Introduction

Automatic Links, Site Management, SEF, SEO & Metadata, Short URL

Allows you to control menu item alias and have short SEF URLs without including aliases of parent menu items.

  • Favourite
  • Report

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.

Perfect plugin, very good support!



Plugin is working very easy and it does what it has to do.



On a large database (+ 1k menu-items) it took a lot of processing time on the server.

The support was perfect. Within a couple of days they redesigned the pre-cache routes. With the new patch, the processing time was decreased to a minimum :D



Good service! Thanks a lot!

Great Plugin

Thank you for your plugin. It's easy to setup and I just needed to change the menu alias button to direct instead of relative to make it work.

Awesome

This resolved a lot of issues I was having and now I can ditch the complex SEF extension that I was using and just use this.



It's a fantastic extension!
The best joomla extension I ever used! Thank you very much!
