TOPIC: 301 redirection for old url to new sef url

301 redirection for old url to new sef url 7 years, 4 months ago #35837

I want 301 redirection from old url like index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.product_details&product_id=33&category_id=2 to new sefURL like category_name/product_name. For that i edit my sefurl in manage url and set old url in alias but when i am trying to access old url it will redirect me to home page instead of sefURL.

I think i miss some configuration steps. Please help me and thanks in advance.

Hi,

It should be working if you set the Alias as:
index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.product_details&product_id=33&category_id=2


Make sure that you don't have any custom RewriteRule set in your .htaccess file to redirect such links to homepage.


Please reply in this new topic.

Hi dajo

I checked my .htaccess file and i don't have any custom rewrite rule to redirect such rule to index page.

One more think when i enable Redirect nonSEF URLs to SEF it will give me joomSEF error Header already send. (

Hi dajo

After upgrading to joomSEF 3.9.9 error on Non sef to sef redirection is gone but still redirected to index page rather than sef url. Please reply as soon as possible.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

The Alias you reported works fine on my test server and there's no other configuration for the Aliases feature, so it should work for you.

Make sure that you clear your web browser's cache as the 301 redirects are usually cached, so the changes doesn't take effect.

If that doesn't help, we can check your website directly as a paid support service.
