Redirect wordpress page to static html home page (6 posts)

    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.

    I should have added to the above that I also tried to add a custom link via the menu but again, it is not going to http://www.myhomepage.com like I want it to. In fact, WordPress seems extremely slow at updating whenever I make a change, and even when I clear the cache it still shows the old version.

  3. I think that you'll need to provide a link to your site. It's hard to know what's going on without seeing it.

    Here is the link to the blog: http:/www.digitalphotos101.com/blog
    I want the "digital photos 101 home" link to go to my html home page http://www.digitalphotos101.com but I can't seem to get it to work, even though I set up a custom page with the correct link. Thanks.

    The link you have in your menu is incorrect, it is pointing to your blog. .. are you using wp custom menus?
    You can use this :

    in the custom menu part to get the link to go to your home page.
