seo-settings-unicode-aliasesUnicode Aliases is the next Joomla 3.0 SEO Setting that we are reviewing. This setting controls how non-latin characters are handled in your aliases, whether they are saved or converted to a date and time.

To adjust Unicode Alias settings in Joomla 3.0:

  1. Log into your Joomla 3.0 Dashboard
  2. In the left menu, under SYSTEM click Global Configuration
  3. Under SEO Settings you will find the Unicode Aliases setting. Select either Yes / No and then click Save in the top left of the page.
  4. Test your changes!

    In our testing, we created a new article and set Hindi text as the article alias.
    hindi-alias

    When Unicode Aliases is set to NO
    If Unicode Aliases is set to NO, when saving the article the alias is converted to a timestamp.
    converted-to-timestamp converted-to-timestamp-in-url

     

    When Unicode Aliases is set to YES
    If Unicode Aliases is set to YES, when saving the article the non-latin characters are preserved.
    non-latin-text-preserved
    preserved-in-url-alias
