Nope, 4SEO does nothing with links generated by Joomla. sh404SEF (and now it's successor 4SEF) are dedicated extensions for building a different type of SEF URLs.
- sh404SEF is our older extension, which does both SEF URLs creation and management AND has some SEO feature (Joomla 3 only)
- 4SEF is our latest extension, doing ONLY SEF URLs creation and management (all SEO features are now in 4SEO)
- 4SEF is currently in beta testing
- 4SEF (and sh404SEF) will change ALL URLs on your site to a different format. After that, all URLs are listed in 4SEF/sh404SEF admin panel and you change them to whatever you want.
Also and importantly, 4SEF/sh404SEF creates URLs that:
- are based on an article title and categories, for instance /top-category/sub-category/article-title (how many categories is configurable)
- do not use menu items at all, so you do not need to create menu items for each category or article to have good SEF URLs.
