    Joomla redirects question

    I am working on a new joomla site and need to be able to use something to do redirects. I have looked at 404SEF and redirect but neither are quite what I need. 404SEF is too much and redirect only works in the root directory (too little).

    So I am thinking of going the .htaccess route. I have attempted to add one redirect to the .htaccess that I have in the directory /srv/www/htdocs/joomla but the redirect does not work.

    Can anyone provide some help and at least point me in the direction of where to put the .htaccess file?

    Thanks,

    Dan

    Unfortunately I have found nothing that works.

    This is a rather large issue from what I have seen and it would be great if you could do something like create a file: redirect.txt and then point to it somehow and inside of it there would be a list of what you would want to have redirected, like this:

    new link | old link
    example.com/teachers | example.com/content/section/6/30/
    example.com/students | example.com/content/section/18/92/

    That would not be ideal but atleast it would give an option.

    That's what the .htaccess file is for.
    Search "301 redirect" (with quotes).
