How to add catergory in sef url

Post by dph71 » Wed Feb 20, 2013 7:15 pm

I have just installed joomla 3.0 and enabled the SEF option and renamed the .htaccess file.

My urls are now looking like this: www.mywebsite.com/article1.html

I want to add the category in the url so it becomes like this: www.mywebsite.com/category/article1.html

How do I fix this without using any sef extension? Is there an options in the general settings or something to fix this? I don't want to do it manually in the article options ofcourse.

Plz let me know.

Hi.
I think you have to create a menu and then assing the right articles to this menu. So for example, you create a category called PS3, then create a menu called PS3 and then you assing the ps3 articles to the menu: http://www.juegossegundamano.net/ps3/ja ... a-mano-ps4 I hope that it helps.
Cheers

Thanks for your reply but this is not the path I want to take. It leaves one with menu's you don't want (or use) and it is way to time consuming regarding managing your website.

Almost unbelievable that something basic like this is not a standard feature in 3.0.
I know use Artio SEF soley for this issue. It's an overkill.
