Post by queengab » Fri Jul 05, 2013 9:46 am

Hi to all,

i'm doing my first site in joomla 3. It's very owerfull and full of options but i alittle bit disordered.
I have a problem. I enabled multilanguage site from content language, i enabled also the plugins and create right categories tree Italiano and English.
Now certain time happans that i have url like /eng/home/xx-category/xx-item and the page don't show nothing and return to the home.
Why? What is this?

The core Joomla SEF URLs build urls based on the alias of your category/article/menu (CAM) item. ;)

To turn that on:
In the root of the directory Joomla is installed in and look for htaccess.txt and rename it .htaccess
In the admin > global configuration > site tab look for SEO Settings and select Yes Use URL rewriting (unless you dont want the .html extensions, that one is optional)
please see SEO Settings for joomla! 3.1: ... 0.9D_Group
