SEF with Joomla on one.com

Categories Tags

This guide is manly written to work with one.com hosted Joomla installations. However it's most likely that it will work on almost any web hosting service. Using SEF links (Search engine friendly) with Joomla is a really neat feature. The basic idea is to create human readable address links. So, instead of having your links looking like this


They could look like this


Setting up the .htaccess

First, create a file called htaccess.txt, or use the one shipped with Joomla. Paste the following code into the file.

#The line below must(!) be commented out on one.com
#It may not be required if you use another web hosting service
#Options +FollowSymLinks

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} mosConfig_[a-zA-Z_]{1,21}(=|\%3D) [OR]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} base64_encode.*\(.*\) [OR]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} (\<|%3C).*script.*(\>|%3E) [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} GLOBALS(=|\[|\%[0-9A-Z]{0,2}) [OR]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} _REQUEST(=|\[|\%[0-9A-Z]{0,2})
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php [F,L]

RewriteBase /

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/index.php
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} (/|\.php|\.html|\.htm|\.feed|\.pdf|\.raw|/[^.]*)$  [NC]
RewriteRule (.*) index.php
RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization},L]

Now, upload it to your web root (the same place where you keep your website) and rename the htaccess.txt to .htaccess

Setting up Joomla

Use the admin panel. Navigate to the Global Configuration ยป Site.

Make your SEO Settings look like this
