Quick Tips[edit]

How to Create a Redirect

  1. Open Redirect and click the 'New' toolbar button.
  2. In the screen that appears, enter the redirect information. When entering URLs into the Expired URL and New URL fields, enter the complete URL as you would type it into your web browser to view it. The Expired URL should be a URL that does not resolve to any valid web page on your website. You can specify a source URL for a Joomla web page that you have put into a disabled state in the administrator Backend. Ensure the State option is set to 'Enabled'.
  3. Press the 'Save & Close' toolbar button to save your new redirect and put it into effect.
