Title: Native 1.5 SEF URL's and 1.1
Post by: latristesse on June 18, 2008, 19:55:35 pm
At what point will I be able to use to Joomla 1.5's native SEF URL functionality and VirtueMart?  If I make menu items pointing to VM categories, then the Joomla SEF holds up but if the user clicks on a link from within VM content to categories, then the URL is non-SEF.  Also, of course, if I don't create a menu item for the product, then there is no SEF URL for the flypage.

Kind of a bummer to have to install an additional component when Joomla finally has native SEF URL's.

Definitely agreed there.

Any ideas when this support will be implemented in VM?  I'd think that development for 1.5 native SEF URLs would supersede any additional component options.

It is the Joomla team who should be fixing their version of SEF, and it looks like they will be trying to do this for Joomla 1.6, but in the meantime third party developers are working to address the issues.
sh404SEF (http://extensions.siliana.com/en/sh404SEF-and-url-rewriting/sh404SEF-Joomla-SEF-URL-without-URL-rewriting-or-.htaccess.html) does a good job.
