I once created a 'forum' page in my WSN Links directory. Then I deleted it and created a real forum. The problem is that I still get a lot of visitors trying to find the old wsn links page (which was actually a category).

Right now when visitors try to follow old links to the 'forum' category, WSN Links tells them it doesn't exist. I would like to make it redirect visitors looking for that one category (i think it was CATID=29) to the new WSN Forum page.

Can you suggest a way to do this?

Thx.

On the SEO page you can rewrite urls. I'm not sure if it'll work if the new location is in a different path though, I think it has to be a relative url. For a category you can use the option to make the category a link to a url.

Hmmm... In that case, is it possible to restore a deleted CATID and make it a link that goes to the new forum address?

Try this query:
UPDATE wsnlinks_categories SET deleted=0 WHERE id=29
