Please, to make the most of all the features of ReDJ you should take a look at the tutorial!!!
News for version 1.7.1:
- Fixed issue with custom error page.
News for version 1.7.0:
- Added support for placeholders and comments for redirection rules;
- 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.
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.
I found ReDJ and it was amazingly simple and worked every time. I really love the fact that it tracks errors also so you can fix them without using Google Webmaster Tools.
I'm adding this to my short list of "must have extensions"!
Thank you so much for creating this, you saved me a TON of time.
THIS WORKS. I only suggest that you include the specific .htaccess lines into the component descriptor so that a developer can access them quickly, and also include a few more example redirects- all this information I found in the forum- but was crucial for me to utlize. I am guessing you'd save a lot of newbies necks out there if its a lot more accessible.
The developer also has the patience of Job. He proved extremely helpful as I worked through my goofs.
As well, for those interested, It took me a few minutes to figure out that when inserting the error url as an REDJ "item" (I was putting the full URL of the error url, and the redirection url and it simply was not working for me) - I needed to put (error url) /old/url/here.html instead of www.mysite.com/old/url/here.html and then the redirected URL as the full url - www.mysite.com/old/url/here.html - After that, this component worked like a charm
At any rate, my thanks to the developer for such a handy extension, I am well on my way to fixing my google errors at this point thanks to this.
Thanks to the author of this excellent component!!!
Site had links/pages that needed to be unpublished but those pages ranked high in Google Searches.
Didn't want 404 errors.
Installed and redirected those pages to the Home page and all was well again.
The dynamic macros are nice as well.
