Introduction

Automatic Links, SEF, SEO & Metadata, Short URL

Allows you to control menu item alias and have short SEF URLs without including aliases of parent menu items. Removes menu items aliases from articles URLs leaving only single article alias.

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

Additionally to the functionality of Direct Alias (free extension) you can remove menu items' aliases from article URLs and leave only single article alias.

So instead of

http://site.com/news/34-article-alias

you will get

http://site.com/34-article-alias or http://site.com/article-alias if IDs are removed.

Active menu item is still identified, hence current menu item is highlighted in menu modules and modules are displayed correctly. Direct article menu items are preserved and have original native URLs unchanged.

Previous native URLs are redirected to new URLs with 301 status, hence search engines index is preserved.

Plugin adds only a single database query if a page is loaded via single article shortened URL. It's a nice and simple alternative to monstrous 3rd-party SEF extensions.

The simplicity of this plug-in is elegant. The pro version removes the #_id in the url. This makes tailoring urls childs-play!

Awesome! I had an issue that was being caused with a conflict with another plug-in. Their response time was great, and they fixed it quick.

Value for money

I'm good. It does what it says... easily; and the support was top-notch. I'm not even sure what I paid for it, but it was totally worth it.

I used this to: Just what it says. I replicated an HTML site to J! and used this to easily match the old url's and keep the structure intact. Definitely a new tool for the box!

So easy to use and do what it says. There is a small bug (with article title) but it's joomla 3.3.6 issue and not the plugin and will be fixed on next joomla update.
