Introduction

SEF, SEO & Metadata

4SEF offers customizable SEF URLs for Joomla 3 to 5


4SEF URLs are fixed, predictable and independent from the Joomla menu structure. Finally change your menu and navigation without all links being broken.

SEF URLs are generated automatically but any single of them can be manually customized to exactly what you want and need.

  • SEF URLS are based on content titles and categories, not menu items
  • Change the site menu: URLs will not change anymore, you don't lose your SEO signals
  • No need to create menu items for each article at all
  • Content linked from different places always the same URL, no more duplicates
  • Many options to configure URLs: with or without categories, ids, date,...

  • Customize a SEF URL by just clicking on it in the list

  • A redirect is automatically created from the previous version to the new, so you don't lose SEO signals

4SEF creates SEF URLS in the exact same way as sh404SEF, our previous SEF URL extension.

4SEF runs the same on Joomla 3 and 4.

It is available in Arabic, Chinese, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Lithuanian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Slovak, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish.

Functionality
i dont know what this wanna to do, but its just a big mess and tons of problems. and its very expensive extension, to do just problems.
Ease of use
you have ZERO chance to use this. nobody understand how this want to work and how to set it up.
Value for money
its a robery. before there was sh404, great extension. now he create 2 extesions, 5x more expensive than sh404 and its even dont do the job
I used this to: nothing because, it creates epic mess in my websites and destroys all my seo results.
Owner's reply: Hi Feri,

Sorry you had trouble using 4SEF! It solves the #1 SEO issue in all Joomla sites since the start of Joomla.
I know you are familiar with that because you appear to be an sh404SEF user for some time (sh404SEF is the extension that pre-dates 4SEF, widely used since 2007).

Yes, some 3rd-party extensions do things that "work" with Joomla SEF (but should not) and breaks when using the stricter, more SEO-oriented 4SEF operation. I won't compromise the SEO principles to accomodate a few extensions/templates that don't follow Joomla AP, sorry.

All the best for you future Joomla websites!
Functionality
Maybe it's useful, but, since the day it was installed, it's created WAY more headaches than it ever solved. Complicated to understand; moe s
Ease of use
NOT EASY. It's a very complicated extension. I'm no code bunny, but I'm no slouch either. Always managed to configure and frustrate my attempt
Support
So-so. Often it's "my fault, the extension is working fine" or it's "the other developer's extension".
Documentation
As far as finding a solution to the issues I've had, it's been of no help at all.
Value for money
Whilst it's not terribly expensive, and did fix the initial problem, overall, it's been expensive in time and frustration.
I used this to: I had an issue I couldn't figure out. I had someone look at it and they said I should buy sh404SEF. That fixed the initial problem, but ongoing use and administration has been a nightmare. Would never recommend it.
Functionality
All features i need to control my websites links easily included in 4SEF !!
Ease of use
Modern interface and very intuitive, but i really don't like dark colors in component interface.
Support
Documentation
Value for money
Very good price, and i hope there will be more competitive components for urls customization like 4SEF for Joomla 4
I used this to: to customize my website links and migrate from Joomla 3 that use sh404sef safely
