I'm having some trouble redirecting my old URLs to the new one. Here is the situation:

My main site is on Wordpress, and I have a forum installed in a subdirectory called 'forum'. I've switched to a new forum software and I need to redirect some old URLs. I'm using the following htaccess redirection:
Redirect 301 /forum/threads/old-thread-title/ http://www.mysite.com/forum/topic/new-thread-title
I've tired adding this to the forum's htaccess, to the Wordpress' htaccess file, I've used different urls, but I'm still unable to redirect to the new URL.

What am I doing wrong?
