The “Settings” tab is used to configure the following options:

  • Turn on / off the module. In order to connect the module to the store, you need to select “Enabled” in the “Status” field:
  • Processing for joomla links. In this field, select “Enabled” if, when creating redirects, you need to process joomla links (for example, when transferring a project from the joomla engine to opencart).
  • Sign of joomla product link. If, when creating redirects, it is necessary to process joomla links, then in this field specify the attribute of joomla links to the product. For example, shop.product_details:
  • A sign of a joomla category link. If, when creating redirects, it is necessary to process joomla links, then in this field indicate the attribute of the joomla link to the category. For example, shop.browse:
  • Automatic redirection of oscommerce links. In this field, you must select the “Enabled” value when transferring data from the oscommerce engine. If the link contains -m-, for example 123-m-apple, then part of the link to -m- will be treated as the manufacturer’s code and an automatic redirection to the real link for this manufacturer will be performed.

On this form you must fill in the fields:

  1. Condition. In order to connect a redirect to the store, you need to select “Enabled” in the “Status” field:
  2. Type of. This field is used to select the redirect code. The redirect code is necessary in order for search engines to understand for what purpose the server redirects them to another place, and also helps to indicate to search robots the relevance of the link. In this module, you can choose one of three standard redirect codes:
  • 301 - Moved forever. This redirect code means that the requested document was finally transferred to the new URL specified in the “Location” field of the header.
  • 302 - Temporary relocation. The requested document is temporarily available at a different URL specified in the header in the “Location” field. This code can be used, for example, in server-driven content negotiation.
  • 307 - Moved temporarily. The requested resource is available for a short time at a different URL specified in the “Location” field of the header.
  1. Old URL. This field is used to indicate the url from which you want to redirect to another page.
  1. New URL. This field is used to indicate the url to which redirection should be made from the old url.

For example, on the old site, the product was available at /catalog/product.php?id=125, and on the new site, the product had the link /product-125.html. In this case, in the field “Old URL” we will indicate “/catalog/product.php?id=125”, and in the field “New URL” - “/product-125.html”:

If you need to redirect to a specific time range, specify this range in the “From date” and “To date” fields:

Import redirects from csv files. This module allows you to import redirects. To do this, create a csv file that contains the following columns:

  1. "redirect_id" - redirect code. If this field is not filled in, the module will create a new redirect. If the value is in the first column, the system will be searched for by this code, and if a redirect with this code is found, it will be updated.
  2. "active" - redirect status. Possible values: 1 - on, 0 - off.
  3. "from_url" is the old url.
  4. "to_url" is the new url.
  5. "response_code" - type of redirect. Possible values: 301 - permanently moved, 302 - temporary movement, 303 - temporarily moved.
  6. "date_start" is the start date of the redirect.
