I would like to close our SMF store, but I don't want any dead URL's or for people to see Warning messages that they are unable to view the store.

I tried to redirect our store URL in cpanel using "Manage Redirects"

http://appliancejunk.com/forums/?action=store

to our new parts store...

http://appliancejunk.partsquik.com/

But then I end up with other things redirecting to the partsquick site too.

I would like all SMF store URL's to redirect, even to our forum page would be fine.

Any suggestions on how to go about it?

Thanks,

You can use .htaccess with mod_rewrite to do a redirect over to new location

Could you post a example of how I would do that?

Thanks,
