Hi there!

We are moving from Joomla to Wordpress for a number of our leading stores. We are satisfied enough with Virtuemart, but the Joomla platform just doesn't offer the same experience as Wordpress. One of the highlights of working with Joomla was sh404sef and the great control over SEF you guys offer, but obviously we need to switch to Yoast!.

We have used sh404sef for many years, so we have a large collection of 301 forwards stored there.

My question is if there is any non-db way to migrate our entire 301 redirect portfolio from sh404sef, so I can insert it into the htaccess file or somehow import into Yoast!.

What do you propose as the best way forward?
Edit: it turns out that there are buttons for export in the sh404sef menu. I was being silly for not noticing. Just close this, thanks.

Sorry to see you go and thanks for the kind words! I can't be of much help in terms of WordPress itself actually, hope you can work out something.

Please also consider:

- if those are more SEO-oriented redirects, you can maybe drop some of them. Google recommends to leave such redirects in place for about a year
- in case you come back here for support, please note that this is a pre-sale forum only. Support is provided through our helpdesk
