How to make URLs shorter

Post by chenh » Wed Sep 11, 2013 1:22 pm


I am new to Joomla and really need help with this.

Currently, the URL for the careers page on my company's website is, BUT we need it to be this Does anyone have any advice on how I can go about making the URL shorter? I have been told that creating a URL redirect is probably the best and simplest option. BUT I'm faced with the confusion of how to create a page that uses the URL???

i think you create different category then make /careers - on parent, also enable your SEF and Use URL rewriting then make aliases on your URL's
