    How to redirect
    I used to have a phpbb forum (well still do, but it's locked) that I've replaced with a vBulletin forum. The thing is that the old forum is indexed while the new one isn't. How do I go about redirecting anyone landing on any of the old forum pages (all in the same directory) to the new forum home page? What's the easiest way?

    If you're talking about reditecting all visitors from the old forum to the homepage of the new forum, you can use a 301 redirect in your .htaccess file. This can send all traffic for a directory to somewhere else. I'm assuming the old and new forum are in different directories.
