Joomla Enable SEF

To enable SEO for your Joomla site:

  • In the SEO Settings section enable “Search Engine Friendly URLs” & “Use URL Rewriting”

  • Enabling “Adds Suffix to URL” will add .html to most pages (this will depend on the MIME type), for example https://domain.tld/index.html or https://domain.tld/index.php
  • Enabling “Unicode Aliases” will use the exact text in the alias of each object instead of using transliteration for non ANSI aliases.
  • Final step for this to work you need to rename the file htaccess.txt to .htaccess in the root of your web folder.

mv htaccess.txt .htaccess
