Hi,

I think I wrote a seperate email to the support team some time ago, but I will write about this problem again here on the forum, because this is really important.

Heres is the problem:

When you look at the URLs generated in Jom Classifieds front-end you can see the following problems, regarding SEO:

On an advert page the URL looks like this:
www.mywebsite.com/menu-alias/advert/[advert-ID]-[advert-alias]

So, if the menu alias is "adverts" and the advert-ID is "55" and the advert-alias is "my-new-advert", then the URL will look like this:
www.mywebsite.com/adverts/advert/55-my-new-advert

Now, the problem lies in the "/advert/" - part of the URL. This does not make any sense to have in the URL and there does not seem to be a way to remove or change this.
Actually the best solution (normal solution) would be to replace "advert" with the category alias

So, if the category of the advert has an alias like "computer-accessories" then the URL should look like this:
www.mywebsite.com/adverts/computer-accessories/55-my-new-advert

Actually I can see that the breadcrumbs generated by jom classifieds are perfect, so it is only the URL that needs to be optimized.

Also, I can see that the category pages also need a little SEO/SEF tweek.
If I go to a category page then the URL looks like this:
www.mywebsite.com/menu-alias/category/[category-ID]-[category-alias]
Here the problem lies in the "/category/" - part of the URL. This does not make any sense to have in the URL if your site is non-english and there does not seem to be a way to remove or change this.

Please inform me what files I need to at if I want to change these URLs generated by Jom Classifieds
