I did not have idea that changing SEF URLs may generate error. When i found error i just moved that menu item to trash and created a new one the error was resolved. let me try buy reverting back the SEF URLs and i will let you know. thanks..

After recreating a new menu the error above mentioned was resolved. But again i am getting same
error today. I could not find what mistake i have done, as per my knowledge i have created menu correctly. The SQL displayed does not gives any error when i execute it in database.
Error message
- an out-of-date bookmark/favourite... i did not get what this mean.
-a mistyped address... the url is correct.
-a search engine that has an out-of-date listing for this site... where can i set the date of listing and make it to display always . Kindly help me.

Hello vinuta,

Have you recently modified your Joomla SEF URLs Search Engine Friendly ones for SEO?

The error message that Joomla is giving you out is just a very generic catch-all error page. We can't pull up your account with us based off the e-mail account you have on file. If you'd like to share the website you're having these issues with we can attempt to further diagnose this issue for you.

Hello vinuta,

I would think that the SEF URLs (Search Engine Friendly) being changed could probably have something to do with the problems you're encountering. If you change it back, does your menu start working again?
