Please, to make the most of all the features of ReDJ you should take a look at the tutorial!!!

- Added support for new macros for redirection rules.
News for version 1.6.0:
- Completely rewritten for the new version of Joomla! 1.6 and 1.7;
- The redirection rules can work on the entire URL, including protocol and domain;
- It can be specified for each redirect rule whether or not to first decode the URL.
All in all: way to go - keep up the excellent work.
But this awesome extension can handle any sort of redirect rules. perfect one, Thank you so much.
Even better than this great product though is the support from the developer. I had a small problem and he worked with me to solve it even though I was using the free version. That's commitment above and beyond as far as I'm concerned.
Keep up the great work Luigi and thanks!
Secondly this redirect mod beats hands down anything I have tried up to now as there is no redirect that I haven't been able to conquer.
Taking a URI instead of regular urls and combining it with regular expression is masterfull and very powerfull tool. There is a learning curve to master regular expressions but when you do you can have multiple pages redirected from one single redirect.
In combination with tag-meta you got a powerhouse in your hands. 5 stars!
I've run support desks with millions of transactions/year and Luigi's support is top notch. I was very quickly e-mailed back a working solution to my problem.
The "Errors" page in ReDJ caught a few internal errors with on page graphics that Google Webmasters/Tools didn't pick up which was a bonus.
I'm happy our site went with ReDJ I think you will be too!!
I installed this extension to solve a redirection issue (I wanted the subdirectory of my domain to behave as the main directory),
I posted it on the forum (search for the post "redirect from subdirectory to 1 higher level"),and I later found out that it can't be solved with RedJ.
but let me tell you, the support is fantastic, and Luigi helped me all the way to the proper configuration (although it's not a customization of the extension itself!)
After installing Phoca SEF we got this problem of URL redirecting solved. May be we try it again at a later stage if we can figure out how it works and if a feature is added to have all strings redirecting that are set with a filter or portion of the requesting url. Right now every single url of a page that has been moved must be done seperately. Source like /pictures?.... into /pictures*.
I hope you will give a second chance to ReDJ in future. It's not "for dummies", infact the last version supports internal redirect and dynamic destination (advanced features), but is not so hard to make it work. Also, a fresh tutorial is available and you can ask for support on forum (for many users I have solved the problem directly logging into their backend).
