Hell everyone,
I have a problem with joomla urls which i am trying to make user friendly.

so far with mod rewrite i have managed to come up with a url like this; http://www.edulinksuganda.com/component/option,com_artband/task,details/id,59184/Itemid,75/idd,19/.
but i want it to be something like: http://www.edulinksuganda.com/componentname/schools/schoolname. Please help me rectify this problem.

Any help will by highly appreciated. Thank You

Hi Saiprem,

Thank you so much for your reply. Iam trying out the module however i have some hard coded urls in my joomla code and am afraid they may be distorted when i use the component. Any way to go around this issue.

Thanks in advance

Have you tried installing the component and checking for it, Try in your local system, If it works then Ok. Otherwise we need to look for some other way(Some other way means we have to remove the hard coded URL's)

Hello Saiprem,

Thank you for the reply. i have another inquiry though, by using SEO i thought i would solve the problem of google being able to search my website's key words. Because google does not get any of my keywords when i search.

Do you think using SEO will solve my problem or is there another way around it.

Thanx for the support.

If your site wants to display in google, you need to submit sitemap.xml to google.

Linkup you site with your google webcentral account and upload the sitemap.xml in your web server. Give the same path to google.

The SEO component used in joomla to display the urls as search engine friendly.

I think it is not necessary to change anything in the .htaccess file, Please revert it back and just put the older one, hope everything will works for you.

If you don't have older htaccess with you, Just get it from joomla downloaded code it will be with the name of "htaccess.txt", you just rename the file to .htaccess

Hello Everyone,

Thanks to Saiprem, i managed to make my urls user friendly though now i have a problem with removing the 'seo by Artio' that shows up on every page in v.2.3.2. It is working perfectly aside from that problem.
