URL?

I haven't posted the URL because I turn the menu item off and I have another forum that is currently active. As soon as I get this Bridge working I'll convert the existing SuperMOD driven forum to SMF. I'll go ahead and give you the URL, just as long as you know that there's another forum which is URL-LINKED from my site ... that's not SMF.

The URL to the forum is:
http://www.drummercafe.com/forum/

The URL to the Joomla frontend is:
http://www.drummercafe.com

And the URL for the Bridge, which is active but not in the menu because it doesn't work with SEF yet and I don't want my visitors clicking on it, is:
http://www.drummercafe.com/index.php/component/option,com_smf/Itemid,4/
I turn the menu item on (publish) for this when I'm working on it, but I'm not working on it I turn it off (unpublish).

The forum is set to not allow Guest access ... but you will be able to see the links for LOGIN, REGISTER, etc., and quickly see that the SEF is not working correctly.

Thanks for your assistance. 8)

Have you edited the file sef.php?

I did a long time ago, back before I could get the mod_rewrite working on my server. Now it's working and I changed the sef.php in Joomla back to its original state. If you think this is a potential cause of the problem  (which you probably do since you mentioned it), I'll go back and upload this file from the original zip file from Joomla.

Yes, please upload the original sef.php.

I am curious, though -- What did you use to edit the file?

Orstio ... you win the prize!!!

I went back and reinstalled the sef.php file from the Joomla zip file, uploaded it and it works.

I guess I thought I ha in d returned the file to its original state, probably because I thought I only commented out line 386 of sef.php and uncommented line 392 of the same file. Either I did something else awhile back and don't remember or I corrupted the file.

I do appreciate your patience in helping me solve this matter.

As soon as I go live with my SMF forum I'll be making a financial contribution.

Many thanks!  ;D
