I spent a lot of time to solve this problem!

In Joomla! 3.3.0 the file "root/includes/application.php" doesn't exist anymore. you can find it in "root/libraries/cms/application/site.php" and inside it, there is a getTemplate() function that you can modify adding $this->route();

I hope it can help someone
bye

Hello,
I am so new to this, how do you get to the root file? Thank you for your time!

root stands for the root of your joomla site.
if www.mywebsite.com is your site, www.mywebsite.com is your root. In this folder there are many folders: "administrator", "bin", "cache", "cli" ecc... you can find the folder "libraries" and following "www.mywebsite.com/libraries/cms/application/site.php" you can find site.php.

I required SEF URL’s and multiple templates. I can’t believe this post dates back to 2011 and a permanent fix is not in place. Anyway, the fix for me (Joomla 3.7.2) was editing /libraries/cms/application/site.php

I searched for ‘Get the id of the active menu item’ then applied pretty much the exact same fix as @maneraluca did in Post 5:

Code: Select all

		// Get the id of the active menu item
		$menu = $this->getMenu();
		$item = $menu->getActive();

		if (!$item)
		{
			// NEW CODE
			$this->route();
			//END NEW CODE

			$item = $menu->getItem($this->input->getInt('Itemid', null));
		}

Hi there,
In Joomla 3.9.1 /libraries/cms/application/site.php doesn't exist.
I just applied the change by maneraluca in /libraries/src/Application/SiteApplication.php

// Get the id of the active menu item
$menu = $this->getMenu();
$item = $menu->getActive();

if (!$item)
{
// NEW CODE
$this->route();
//END NEW CODE

$item = $menu->getItem($this->input->getInt('Itemid', null));
}

It worked.
