JomSocial - SEF Problems

Post by Scathdesolas » Sun Jan 03, 2010 7:21 am

Okay so I got JomSocial fresh install and some things don't work right with SEF. It's really annoying. I want SEF on and yet it seems I can't have it because JomSocial links don't work. Such as Profile, Edit Avatar, etc. Any user task basically won't work in JomSocial with SEF on. I hate it.

Any Ideas?

I fixed this using JoomSEF. Find the plugin extension for JomSocial, that you install via the JoomSEF component.

I'm having the same problem and jomsocial is supposed to work with the native joomla sef. I really would rather fix it than rely on another 3rd party component I need to keep updated!

You can try sh404sef, disabling sef links for JomSocial.

Is this still an issue. My site is very reliant on no external 3rd party sef. But I would like to use jomsocial. But it sounds like I cannot.

I will go to church the day that the search engines dont penalise according to url's it would make everyones lives easier.

Before JoomSEF can work the Joomla SEF/SEO must work.

Turn of JoomSEF and set Joomla the Joomla SEF/SEO, if you have problems then http://tiny url.com/seosef may help.

When you have Joomla SEF working correctly then

Look at the extensions in the JoomSEF CP add any that you need. More can be obtained from http://www.artio.net/en/joomsef/artio-j ... extensions . Please read http://www.artio.net/en/joomsef/artio-j ... nstall_ext

Purge SEF URL's

Turn on JoomSEF.

Select Manage SEF URLs

That should have everything working correctly.

yes but my point is i dont want to use a 3rd party sef plugin, like so many people.

So please can someone confirm if the native sef works with jomsocial ?

thanks

No it does not. But Jomsocial may have a setting so that it follows Joomla's SEF. As it is a commercial 3rd party extension perhaps they provide customer support. Their documentation or support will tell you if Jomsocial is SEF compliant.

Perhaps you could ask them how to configure your Jomsocial so it works properly ?

Sorry for digging up old post. JomSocial is designed to work perfectly with Joomla native SEF system. Third party SEF components may refer to our router.php should they are interested to create better looking URLs through their SEF component.

For any SEF issue, kindly post in our official forum for a timely support. =)
