Read the last few posts in this Forum. It can't be much more than 24 hours since I last posted the boilerplate on query strings (parameters). That will be your starting point. lc4seo msg:4477486 12:46 pm on Jul 20, 2012 (gmt 0)
Since you want to leave some pages in the /test/ directory you will have to 301 all pages individually on the .htaccess that you want to redirect: RewriteRule ^test/page-to-keep$ [ ...] [R=301,L] newsite.com If you wanted to just 301 the entire directory and add new pages for the ones you want to keep you could use the following: Rewriterule ^test/(.*) [ ...] [R=301,L] newdomain.com g1smd msg:4477488 1:15 pm on Jul 20, 2012 (gmt 0)
Bill. You added a sticky thread a few months ago asking people to use example.com in this forum so that URL auto-linking would be suppressed. Since that request was posted only three or four people have managed to comply with it.

But the OP was one of them-- unless Bill was in a hurry and didn't have time for the "thread tidy" boilerplate-- so let's be nice to him ;) Just noticed that if you are starting a new topic in this forum, the Sticky will also be visible at the bottom of the screen in the "This Forum: Newer" spot. lc, he will have to look at the query string, because that's the significant variable. A conditionless Rule won't work. (France and Germany come with him; Swizerland stays put. Heh.) jamalwalsh msg:4477751 7:30 am on Jul 21, 2012 (gmt 0)
Lucy, you're correct that's exactly what I need to do.
