ReDJ ComponentPlugin

ReDJ allows to manage URL redirection (useful for creating URL aliases, and managing redirection from old to new URLs). No more error 404 (page not found). Managing associations from old to new URLs, all links to old pages will be redirected to new ones. Create an URL alias by now is so simple, just create new item and add both alias and real destination URL. Enjoy!

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

I have never experienced better support. The developer went above and beyond to help me solve an issue on my website and finally get it working. Even though the issue was not to do with his product. How's that for service!

Highly recommended!!!!

I just installed plugin, activated it ! and Put the redirect URL. The plugin was immediately on the go ! Good Job Professionals. It is very nice of you.

I needed to set up some 301 redirects as we moved our site from an aspx to Joomla site. This totally changed the page layout structure. With ReDJ after looking at the documentation I was quickly able to get 1 to 1 redirects sorted out. I did end up contacting support for General Expression/macro code expression help and was given back one command that resolved about one hundred 301 redirect errors using the lpathtrim macro. I have yet to hit a redirect that ReDJ hasn't been able to resolve.
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!!

It took me a while to figure out exactly how to fill out the from and to fields, but after that, what an awesome plugin!

As a visitor, you are visiting this page to solve your redirection issue, and here's the right place to be :)
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!)
Bless you!

Installed and used everything works well. It's no so easy to understand at first look but you need just to focus on main macro function and spend ten minute to write the correct string for redirect. Anyway the support is great! write on forum, the support team answer you in real time clearly and deeply.

I am a Joomla novice regarding extensions and customizing. However, I was able to install this extension and create my first redirects in less than 5 minutes! This extension is very easy to use, and looks like it has many features that would be useful for advanced applications.

It looks very promising but it did not work for us and I did not want to spend an hour figuring out what we do wrong. It was enabled, configured and URL's where added as described. But the redirection did not work.
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).

Works out of the box and does what it say it will.

If you like me, you change titles regular, or section names etc, and you also create back links about the web, then you MUST have this. Works fast & easy. I just wanted to add a redirect to my homepage any problems, and this is what it does. Perfect

Good options and works great. Custom 404 page or just redirect to your home or any other page if there is an error.

When migrating or changing websites url's could change. This means that I need to map these old url's to the corresponding place in the new website so as not to lose valuable visitors.

This exstension does exacly that in a self explanatory way. (I got this setup in no more than 2 minutes).

Simply install the component an dthe plugin, then activate the plugin, an dfinally enter the url rules in the component. Couldn't be easier.

I will definitely use this extension going forward.

It just worked for me.. very very easy to install and configure.. really followed the "make it simple" strategy.. Thanks a lot for sharing

This just works.
Excellent component that does exactly as descripted.

A newbie hint for URL redirection:

From: (make it relative)

To: (make it absolute)

Remember you can also use regular expressions.

From an italian to an italian: BRAVO!!
This is a great extension. It plays but remember...the plugin must be activated (obviously) and it must be the first between system plugins in plugin manager. Thanks a lot.

Works great straight out of the box, exactly what I needed. Thanks! :)

I only comment on extensions that are user friendly and do what they say, and this is one of them..

I had a little trouble figuring out how to format the from/to URLs. But the developer quickly responded to my question, and once I started using it correctly, it worked perfectly! A very nice plugin & component, very easy to use.

Exactly what I needed. Worked flawlessly out of the box (once I remembered to turn the extension to "on"). Works with SEF too!

Excellent extension! Took me two seconds to set it up. Thanks for the prior reviewer for clarifying that the "from" URL is only the tail.
