How can I enable friendly URLs in Joomla?
Friendly URLs in Joomla are a great way to make sure your visitors can easily navigate your website. They make it easier for search engines to find and index your content, and make it easier for users to find what they’re looking for. Luckily, Joomla makes it easy to enable friendly URLs. In this article, we’re going to look at how to enable friendly URLs in Joomla.
Step 1: Enable SEO Friendly URLs
The first step to enabling friendly URLs in Joomla is to enable SEO-friendly URLs. This can be done in the Joomla Global Configuration under the ‘SEO Settings’ tab. There, you can check the ‘Search Engine Friendly URLs’ box, and save the changes.
Step 2: Install a Plugin
The next step is to install a plugin that will help you generate friendly URLs. We recommend the ‘SH404SEF’ plugin, which is a popular option. This plugin will allow you to easily create and manage your URLs, and it also has other useful features such as redirects, metadata, and analytics.
Step 3: Setup the Plugin
Once the plugin is installed, you’ll need to setup it up correctly. This involves enabling the friendly URL feature, and setting up the ‘Base URL’ setting. You can find these settings in the ‘Basic Settings’ tab of the plugin.
