[thelist] htaccess quandry

Hey everyone,

I've been banging my head up against this .htaccess for months trying to
figure out these 301s for my drupal site. Each time I come back to it, I
fail. It can't be this hard, but I can't seem to get anything to work.

Here is my current htaccess:


I'm trying to redirect 2 of some 20-30 old paths at the bottom like so:

Redirect 301 /feed http://feeds.feedburner.com/CrossAndThrone
Redirect 301 /category/radio http://www.crossandthrone.com/radio-wyll-1160-am

The problem is when I enter the old string for category/radio I get this:


note the query string at the end? This still ends up giving a
404 of course. I think if I could get it to not do that, I could
correctly redirect all the bad links. I've tried the 301 in different
spots but it doesn't seem to matter. Why doesn't the site just follow
the directive I'm putting in?

Any help is appreciated!
