TOPIC: Dealing with crappy components

Dealing with crappy components 9 years ago #28791

I've got two different components on my website (DT Register and the incredibly crappy RPL from RealtyNA) neither of which support standard Joomla SEF URLs. I'm trying to determine the feasibility of developing a JoomSEF Extension for either of these components. Is there a component developers guide or any other information that would help me determine if this would be worth my while?

We don't have any Developer's guide for JoomSEF extension development, but you can investigate any extension's source code (eg. Content extension) to see how it works. The most important function is

which takes JURI object and prepares the array of SEF parts (usually called $title) and returns the result of:
return JoomSEF::_sefGetLocation($uri, $title);

The good start when developing an extension is to set JoomSEF basic rewriting as Active handler for the component. If it can work with that, you can then find the URLs you need to handle in your extension in JoomSEF's URLs Manager.
