There was one main category with the name and the slug 'notebook'. Using notebooks as name for the subcategory under the main category notebook did throw a soft 404 error. Same thing can happen, if a category is linked by a joomla alias link. For example: If the category notebook as root category contains notebooks, Pad PC a.s.o. the slug would normally be: notebook/notebooks or notebook/pad-pc. You have a second root category called bags for example with subcategories like notebook bag, mobile phone bag a.s.o, but you would like to put the bags as menu subcategory to the notebooks category the url would be notebook/bags. To prevent it you can create bags as a hidden menu and put Joomla alias into the notebook category tree. Advantage: the category bag keeps the original url. It shows /bags/... and not notebook/bags/.... But not so with the VM router. It obviously works sometimes and sometimes not, especially with the sort function it produces the soft 404 error. If a soft 404 error occurs and the joomla cache is activated (even if you tell it to not cache the menu), that error is shown until you clear the cache.So for now the best way is to not use Joomla Alias with VM categories.
