Great, works as it says, easy to install and really powerful for such a simple requirement.

We really recommend the Pro version, for the price of a coffee you will save lots of headaches!

Very easy to use. It works very well. I didn't want something that was too bloated with code, and this does the job flawlessly. Option to use/not use javascript and option to redirect after just the intro text of an article. Nice, small fee for the upgraded version with no ads. Worth it!
Didn't check the support options because the code works out of the box, however, if it's anything like the code, it'll be very efficient and thorough.
Thanks for great plugin.

I had some old links which I didn't want redirected immediately. I also wanted to give people enough time to read the notice.
This extension did that, exactly as described, easy to understand and use. Nice! :)

For providing what you offer via a valid link, without painful registration/approval process, without waiting period, without obligatory and automatically renewed 'subscription', and with clear, simple UI. All this for free. For all you do, this reco's for you.

This simple redirect works as advertised. Though I do think pasting the redirect code within an article itself is a rather inelegant solution. With that in mind it's not the most user-friendly extension.

Normally I use the ReDJ for redirecting. But for some reason it won't install on our Joomla install because it can't find the install package. So I used this as an alternative till we get that sorted out (We use the JA T3 framework).

Pros: Works as advertised
Cons: Not user friendly

I hope this plugin can redirect to a full URL - I see the comment about "breaking" the URL but how do I do that?

I have to redirect URL permanently to a completely different web-page. Now I just get a refresh page.

Thanks for making this plugin.

Downloaded the plugin and within a minute I had my first redirect functioning. When I entered a complex URL the plugin had a cosmetic bug. Emailed support and within a few minutes the developer responded with a fix.

You need to mess around with the HTML codes a bit on the editor. Here are some tips I found useful:

Don't let the tags touch the }.

Break the link. Make sure that the URL you enter is NOT a hyperlink. if it is, break it.

Now it should work just fine, or it did for me. For a non-commercial version, my satisfaction with this is through the roof!

The plugin does what it says it does, and does it well. real simple, and effective.

I did notice one issue, though, and it was an easy fix. I am running ninjarss on my machine as well, and after installing the jsrp plugin, I was getting xml errors due to two spaces in front of the feed. The cause if the issue was that there are two spaces in front of the php scriptlet tag in the jsrp plugin file (plugins/content/jsrp.php). Simply remove the two spaces, and you are good to go!

Thanks for the plugin, and keep up the good work!

Fixed In the version 0.3 there is no space before and after php script-let tag.
Thanks for your review.

I have to say this was a very easy and functioning extension.

Don't know if it is search engine friendly (what kind of header it communicates - should be 301).

But it was just what I was looking for, so that you a lot for this stuff!

Go on, be strong.

PlugIn Refresh with a timeout of 0 seconds is accepted as an 301 permanent redirect by Google, allowing to transfer PageRank.

Thank you for your review.
I'll do my best!
