Hi,

Somehow it seems the routing plugin for SEF URLs are not using the default template for the website. Instead, it is using the template assigned to the home page.

To get it to work, I had to install Regular Labs' Advance Template Manager which enforces the default template and the assignment of the home page template.

Another issue which may be related is that the modules assigned to the Blog are not showing up on the posted pages. Even with Regular Labs' Advanced Module Manager, that has the "child" settings doesn't work. I could still use that extension to force it, but the Routing plugin for SEF doesn't give the option to lease the sub-folder (i.e. mywebsite/blog/post-title) which would allow me to target anything after the /blog/* pages.

Is there a way to fix this using template overrides?

Thanks,
Winchester

Hello!

When using the router plugin and accessing a link generated by it, there is no Itemid being set. This means that Joomla will set a menu Itemid to the default page.

We've just released a new build (same version) that contains a fix regarding this. Now you will be able to select a menu item id that will be set as active when accessing a link generated by the router plugin.

Re-download and upgrade (install over).
