Redirect a Joomla Site

  • Knowledge Base
  • Mobile Website Builder


Choose your Joomla version for step by step instructions on how to add the redirect script to your site.  Some templates do not allow you direct access to the HTML as the default one does. In cases like this, it might be best to find a plug-in for your Joomla site that redirects to the sub-domain you created.  See the plugins section below.

Joomla 3.2x

  1. Login to your Joomla backend.
  2. Click Template Manager, under configuration.

3.  Switch from Styles to Templates view.


Click the link to view your template's details and files.

5.  Select the index.php file. Note: You will need to setup this redirect on all pages which you want to make mobile friendly.

6.  Scroll down and paste your redirect script immediately after the <head> tag.

7.  Click save to apply the changes to your site.

Joomla 2.5x

1.  Login to your Joomla backend.

2.  Once you've logged in, click on the template manager.

3.  Click the templates tab.

4.  Click the link for your template's details and files.

5.  Click edit main page template.

6.  Scroll down to find the <head> tag, paste your redirect script immediately after it.

7.  Click save to apply the changes to your website.

Joomla 1.5x

1. Login to your Joomla backend. 
2. Once you've logged in, place your mouse over the extensions menu at the top and choose Template Manager. 

3. Choose the template that is currently active on your site, usually has a star next to it.

4. Next click the edit HTML button at the top right.

5. In the HTML code, paste your redirect script directly after the <head> tag. 


6. After you have done this, click the save button to make the changes to your regular website.


If the template you are using restricts your ability to edit the HTML directly, there are several 3rd party Joomla plugins available to redirect your mobile visitors.  Generally you'll just need to enter your DudaMobile URL as the destination for the redirect.
