htaccess for php? redirect
I have a forum where I want to take a post ( and redirect it somewhere else. I attempted a Redirect /{link}?f=20&t=471 http://{newlink} in my htaccess file, however, it is not redirecting. All my other normal redirects are going fine, so I know that is working.

Is it not possible to redirect since it is using the ? for the link? Is there something else I can do to redirect this?

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL=' page" /> where 'content="0"' is the delay... I would change either the database entry, or the page that that is used for that particular entry to add that in

or add it to the viewtopic.php something like if (t=471){echo "<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL=' page" />";}

note: In this case i am assuming that the t=471 is the post you are redirecting away from
