    hmm what does this mean – “…Even though I’ve got the BPS generated .htacess file in both my http: // and http: // root folders”. Do you have the same website duplicated in 2 different folders? If so, why would you be doing something like that?

    Check your WordPress Settings to make sure they are correct.
    Settings >>> General
    WordPress Address (URL)
    Site Address (URL)

    To create redirect rules use RedirectMatch instead. And I do not think you really want the back reference $1, but i could be wrong. Are you trying to redirect /locations/mankato-mn-mover(.*) to just your contact page or do you want this instead /about/contact/locations/mankato-mn-mover.

    RedirectMatch 301 ^/locations/mankato-mn-mover(.*)$

    Thanks for the fast response, and helpful answer. It turns out that the Redirect Match in your code did the job!

    I checked the settings as above, and they are both correct:

    My webhost automatically sets up the two folders — one for the and one for I do not have a Redirect setup from within my webhost, so that is why I’m confused as to where the redirect from the www to the non-www site is originating. Any thoughts on that one?

    Thanks for your help!

    Yeah that is really wierd to have two folders like that. This is the first anyone has ever mentioned something like this to me and I have no idea why they would do that. Give them a ring and ask them about that.

    My guess is that the www to non-www redirect has to do with the two folder setup. This is something that you will have to ask your Host about too since I don’t have any logical guesses that I can offer about this. 😉

    Oh you mentioned that you had .htaccess files for each folder so double check them. Also I guess you could always do a redirect from the other folder to the site you want if that is what is going on.

    Host issue/non-BPS issue. Resolving.

    Thanks again for your help. You were right… I asked the host and they put the re-direct in automatically given their two folder setup.
    I really appreciate it. I’m heading over to right now to give BPS a 5-star rating given your excellent support.
