    I have taken over a joomla site. Most of the URLs are search engine friendly with actual page names, such as woodburningstores.html. However, when I add new articles I am not coming up with search engine friendly URLs - instead I get something like this:

    NZ3000Accessories

    143.html - if you click on the link look at the page name - not sure why the link is showing up as NZ300 (which is what I want).

    I have put the information in the appropriate places and still can't get the new pages to get the actual page name or alias that I put in to show up, instead of numbers.

    Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

    The best way to handle these if by using the sh404SEF plugin. It works as a component and is quite powerful.
    BUT... if the site already has Google PR higher than 0, be careful because it breaks the recognized links to sub-pages. There is an alias function that I believe you can add but it could be a lengthy process if you have a large site.
