Hello,

i have an issue, after the wizard to import data from the sh404SEF database, the urls have all changed, see example below.

How can I bring them back to the previous ones? Thank you

Hi

Not sure I understand what you mean. 4SEO does not do anything with URLs, it does not import URLs at all and does not change them on your site.

If you do not have sh404SEF on your site, then indeed URLs are going to be different, most likely you get the native Joomla SEF URLs.

4SEO can import custom meta data and redirects from sh404SEF.

The 4SEF extension - which is available now in beta testing as part of all sh404SEF subscriptions, will import and build URLs (but nothing else).

I updated the 4SEO extension and it advised me to import the metadata present in the SH404SEF component. Then he imported the url of the component database but once done the urls on the site are all changes as shown in the example

Hi

Like I said before, 4SEO does not do anything about URLs. It advised you to import meta data and redirects. Not URLs.

URLs are managed by 4SEF, a new extension that can create / manage URLs just like sh404SEF, on both Joomla 4 and Joomla 4.

the urls on the site are all changes as shown in the example

That's because sh404SEF is now DISABLED after the import, as mentioned on all the import screens. You should enable it back if you plan on keeping using it. And start looking into 4SEF, if you plan on keeping the same URLs.

Of course, you should be doing this on a test copy of your site first, not the real live site.

Thanks, now the URLs are back as before after clicking the SH404SEF component on the Enable URL Optimization option.

When will it be possible to install 4SEF? The urls will remain the same, right?

Hi

The urls will remain the same, right?

For Joomla content, yes. For most 3rd-party extensions, yes as well. For some 3rd-party extensions that have dedicated sh404SEF plugin,  the plugin format has changed so the extensions developers need to update their plugin.

When will it be possible to install 4SEF?

You can download the beta version today from the Download page. The more people test the beta version, the faster it will be ready for general use. As mentioned, it's best to do this on a test copy of your site but you can also have both sh404SEF and 4SEF at the same time and disable sh404SEF when you test 4SEF, and vice-versa.
