redirect relative links of component to url

Re: redirect relative links of component to url

Using htaccess is quicker for the pages that need redirecting. i.e. someone hits a wrong page, htaccess picks it up and throws them over to a different page without PHP and Joomla being "booted up" for that page request. That's a considerable gain.

However, the htacess code then gets run for every single normal page request AND image AND css AND js request done on your entire site. It's hard to say how much of a hit that gives. If you just have a handful of these and the RegExes are not too complex then it's probably low impact. But if you're using a big htacess file then it does add up. Sorry I can't give quantitative results for that, but it's going to be different in every case.

So it's swings and roundabouts.

Cheers,
Stephen
