TOPIC: How to Configure URL's correctly?

How to Configure URL's correctly? 11 years, 5 months ago #31465

I've looked at the component and yes, I do know how to change JoomSef URL's, however it seems I am having a bit of a problem as all of the URL's it's created are including and putting undesirable elements into the URLS.

for example,

JoomSef is creating URL's which look like these:

when in fact I desire my URL's to look like this:

Since my main menu item is "Welcome", and my dogtraining category has no parent category, it looks as though JoomSef is assuming and writing it as if my "Welcome" menu entry was actually the parent item of my category (of which it was not)?

in the same manner, anything that is put into "uncategorized" as a category comes out like the following:

when in fact it is more pleasing just to see it as

Now normally, I can change the URL's manually yes, but if your site is massive in terms of content, categories and articles like mine, this becomes a real pain. Is there any way I could change these URL's and remove the unwanted parts of the menu without spending massive time trying to edit every single article?

To remove the menu item title from SEF URLs, go to JoomSEF -> Manage Extensions -> Content -> Common tab and set "Add menu title" to "No".
To remove the word "uncategorized", go to JoomSEF -> Manage Extensions -> Content -> Extension tab and set the "Uncategorized" category title to "Exclude categories from article links" field.
