Alias and Slug overlap

6 years 11 months ago #1661 by bram

This applies whenever you are using a datafeeds menu as default home.

The situation:

You have a datafeeds menu (1) with alias 'home', this menu as fashion items with categories 'dresses','shoes', 'trouser' etc.

You have a second menu (2) with alias 'trousers'

In Joomla 1.5 the 'url' for your first (1) menu would look like


for your second menu the url would look like

/trousers ( might have a slug, not important here)

You see that the url /home/trousers and /trousers are NOT overlapping

In Joomla 2.5 joomla ommits the alias for the default menu item

so the urls for the first menu become


now the urls of the first menu and the second menu DO overlap

So when creating menu aliases you have to be very carefull that the menu aliases are not overlapping with the categories in you datafeeds

Easiest solution is using a different menu as default menu item so the datafeeds menu does ue the alias.
