TOPIC: Article URLs in "Category Blog Layout"

Article URLs in "Category Blog Layout" 9 years, 2 months ago #28962

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?

Hi,
In JoomSEF's Advanced configuration in Debugging URL errors section enable the Enable errors logging option. Then browse your category page and after that use the View Errors Log button in the Maintenance section of JoomSEF's Control panel to check if there are any errors logged.

where is that debug option i dont see in

We've turned on the option to auto generate URLs, and this has fixed the issue, news articles now link up well and by themselves.

Of course, we now have a lot of autogenerated URLs that are popping up for all sorts of pages, but that's a different issue!

vanderex: Version 3.7.6 doesn't have this feature. It's available since version 3.9.0.
