We are proud to announce that we have one more basic redirection plugin for Joomla! 1.5 .

What does lknRedirect plugin do?

I'm going to try to explain what it does with an example. Core Joomla! is getting registrations from http://www.yoursite.com/index.php?option=com_user&task=register . JomSocial is using http://www.yoursite.com/index.php?option=com_community&view=register . Community Builder is using http://www.yoursite.com/index.php?option=com_comprofiler&task=registers . Virtuemart has its own registration form and Virtuemart registration url is http://www.yoursite.com/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.registration .

What happens if you start to use Virtuemart? You will have 2 registration page from 2 different urls (index.php?option=com_user&task=register and index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.registration) .

Another question what happens if you start to use Virtuemart and JomSocial or Community Builder? It goes more crazy . Yoı will have 3 registration forms (index.php?option=com_user&task=register and index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.registration and index.php?option=com_comprofiler&task=registers).

This is what lknRedirect can do for you. You can redirect core Joomla registration url to another url (like JomSocial  or Community Builder or Virtuemart or any other url)
