Redirects for Joomla Experimental URL Routing

Redirects for Joomla Experimental URL Routing

Although I found a posted solution a few months ago for URLs with article ID only (https://www.mysite.com/category/1111-article), I had several different scenarios that were going to 404's.  Those were:

 

Links with category ID

https://www.mysite.com/11-category/article

https://www.mysite.com/11-category/1111-article

 

Links with regular, non ID numbers in alias

http://www.mysite.com/the-best-10-things

http://www.mysite.com/11-category/the-best-10-things

http://www.mysite.com/11-category/1111-the-best-10-things

Remove index.php from Joomla SEF Links

Remove index.php from Joomla SEF Links

sef.pngThere are probably a hundred articles that tell you how to change your Joomla settings to remove the /index.php/ from your links, but not a place to show you how to properly redirect existing indexed URLs to the new variant.  Add the below code to your .htaccess file.  If you already turned on the "Use URL Rewriting" feature, then it is already in your root folder of your Joomla website.

 

RewriteEngine On

 

Remove from middle of url

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^GET.*index\.php/ [NC]

RewriteRule ^index.php/(.*) $1 [R=301,L]

 

Remove from end of url

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^.*/administrator/index\.php [NC]

RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^[A-Z]{3,9}\ /(.*)index\.php($|\ |\?) [NC]

RewriteRule ^ /%1 [R=301,L]

How to add Event Tracking with Google Analytics

How to add Event Tracking with Google Analytics

Normally when I want to use Conversion Tracking for Google Analytics and Google Adwords for a form, I just track the link of the "Thank You" page.  However, I needed a way to track users clicking the button to use our ZenDesk form. To do that, you need "Event Tracking."

 

 

1. Login to you Google Analytics for your site and click on ADMIN.

2. Under VIEW, click on the GOALS link.
