    Hi Guys,

    Really struggling with this and i am hoping it is easier than i finding it.

    Basically i have a typical Wordpress site with the permalinks like this website/common-questions now i want to do a 301 redirect from that page to say newsite/ or newsite.php

    Each time i do it it seems to redirect either to the new site with the same folder which won't work as the site is done in .php and i havent created specific folders or it just doesnt work.

    Is there an easier or better way of doing this?

    The homepage has redirected fine.

    Just edit your .htaccess file or install a plugin

    If I recall, it's difficult redirecting a / to a .php. I could be wrong though.

    Just remember nearly everything within Wordpress can be done trough Plugins ;-) I haven't had issues with 301s internal or external with previously linked plugins in this thread.
