Threads redirect despite redirections no longer being used

Greetings,

On my forum site: http://legendsofnorova.net

You click on a last post link or on a forum thread, and it redirects to a lota zone away from the normal forum zone.

I do not want it to do this. Originally I had a LotA zone set up for a specific group of my tabletop gamer friends. It had specific pages set up for the needs of this group that didn't really relate to the rest of the forum RP. I had redirects set-up so that a specific forum and sub-forums would be in its own zone.

Well I noticed recently that clicking on any forum link caused you to redirect to this special zone. Since this was unwanted behavior, and since I am no longer using the zone, I got rid of the redirects. But the forum links still redirect to this zone.

How do I make this stop? Thanks.

Like ocPortal? Want to thank Chris and gang somehow? Then help out in the chat room! It really needs your help! Just open it in a tab everytime you open your web browser, and when you hear a "ding", check it out!

I fixed the problem.

Really it was something so stupid and easy, I feel like a complete idiot for overlooking it. When I deleted the redirects, I forgot to save the redirects page. I simply closed the page and went on with other stuff, wondering why the redirects were still happening. They were happening of course because I still had the redirects in place! Saving is important mythus. Yes mythus… saving is important.

Still, I wouldn't have had to do all this if only the LotA subforums redirected and not all the forum topics. I wonder why that didn't work right? Oh well… no big issue since I am not really using the zone much now.
