I have a static html website with a WordPress blog in a subdirectory. I want to have a link in the WordPress nav menu that goes to my html homepage. I tried to create a new static WordPress page with a 301 redirect but it didn't work. I used:
Redirect 301 /home-page/ http://www.myhomepage.com
and I put this above the wordpress entry that was already in my htaccess page, and there are no blank lines or spaces in between. But it doesn't redirect (at least I don't get an error message).
Is there another/better way to do this? I'm using the Twentyten theme.
