ARTIO JoomSEF - Repetition of menu and category titles in ur

Post by cmsdev » Sat May 11, 2013 10:34 pm

I am using JoomSEF to get rid of article IDs in my urls. It works in that regard, but I am getting both the menu title and category title showing up in my urls, like this: ... -lifestyle ... s-fool-you ... troversial

My categories need to be named after their respective menu item, but don't want this repetition.

I am getting this even though I have Add Menu Title to URL set to NO.

I am suspecting there is an issue with JoomSEF, because when I set Add article ID to URL and Add category ID to URL, to YES (just to test), the IDs don't display in the urls (even after I've purged the joomla cache and cleared the browser cache).

I contacted ARTIO about this issue, but their support is the worst I've ever encountered, so I'm hoping for better luck here. I will be happy to PM somebody admin login to have a look at my settings. Thanks for a great community guys!
