Hello,

I have migrated a site to Joomla and need some old urls to be redirected. Using SEF urls in Joomla (no special plugin) mod_redirect enabled.
I have edited the (joomla-) .htaccess file entering

redirect 301 /oldpage.html http://www.mydomain.com/newpage.html

but that doesn't do it.

Tried various 301 plugins such as JRedirect without any luck.

Anybody got a bullet proof solution?

Thanks
