Re:How to use sh404SEF extension to manage 301 6 Years, 2 Months ago
Solution - creating 301 redirect file «. Htaccess» with links containing «index.php», without reference to the new «index.php». For smaller sites, you can manually redirect all write to the file «. Htaccess». But for large sites is not an option.
For a small site this can easily be fixed. Make sure you still know what your old URL's were, and then just enter this URL. Or you just wait one or two days untill users will have hit these pages. These pages will now be registered in your Joomla site: Go to Components -> Redirect and you will see them in the Redirect Manager: (sometimes you need to enable the Redirect plugin from the Plugin Manager first). You will now see a list of URLs that generated 404-errors: Click on any of the items listed:
Opening any specific item will allow you to enter the new URL (either relatove or absolute) and enable the record. Note that some sites suffer from funny 404-errors continuously, which can seriously fill up the logs, so keep an eye on this.
If you are very anxious about your current search rankings, if you do not want your visitors to see the 404-errors at all, or if if you have a really big site, you should prepare your redirects instaed of fixing them afterwards..
First, you should again determine all URL's of the old site. Then, determine the corresponding new URL's. Now you need to implement the 301 reroute for all these URL's.
Better, look documentation.
