Hi!

I have created a "Category Blog Layout" page that shows (and links to) Articles. The link is in this format
index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=43&Itemid=43

The articles linked to from the blog layout don't respect the JoomSEF URLs. They all show their old format:
index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=104&catid=43
instead of the SEF URL:
/news/article-name.html

The SEF URL works, it's just not being generated as a link when an article is linked from a blog category format page. Visiting the SEF URL takes me to the article page, but the article title still links to the old, long URL. I think this is the same issue.

I have tried making menu items for each article, and this makes no difference.

I am getting somewhere with it when I add a custom SEF URL of article.html pointing at:
index.php?option=com_content&view=article
and ask it to ignore id and catid in the content extension of JoomSEF. This generates URLs like:
/article.html?id=104&catid=43
This tells me the links are being managed by JoomSEF, just not when I try to manually add an individual SEF URL for one article.

Can you help me with this please?
