How to redirect an Error Link and how Match Type works:

In “404 error logs” page, at Joomla! back-end, you can see all error links and a “Fix it” button next to each error link. If you press that button you will be redirected to the Fix Link page and you will see a form with 4 fields (a. Old Full Url or Text *, b. Destination Url *, c. Comments, d. Published).

Example 1:

  • Old Full Url or Text: “this/is/an/error/link”
  • Match Type: “Full URL”
  • Destination URL: “/this/is/a/valid/link/”

If a User or a Guest visits the link “http://domain.com/this/is/an/error/link/” he will be redirected to “http://domain.com/this/is/a/valid/link/”.

Example 2:

  • Old Full Url or Text: “is/a”
  • Match Type: “Contains String”
  • Destination URL.: “/this/is/a/valid/link/”

If a User or a Guest visits the link “http://domain.com/this/is/an/error/link/” he will be redirected to “http://domain.com/this/is/a/valid/link/” because the error link contains the string “is/a”.

Example 3:

  • Old Full Url or Text: “this”
  • Match Type: “Start with String”
  • Destination URL.: “/this/is/a/valid/link/”

If a User or a Guest visits the link “http://domain.com/this/is/an/error/link/” he will be redirected to “http://domain.com/this/is/a/valid/link/” because the error link starts with the string “this”.

Example 4:

  • Old Full Url or Text: “link”
  • Match Type: “End with String”
  • Destination URL.: “/this/is/a/valid/link/”

If a User or a Guest visits the link “http://domain.com/this/is/an/error/link/” he will be redirected to “http://domain.com/this/is/a/valid/link/” because the error link ends with the string “link”.

Example 5:

  • Old Full Url (find): “link”
  • Match Type: “Find and Replace”
  • Destination URL (replace): “url”

If a User visits the link “http://domain.com/this/is/an/error/link/” he will be redirected to “http://domain.com/this/is/a/valid/url/” because the error link contains the string “link” and it has replaced it with the string “url”.
