Hello there,

Is there a general htaccess code for doing a domain wide 301 redirect from Sh404sef or SEOInfo back to Joomla native seo or non-seo? for all the extension generated urls?

If so, would someone share?

Thanks to all.

There's no such thing, URLs are 100% dependent on your site content.

SEOInfo is a browser extension, it has no connection with what happens on your website, it's an external tool.

Perhaps I didn't phrase question correctly:

1. I have sh404sef installed and running correctly on a 3.9+ joomla domain, creating the sef friendly urls per your extension.

2. If I uninstall or disactivate sh404sef, the urls created by Joomla will revert back to non-sef or Joomla native sef urls, depending on my configuration.

Can I set an htaccess 301 redirect from the sh404sef created urls back to Joomla non-sef or native sef?

If so, what would it be?

The question was clear and I already replied to it. There's no general .htaccess rule that you can apply to redirect from sh404SEF URLs to Joomla SEF or non-SEF. You would have to list ALL the URLs on your site, at least those listed by Google, and add redirects for each of them, or find patterns so that you redirects a group of them with one rule.

But a generic rule that redirects all URLs, that does not exist, because all redirects are 100% specific to YOUR site and YOUR content, you cannot re-use redirects made for another website.

In your first message you said:

domain wide 301 redirect from Sh404sef or SEOInfo 

And I just wondered why you mentioned SEOInfo, which has nothing to do with URLs.
