I am sad to say that this is not the case with ArtioSEF.
I paid for the product, installed it, had problems placed my issues on their forum and they deleted all but one of my posts. Obviously they do not want any negative comments about their just aweful product.
On the one post they left on their forum the finally replied after a day and a half and said it wasn't the products issue, I must have the wrong permissions set.
The scary thing about this is I support people for a reason and while I have more than my fair share of PEBKAC's, I do read manuals. What is more I had a previous version installed that was working although it more then halved my website performance with the number of queries the product creates on each page access. I uninstalled the previous version before installing the new one as per the very limited documentation on the product. Nothing annoys me more then a vendor trying to blame everything else but their own products for causing issues.
Documentation is another issue, I don't mind scrambling my way around a product and through forums for free things but when I have paid for an item I expect it to have at least a reasonable explanation of the products features.
I have asked the developers for a refund but don't hold any hopes for a resolution to this situation.
All I can say is I am going to OpenSEF and recommend other do the same.
we cannot agree with this comment. We do not delete any post in our forums, unless they are rude or completely wrong.
We always try to provide the users the best support and there is very detailed documentation available both online and with the product.
babies/childcare-2.php - index.php?option=com_content&Itemid=47&id=25&task=view
babies/childcare-4.php - index.php?option=com_content&Itemid=52&id=25&task=view
babies/childcare-5.php - index.php?option=com_content&Itemid=48&id=25&task=view
babies/childcare-6.php - index.php?option=com_content&Itemid=50&id=25&task=view
babies/childcare-7.php - index.php?option=com_content&Itemid=60&id=25&task=view
babies/childcare.php - index.php?option=com_content&Itemid=32&id=25&task=view
The documentation gives no explanation as to how this component actually works so at first I had no idea how this would affect indexed pages. I created a sitemap using an external tool and it found ALL of the multiple URLs for the same page. What a mess !! The only way to get rid of this is to set Exclude source info (Itemid) to Yes, but that messes up a lot of functionality in your site, so not very useful.
There is no support at all on their forum and they only provide paid support. Even if you paid them $30 for this component.
A complete waste of time and money.
the new version provides toools that greatly help to reduce number of such links, although experienced users are able to prevent them also with the older version.
As regards, the support we try to help on our forums and we require paying for support only in case when the issues are related to customers site configuration, conflicts with 3rd party extensions, etc.
This is a big issue from the standpoint of SEO because it basically creates duplicate content all over your site. Since this is the component that should improve !Joomla SE optimization I think this is a major bug. There is an option to exclude itemid's in the SEF query, but this messes upa your !Joomla functionality, and you loose control over modules and menus.
Other than that, I find this component great, but would not recommend it to anyone at this moment because of the duplicate content problem.
1. http://yoursite.com does not resolve the same as http://www.yoursite.com. Could not find anything on their site to correct this.
2.Original joomla url index.php?xxxx returns a message "You are authorized to view this page". Apparently new bug in latest build. Many messages on their forum, but no answers. Artio pages yield same result.
I was finding big problems with searches - looked like it was in some kind of loop when going against com_search. But - there's no option in the config to disable it. So, I patched
components/com_sef/joomsef.php - line 492 or thereabouts, to read:
case (in_array($option, $sefConfig->skip) || $option=="com_search")
This will then explicitly skip com_search...
A bit of a quick n' dirty hack - but maybe a better one will find its way into the component?
I love all the settings related to Joomfish. Very nicely done.
It took maybe a 1/2 hour of setup time (probably the most time trying to figure out the .htaccess file because I just blazed through without carefully reading the directions in hopes of a 5 minute setup).
In comparison the OpenSef component generates 3 queries.
That's a huge difference, and Joomsef doesn't have nearly as many options as the amazing openSef does.
Conclusion: JoomSEF is required if you're using JoomFish but otherwise, you might be best served to steer clear.
Why can't anyone make a SEF component that is easy to configure and just works?
* Ability to customise URLs (eg search.html)
* Better (nicer) URLs as default (no /com/foo,task,blah/here/)
* Custom redirects
* 404 Tracking
* Custom meta tags
Excellent component. Quick/easy installation. Anyone using SEF should give this baby a go.
