How to use Redirects Component

After you successfully installed Redirects Component for Joomla!1.5 you have to configure it first! To do it you should create your custom error page (just create a new article for that). After that add a new menu item to that page (you can unpublish it or add it to a menu that is never displayed on your site). See Joomla! Documentation for more information about custom error pages in Joomla! Then go directly to Redirects Component, open Parameters window and choose the menu item you've just created in the Redirect URL dropdown list. That's it! Since now all the incorrect requests to your site handled by Joomla! will be redirected automatically!
