All our biscuits are in a new tin

The domain names are now linked over to the new site. This may have broken old links to the site, so if you find your way here with a “page not found” error, let me know and I’ll redirect the old page to the new. I’ve already redirected a couple of pages.

Here’s how to do it:
1) Open your .htaccess file in the root of your site (it may be hidden if you’re using an ftp client)
2) A file not found error is also known as a 301 error. Add a line to this file, in the following format:
Redirect 301
For example, I my old software page lived at http://www.webbiscuit.co.uk/software.aspx, so I added the following line:

Redirect 301 /Software.aspx http://www.webbiscuit.co.uk/software/

So if you do find any lost biscuits out there on the web, let me know and I’ll redirect them to our nice warm lovely home.
