TOPIC: Duplicated Alias and Title in URL

Duplicated Alias and Title in URL 10 years, 9 months ago #26488

  • Crispy Beef
Hi,

We have just upgraded to version 4.2.2 of JoomSEF and have now noticed that our URL structure has changed from the previous version. Where there is a menu item with the title "Interviews" and which also has the alias "Interviews" the URL generated will be as follows:

www.domain.com/interviews/interviews

We obviously on want that to show once and the config settings that we would have thought fix this don't. At the moment we don't dare update the production server - which works well - as it will destroy our indexed URLs.

The config settings we thought might help were:

Global Config -> Use Title or Alias? -> Title Alias
Manage Extensions -> Content -> Various settings under "Extension" tab

The categories that the content is assigned to are all master categories and are not sub-cats.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

I have the same problem, but it's not Title repeats, but the Name of category!
They should explain before upgrading the version!
How to disable it?

www.artio.net/support-forums/joomsef/cus...ating-duplicate-urls - Here is something about it. But I don't quite understand...

Crispy, If you solve the problem, please, write the solution ;)

Hi myharry,

Yeah, on closer inspection our URLs end up having the title/alias of a linked article first (for single article menu items), then *after* that we get the categories in their tree order ending up with this...

www.domain.com/title/category1/category2/title

We have the settings for the content extension to only show the last category in the chain also. Very, very annoying. :-/

I should also say I looked at the thread you posted, it does seem to be the same problem, just with a different component, however the solution isn't really a solution. It expects that the Itemid be inserted for all rogue menu items into the JoomSEF extension settings. For us with so many menus and also articles/categories it's simply not going to work.

The old JoomSEF worked perfectly, so there has to be something that has changed or a way to duplicate that original setup.

Same problem

anyone got solution??

Re: Duplicated Alias and Title in URL 10 years, 9 months ago #26587

Same problem here with Joomla 1.7

Single article view 'history' becomes site.com/history/uncategorized/history
So does it mean site.com/title/category/alias ?

It should have an option to control this behaviour.
(Does the paid version have this option?)

Setting the 'Use Title or Alias?' doesn't make a difference in this behaviour. (alias and title are in my case the same..)
