Allows you to control menu item alias and have short SEF URLs without including aliases of parent menu items. Joomla native routing is not quite robust and you can't control how the SEF URL of menu item is built. You can only define menu item alias - a component of URL. By default aliases of Joomla menu items are relative: aliases of all parent menu items are auto-prepended to SEF URL. So child menu items have URLs like: http://site.com/parent-menu-item-alias/child-menu-item-alias This plugin allows you to switch alias to 'direct' mode and have short URL without aliases of parent menu items: http://site.com/child-menu-item-alias Another option is not include alias of certain menu item into SEF URL of child items.

The Simple Custom Router is a Joomla! extension to associate paths with internal Joomla! queries. For example, you can associate the path "hello-world" with the query "option=comcontent&view=article&id=42", so when a user types the URL "http://yourServer/BaseJoomlaUrl/hello-world" the article with id 42 is loaded, and when the internal Joomla! URL "index.php?option=comcontent&view=article&id=42" is translated to a humanly readable URL, "http://yourServer/BaseJoomlaUrl/hello-world" will be generated. Features: -Paths and internal Joomla! queries can be parametrized using the PHP regular expressions syntax. -Optional cache for the generated paths and queries. -Manager interface to add, edit and remove the routes in the Joomla! backend. Versions: -Joomla! 1.7.x/2.5.x: Simple Custom Router 0.1 -Joomla! 3.x: Simple Custom Router 0.2.0

Allows you to control menu item alias and have short SEF URLs without including aliases of parent menu items. Removes IDs from Joomla content articles, categories and tags URLs. Joomla native routing is not quite robust and you can't control how the SEF URL of menu item is built. You can only define menu item alias - a component of URL. By default aliases of Joomla menu items are relative: aliases of all parent menu items are auto-prepended to SEF URL. So child menu items have URLs like: http://site.com/parent-menu-item-alias/child-menu-item-alias This plugin allows you to switch alias to 'direct' mode and have short URL without aliases of parent menu items: http://site.com/child-menu-item-alias Eg. this page could have URL http://alterbrains.com/direct-alias instead of http://alterbrains.com/joomla-extensions/seo/direct-alias. Another option is not include alias of certain menu item into SEF URL of child items. Additionally to the functionality of Direct Alias (free extension) listed above you can remove IDs from Joomla content articles (in selected categories), categories and tags URLs. So instead of http://site.com/news/34-article-alias you will get http://site.com/news/article-alias. Instead of http://site.com/news/12-news-subcategory-alias you will get http://site.com/news/news-subcategory-alias. Instead of http://site.com/news/12-news-subcategory-alias/34-article-alias you will get http://site.com/news/news-subcategory-alias/article-alias. Optionally it's possible to append Joomla article ID to alias in URL for selected categories: So instead of http://site.com/news/34-article-alias you will get http://site.com/news/article-alias-34. Example for Joomla tags URLs: instead of http://site.com/tags/34-tag-alias you will have http://site.com/tags/tag-alias. Previous native URLs with IDs are redirected to new URLs with 301 status, so search engines index will be preserved. The demo is right here - check our News: it's usual Joomla 'Articles -> Category Blog' page but there are no article IDs. Plugin adds only a single database query per category/article page, but it doesn't matter if Joomla caching is used. It's a nice and simple alternative to monstrous 3rd-party SEF extensions.

This native Joomla 2.5 and 3.x plugin automatically generates new aliases for all your joomla articles in one step by using the title from each article. It gives you the ability to choose between the joomla transliteration aliases or joomla unicode aliases. Joomla provides a great system for creating aliases for each article by using the article-title. But if you need to change between transliteration or unicode then you have to create new aliases manually for each single article. When editing an article there is a spot near the title to edit the alias. So you can do this manually. But what if you don’t want to have to spend many time for this? Wouldn’t it be nice if this is done automatically for all your joomla articles in one step directly in the database? That’s what this plugin is doing. Whenever you have one of these problems: you have to switch from transliteration aliases to unicode aliases in joomla configuration you have to switch from unicode aliases to transliteration aliases in joomla configuration you won't switch between unicode and transliteration but you have wrong aliases (e.g. some date- and time-stamps) you have manually given aliases for your articles and you like to switch back to the title-aliases then the ALIAS-Generator is your solution. Aliases are short pieces of text that represent the title of your Joomla Articles in a machine-friendly format. This format allows only lowercase letters and dashes (-). Aliases are used by Joomla to make Search Engine Friendly URLs. There are technical limitations to the types of characters that can be included in URLs, so Joomla prevents problems with invalid characters by allowing you to specify an alias. You can fill in an alias yourself. If you leave the alias field empty, Joomla will automatically create an alias from the Title field of an item when it is saved. This means that if you edit the title of an item, but you leave the old alias in its field, the alias (and the URL that is created from it) will not change. Empty the alias field if you want generate a new alias. In joomla configuration you can choose the way how joomla is creating these aliases. You can choose between "Transliteration" and "Unicode" aliases. When saving edited content, the former setting attempts to convert, where appropriate, any alias text into the corresponding Latin characters. The latter setting leaves any non-Latin characters in the alias text unchanged. Changing this parameter does not retroactively change aliases, it just changes the behaviour of automatic alias generation for future content editing and creation. Now you can use ALIAS-Generator to do this also for all your existing articles automatically in one step.

Flexible SEF URLs definition using patterns Route 66 allows you to define your site SEF URLs using patterns and not be restricted by limited URL options! Patterns can include any URL friendly character along with some tokens for generating dynamic variables ( like the article's date for example ). Here are some examples of URL patterns you can use in Route 66: blog/{articleYear}/{articleMonth}/{articleAlias} {categoryAlias}/{articleAlias} {articleAlias} page-{articleId} {categoryPath}/{articleAlias} It's that simple to add SEF URLs to your site with Route 66. Check out the documentation to see a list of all available tokens for the extensions that Route 66 supports. Last but not least, Route 66 allows you to define different pattern per language when multiple languages are enabled to your site. Exceptional performance Unlike bulky SEF extensions that can store thousands of URLs to your site's database, Route 66 offers dynamic and high performance URL generation. In short, Route 66 will not impact your website’s performance. Duplicate URLs handling - Canonical Links If Route 66 detects any duplicate URLs it will redirect to the canonical URL automatically. Let's say for example that you have an article with ID 9 and alias "have-a-nice-day" . Let's also assume that you have set up Route 66 using the pattern story/{articleAlias}. The generated URL will be story/have-a-nice-day . URLs like the following which lead to the same article will get redirected to story/have-a-nice-day: index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=9:have-a-nice-day component/content/article/9-have-a-nice-day menu-alias/article/9-have-a-nice-day For optimal SEO, Route 66 automatically adds the canonical url to the page header. This is especially important when pages utilize query and/or anchor variables appended to the URL (story/have-a-nice-day?modal=welcome ).
