Site Management, URL Redirection

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!!!

Sets up redirect well but it creates a lot of garbage and messes up article and menu structure
Ease of use
Too much confusing and not easy to use as it messes up menu structure.....
I used this to: Ofcourse for my Joomla site and it messed up my navigations....... Not needed, ignore it
Great component. I was frustrated with other extension which don't solve my problems redirect old url with item id
Ease of use
It worked to the first
So far not requested
Great and complete!
I used this to: After to enable new URL routing feature on JS 3.8 some item url were needed to be redirected
Makes it easy to create new redirections. Lost correct urls for articles, menus and categories, resulting in a painful cleanup job.
Ease of use
Simple and straightforward
For the usage, excellent documentation.
I used to do redirections using .htaccess now I do that using this extension. Works just as described
Ease of use
I used this to: redirect old URL to new one whenever there's a change in url
Redirection for old URL to new one and thereby avoid 404.
Ease of use
Easy to install and make work simple redirection. Knowledge in regex is a must if you try to use all the possibilities of REDJ.
Very good support. Luigi's responses are fast and efficient. Thank you for that! :)
Good documentation, very rich to show all possibilities REGJ give you. Find some regex tutos is a plus.
I used this to: Mass moving items from a component to another - Wrote only a few Iines of redirection in REDJ to keep my google raking.

Everyone should consider to not lose links and rankings when changing them, redirecting is fundamental in those cases
Ease of use
This extension is really easy and helps you to redirect to new links and change them in Google webmasters
Amazing support when i contacted them
Almost perfect
I used this to: High traffic website with good ranking gained in past years
For what we do (mostly simple redirects), works every time. We have only scratched the surface of what ReDJ can do.
Ease of use
Drop dead easy for the basics.
Extraordinary. Luigi answers questions in the forum quickly and has been willing to help on an individual basis. Amazing!
Very good.
I used this to: We have been using ReDJ for a couple of years mostly for simple redirects. Now that we have completed our Joomla 3 upgrade, we will explore the full capabilities of ReDJ. We will upgrade to the Enterprise version soon, not so much for new capabilities as to show our appreciation!
What a time saver this little extension is! I started using it on 1.5 sites, then 2.5 and now I'm using it on 3.3. So happy I don't have to mess with redirect code in the htaccess file! Simple to use and does what it promises. I wish everything worked as smoothly as this extension.
