Hi,

I have set up a site using Joomla and the K2 extension and I have Search Engine Friendly URLs turned ON.

All of the links from my main menu work fine but when I try and hit an actual item, I get the following error:

404 - Item not found

When I turn SEF urls OFF it works fine and loads the item. but I dont want to turn these off.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

It will search for the alias name that is given for the article or menu name

for example

domain.com/index.php/services.html
or
domain.com/services/main.html

If you click this link:

http://tinyurl.com/4ncf63l

Then you will see that there are 2 items under the drawing category, both of which go to a 404 page.
