Questions about sh404SEF
- 4SEF produces SEF URLs identical to sh404SEF in most cases. It can import custom URLs from sh404SEF. It works on Joomla 3 & 4.
- 4SEO is the all-in-one SEO extension for Joomla with much more features than sh404SEF. It can import meta data and redirects from sh404SEF. It works on Joomla 3 & 4.
How long will sh404SEF be supported?
sh404SEF will be supported as long as Joomla 3 is relevant. Joomla 3 will be supported by the Joomla project for 2 years after the release of Joomla 4, which means August 17, 2023.
We may extend this deadline depending on requests but please note that sh404SEF is in maintenance mode. Security issues and small bugs will be fixed but no new feature will be added, while some features may be removed (for instance the Google Analytics data reports).
I use another SEF extension, can I import data into sh404SEF?
Yes! We have an Importer plugin that can import URLs, meta data and redirects from MijoSEF and JoomSEF. The importer is a separate Joomla! plugin, you can find it on the download page.
Note that this may provide you with an upgrade path to Joomla 4, as you can move from MijoSEF or JoomSEF to sh404SEF, and then to 4SEF, which works on both Joomla 3 and 4.
