How to manually write in a url redirect in htaccess (with SEO enabled)

Hello.

I'm not sure how to properly do it anymore.  In V7 without SEO I'd type in the standard  redirect 301  "...shop/ecom-prodshow/..." but this doesn't seem to work for me in V8.  Can someone tell me what is the proper way?  I have a dead link that I need to redirect to a new category.

Thanks.

Thanks Aircut but this isn't what I am talking about.  I've implemented the SEO as per your link.

I am referring to the need to manually redirect a dead url to an active url.

Old CCP7 links are automatically 301'ed to the new CCP8 format, if your item/category is still there and active.  I think you've probably deleted a category and want to 301 it somewhere else.  To do that, use (for a product):

Code:

RewriteRule ^Item/OLDSEOURL http://www.yourdomain.com/Item/NEWSEOURL [L,R=permanent]

Or, for a product for which you never set up an old SEO URL:

Code:

RewriteRule ^ecom-prodshow/OLDID\.html http://www.yourdomain.com/Item/NEWSEOURL [L,R=permanent]

Thanks Nick.  I tried to adapt your second formula to redirect a category but I still can't get it to work.

This is what I'm trying.  (The + sign is and empty space. I deleted and recreated this category in order to get rid of it.)

Code:

RewriteRule ^ecom-catshow/Burnout-Chemical_Free_Sunscreen+_Lip_Balms\.html http://www.brenditasbodyworks.com/shop/Category/Burnout-Chemical_Free_Sunscreen [L,R=permanent]

You might need to escape the plus sign in order for it to work.  Ie:

\+

Try that.  Everything else looks good with it.
