    What I would really like would be SEO friendly URLs. I know that there are Joomla plugins that can do this--is that in the works with the new upgrade this spring?

    Hi Gwen,

    Yes, SEO friendly URLs are definitely on the radar, but aren't planned for the next big release mentioned in the March newsletter.  We've done some preliminary investigation and, unfortunately, it won't be as simple as installing a plug-in.  For now, article and menu item aliases will redirect to the corresponding, full URLs.  Please add votes and comments to this idea so we can prioritize with the other items already slated for 2011.

    Update: We released SEF URLs this morning.  Menu items automatically inherit the change as well as freshly created article links.  Menu item and article aliases become the URL for the page, but the old, long URLs still work.

    how do I format the keywords?  Is this with commas in between words, a forward space or vertical dash??? Can there be phrases such as "tyrosine kinase inhibitor-related osteonecrosis" - yikes that is a long one!

    Hi Elizabeth - Comma separated is the best format for keywords. Hope that helps!
