Contact ID page gives 404 errors

Postby benedets » Mon Aug 22, 2011 5:47 pm

I recently upgraded to Joomla 1.5.23. Since then I started having trouble with my contact page on It gives a 404 error on Firefox and Safari, but only on certain computers. I've tested this myself and some of my website users have also emailed about this 404 error.

Originally, the menu was set up as a Standard Contact Layout. When I clicked on the menu link it gave me a 404 error. I'm using the sh404sef component, so I tried navigating to the original menu URL and got a 404 error again.

Then I switched to the Category Contact Layout, and that works fine. But when you click on the link for an individual contact page on that page it gives a 404 error.

So from this I am guessing that the problem is with the original contact ID URL generated by Joomla. I just don't know how to fix it!

You can see the Category Contact Layout page (that is working now) here:

And the individual contact ID (that is giving a 404 error) here: ... i?catid=12

Any help you can give me is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
