I want to be able redirect specific pages on the old site to specific ones on the new one.

I am using lines like:

Redirect 301 /escorted_tours.html http://www.theactivegourmettravel.com/escorted-tours/
in the .htaccess file but because of the Silverstripe rule this redirects to http://www.theactivegourmettravel.com/escorted-tours/?url=/escorted_tours.html

Is there anyway to stop this withou intereferring with the Silverstripe function?

Many thanks

Just had the same problem. I'm no coder but this is working for me. Use:

http://www.theactivegourmettravel.com/sapphire/main.php?url=/escorted-tours/

..in the destination. It will resolve to the proper URL when used in a redirect, but not when you use it in a browser yourself (though still gives you the right page).

Hope that helps!
