I know the philosophy of this forum quite well. I know it's not intended to be a .htaccess writing service.
However, I've been having one technical meltdown after another for weeks now and I'm feeling empty and numb.
If I have to be put through the "lecture ringer" I'm sure I can bare with it but please do be gentle...<looking at you with sad puppy eyes>.
It's simple enough but not working. I am used to working directly in apache config files (httpd.conf, vhosts.conf) but this one is related to .htaccess so it might be a dot or slash in wrong place or not there when it should be or there when it shouldn't. I dunno anymore.
I just need to redirect a Wordpress page that's linked as:
www.example.com/?page_id=200 (which is actually named "actual-page-name-old" in Wordpress panel but pointed to "http://www.example.com/?page_id=200" on most public links).
This is further complicate (for me) because of a total lack of experience with Wordpress. From what I've been able to understand wordpress doesn't actually haves "page" but rather "stubs" that are created to return a virtual page that is identified and pointed to be the "?page_id=200"?
I've tried many variations throughout the day and nothing is working :(
Edit: sorry didn't mean to drop the link reference in one of the URL's to actual site, caught it after posting, changed to example.com
