How to properly redirect or rewrite Joomla article urls

Post by niaziblog » Tue Mar 26, 2019 1:39 pm

I use j2store and Some of my article pages are linking to a menu items that uses aliases as the page url.
For example: mysite.com/joomla/realurl.
However these articles can still be accessed via the google search and browser
mysite.com/component/j2store/products/realurl
What is the best and easiest way to redirect/rewrite all these urls to the menu item alias(article page), seo friendly, urls?

Hello, niaziblog
