Hello Just above your redirects there is this line: RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?q=$1 [L,QSA] Try commenting it out, as that QSA appends the query string. I don't know if it performs a function for the rest of your site however so please test it first...

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: http://www.crossandthrone.com/ht.txt 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: http://www.crossandthrone.com/radio-wyll-1160-a?q=category/radio 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!
