    Hi guys I have a site on wordpress...

    I need to create a .htaccess file to do a 301 redirect ONLY of my homepage, all other pages I have must remain active in the old site:

    homepage.com >>>>> newsite.com
    homepage.com/page1 >>>>> homepage.com/page1
    homepage.com/page2 >>>>> homepage.com/page2

    what code should I use?



    thanks

    Hey buddy,
    this will do the trick:
    Code:
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule ^$ http://www.newsite.com [R=301,L]
    
    P.S.
    replace: 'newsite.com' with your newer site to redirect to
    good luck :)

    Code:

    RewriteRule ^$ http://www.newsite.com [R=301,L]
    
    with this code the other pages on the site are inactive!:

    homepage.com >>>>> newsite.com
    homepage.com/page1 >>>>> NOT FOUND!

    Are u sure?
    it works fine for me.
    here take a look:
    domain: search-walla.tk -> esek2all.co.il
    internal page: search-walla.tk/money/ -> search-walla.tk/money/

    it works fine...

    Or you could just paste this in your header.php

    Code:
    <?php if(is_home()){ echo '<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL=HTTP://YOURSITE.com">' ; } ?>
