Alias

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

An alias is an alternative name for something which (you hope) will enable the 'item' to turn up in search results, so your site can be found more easily.

What types of item have aliases and which don't?

Why don't we just set the original name to something that will turn up in search results?

Thanks for any replies...

An alias - is a short text snippet used to represent link titles and is used by Joomla to create Search Engine Friendly (SEF) urls

only lower case text is allowed with hypens dividing words - it will be created automatically by Joomla from the menu link text but can be changed by the user

Applies to articles, menu items and categories
