Simple Custom Router

December 14th, 2013

The Simple Custom Router is a Joomla! extension to associate paths with internal Joomla! queries.

For example, you can associate the path “hello-world” with the query “option=com_content&view=article&id=42”, so when a user types the URL “http://yourJoomla/BaseUrl/hello-world” the article with id 42 is loaded, and when the internal Joomla! URL “index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=42” is translated to a humanly readable URL, “http://yourJoomla/BaseUrl/hello-world” will be generated.

Features:
-Paths and internal Joomla! queries can be parametrized using the PHP regular expressions syntax.
-Optional cache for the generated paths and queries.
-Manager interface to add, edit and remove the routes in the Joomla! backend.

Versions:
-Joomla! 1.7.x/2.5.x: Simple Custom Router 0.1
-Joomla! 3.x: Simple Custom Router 0.1.2
