how can I redirect a URL in Joomla 3.6 from:




I need to do this because Google sometimes seems to index the pages without the category-alias and I want to do a 301 to the URL with alias.

Thank you

  • Have you considered using a Canonical Link plugin? That would essentially do the same thing and affect everything across the board. Nov 1, 2016 at 12:41
  • I am not sure if this plugin will help, because the pages without the category-alias in the URL only show the meta tags of the content page, but not the right content. So I think it will be a better option to redirect to the content page with the right content.

You could use the core Joomla! Redirects component.
