How to change page URL?

Postby THarrso » Thu Jun 07, 2012 12:57 am

I'm using J2.5 with the Beez2 template and I've edited some of the existing pages and created some new ones. How do I change the URLs on these pages so they are more user friendly?
I see my new FAQ page, for instance, is called http://font-converter.com/index.php/joomlaorg
How did it get the name joomlaorg and how can I change it?

thanks,
Ted

The second thing you should turn on is Apache mod_rewrite in Joomla Global Configuration, but make sure, that you rename your htaccess.txt into .htaccess, you can find this file in your Joomla root.

By this configuration, you will get rid of index.php, then your link will look like
http://font-converter.com/joomlaorg

The title of the article is "Frequently Asked Questions".
The alias is "faq"
The category is "FAQ".
I'm at a loss to see where it's getting "joomlaorg" from.

re: Apache mod_rewrite
I'd like to do this, but where is this in Global Config? I looked in all the tabs and couldn't find it.

I did notice a couple other things that might have an effect on the URL:
SEF URLs is turned on.
Use URL rewriting is turned off
Adds Suffix to URL is turned off
Unicode Aliases is turned off

Any idea where the "joomlaorg" is coming from and how I can change it to "faq" in the URL?

Thanks,
Ted

Found it. It was the menu alias.

Now if somebody could just direct me to Apache mod_rewrite ?

Thanks,
Ted

Sorry to be dense, but I just don't see it.
My Global Config has 5 tabs: Site, Server, System, Permissions, Text Filters. Looking through each of them I can't find anything called URL rewriting or referencing Apace.
Could you please be more explicit?

Thanks,
Ted

In the Site tab, look right under SEO Settings.

OK, got it. I've turned URL rewriting on and yes, now the URLS appear without the "index" part. But I get 404 errors on both pages when I try to access them.
I found my .htaccess file was already named .htaccess, so I didn't have to change it, bit it seems to be empty. Is there something I need to put in it to make this work?
Or something else I need to do?

Thanks,
Ted

It must contain the content of htaccess.txt

Delete .htaccess and rename htaccess.txt to .htaccess

Thanks, but when I do that I get an Internal Server Error.
Do I need to edit something in the htaccess?

Thanks,

.htaccess/web.config: No (ReWrite Enabled but no .htaccess?)


You do not have a .htaccess file. Did you name the file ".htaccess" with a leading dot?

Re: How to change page URL?

Hmmm, and now that I've named it back to .htaccess again it seems to be working correctly.
Thanks for all your help!

hi there. Edit the page where "you are at", click on the title of the page that you want to edit. Just below the title it says "permalink" and right next to that "edit".

but make sure, that you rename your htaccess.txt into .htaccess, you can find this file in your Joomla root. Also, look under the SEO settings.
