TOPIC: K2 Menu Urls problems

K2 Menu Urls problems 13 years, 9 months ago #15206

Hi.

I have problem with menu items having the same url when using joomsef and k2.

Let me explain with an example.

Top Menu: News
K2 Categories shown(category1, category2)
Sub Menus: category1,category2

url created for top menu www.mysite.com/news --This is correct--
urs for submenus www.mysite.com/news/catogory1, www.mysite.com/news/category2 --This is correct--


Now I create another menu item

Top Menu: Articles
K2 Categories Shown (category1,category2)
Sub Menus: category1,category2

url created for top menu www.mysite.com/news --This is wrong!--
urs for submenus www.mysite.com/articles/catogory1, www.mysite.com/articles/category2 --This is correct--


All main menus created take the same url!!!!

Sub-menus work correct!

I have latest joomsef and latest k2

Please help.

P.S. With other components I don't have this problem. All menu urls are created correctly.

Hello,

Try setting the "Ignore multiple sources" option to "No" in JoomSEF's K2 extension parameters (using the Manage Extensions page in JoomSEF).

Best regards,

I have tried that setting and nothing changed.

new urls under k2 categories, no matter where they are in the structure end up being names for an entirely different and unrelated category. It would be like /This-Silly-Dir/agreat.html instead of /Great/great.html
There are many many of them created. I delete them, purge cache and try again,eventually if I'm lucky after about 1 hour of fooling around it mysteriously makes the right url.

Have you ever seen this: bookmarks.honewatson.com/2010/02/17/k2-s...-sef-fix-for-joomla/

is this a possible solution?
I just can't keep doing this as now my hourly rate has gone down to about zeor per hour for hours of reinventing these urls that don't work, purging and doing it over and over and over again.

I have the 3.8.1 version licensed.

Re: K2 Menu Urls problems 13 years, 1 month ago #22282

ok, i have more on this bug. What it appears to be doing is taking the oldest instance of a K2 menu item in menus, and using that as the name of first directory hierarchy, ie: /directory1/whatever.html

So all new articles are getting that no matter where they are in the menu system and whether or not they even have a menu item.

Now I'm thinking I should just have left k2 out of the equation and just set k2 to basic rewriting or something else. But now I've got links all over the place that are already using the created links.

What to do...

Re: K2 Menu Urls problems 13 years ago #23254

this is over 8 weeks old. Is there any way you can help with this problem.
the problem is that the re-writing of k2 items is taking the first category ever set up and using that as the path to the item location of every item.

it is not associating them with the proper menu number.
