A short description about your blog

There are times when you may not want the ability to edit a Virtuemart product from the front end. This may be due to a poorly designed template that just doesn't work well with this feature.

To remove the edit button from the product detail page, you will need to open the following file:

/administrator/components/com_virtuemart/html/shop.product_details.php

In order to use Joomla's built in SEF Urls feature, you must first enable it. To do so, go to the backend of the site (/administrator) and go to the "Site" tab and select "Global Configuration."

On that page you will see the following:

Set the "Search Engine Friendly URLs" to Yes and the "Use Apache mod_rewrite" to Yes.

You will next need to rename the htaccess.txt file in your root directory to .htaccess as seen below:



That is all there is too it. Joomla will now automatically change all your standard dynamic URLs in your content items to more friendly URLs.

Editing content in Joomla is extremely easy. You can edit content from the front end of the website, or you can edit content from the backend of the website.

To edit content from the front end of the website you must first be logged in. It is important to note that you must be logged into the front end of the site in order to edit from the front end.


Creating Search Engine Friendly URLs in Joomla

As mentioned in my last blog, Joomla uses dynamic URLs. These URLs contain characters for passing information to the current web page. These URLs can be long and complicated and may not be indexed by many of the major search engines. The following URL is an example of a dynamic URL:

http://www.lab11.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=12&Itemid=32

Understanding Joomla URLs

Today I will be discussing how to create and use URLs in the Joomla CMS.

Joomla uses dynamic URLs to display content. This means that the variables inside the URL determine what content is shown, what template is used, and also what modules will be displayed on the page.

http://www.your-site.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=35&Itemid=46
The example URL is shown above is a basic URL for a content item. From this URL you can see that the id of the content item is 35 and that the Itemid used for this page is 46.
