    Hey guys, I need someone to fix my joomla 1.5 site.

    My problem is: on my site: http://www.knightstemplarwales.com/
    when you go on any of the links on the side to categories it comes up with the page content but no theme, such as: http://www.knightstemplarwales.com/index.php/faq

    also if i click on a link on that page it goes to: http://www.knightstemplarwales.com/index.php/index.php/faq
    having the index.php part twice.

    If you can fix this for me I will give you $20 (paypal) im pretty sure this will be some easy php. so it will be quick money.

    I can take a look, but I need the ftp access details and the joomla admin username/pw. Can't send pm though, because I do not have enough posts :/

    From a quick view it seems that you haven't setup your SEF plugin properly or haven't installed it at all.

    Joomla links look like this: index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=19&Itemid=27

    so I guess it has to do with a Search Engine Friendly plugin.

    I didn't suggest it because it will disable the sef url's - fixing the problem so the sef urls work should get the 20$ :p

    I'm not really fussed about it, but because I said I would pay $20 i think its fair to say if it can be fixed ill pay, if you give me code etc or anything I can do without loosing my install / reinstalling ill give you $20

    alright...
    make a backup of configuration.php,
    edit the original, search for
    Code:
    $live_site = '';
    change it to
    Code:
    $live_site ='h*t*t*p://w*w*w.knightstemplarwales.c*o*m/' 
    and see if that does help. Do delete the *'s in the url. The board does not let me type in the correct url. In case problems occur, you still have your backup.
    does it help?

    Hmmm I think it has to do with mod_rewrite ;) Go to your root Search for htaccess.txt and then rename it to .htaccess and then on SEF setting turn on MOD_REWRITE . And i think from there you are good to go .

    You should use sh404sef with .htaccess.
    It's easier to watch|change your generated links and avoid duplication.

    Just my 5cents :x

    I will try help you, and i hink it easy to do it

    > Go to your admin.
    > After open, Select "Global Configuration"
    > After open : There are 3 menu appears :

    Site | System | Server.

    > Now Choose the "Site" it open, check on "SEO Settings" you have to make like this :
    - Search Engine Friendly URLs : Yes.
    - Use Apache mod_rewrite : Yes.
    - Add suffix to URLs : Yes. (This will add ".html" at the the end of the url).
    and other setting leave it default.

    > at "System" menu :
    "Cache Settings" setting.
    - Cache : Yes.
    - Cache Time : 900.
    and other leave it default.

    > at "Server" menu :
    - GZIP Page Compression : Yes (This option will make your site load fast).
    and other leave it default.

    After that, Press Save.

    Now you should be chage the "htaccess.txt" to ".htaccess", you can chenge it thourgh your CPanel Hosting.
    You don't need to use sh404sef or any extenions paid, because joomla its already have it, just duit what i said.

    Hope can help you.
