    Hey, I'm kinda new to wordpress and have a pretty simple question. I was wondering what code can I place in my wordpress template so that if people reach my blog, I can automatically forward them to another page. Also, the location of where I'd put that code would be appreciated. Thanks

    I'm not sure I follow. If someone reaches you at yoursite.com, you want to forward them somewhere else? If that's the case, why have the install in the first place?

    You could either redirect by using the header in the file/s. Example here:


    You could also use a server redirect. Your host may have a front-end like cPanel to simplify the creation of a re-direction.

    @miklb, maybe the OP wants to migrate.

    I understand he may be migrating, but there would be no reason to have WP at the previous location then, and could simply have an index.php/html with redirect. But by using the word "page", I wanted some clarification before offering up a specific solution.

    basically, I'm pulling in rss feed from my blog, so I don't want my actual blog (wordpress installation index) to be accessible. I was planning to just put a redirection link in if anyone were to get to it.
