How to change the URL alias of Joomla 3.1 articles
As we set the title of the article to, "This is my first test article", Joomla used the article's title as the alias. In this tutorial, we'll show you how to change this alias. The steps below walk through this process after you have already published the article, but you can easily set this option while you're writing the article for the first time.
Setting an article's alias in Joomla 3.0:
- Log into your Joomla 3.0 dashboard
- In the top menu, click Content and then click Article Manager.
- In the list of articles, click on the title of the article that you would like to change the alias for
- In the top menu, click Publishing Options. You will then see the Alias shown. Make the adjustments that you would like, and then click Save in the top left menu.
When you visit your article again by navigating to it from your Joomla 3.0 homepage, you will see that the URL has changed. In our testing, we changed the alias from this-is-my-first-test-article to new-alias-goes-here.

How do you get rid of those annoying numbers in the page url. Take a look at this page url for instance:
I tried the above steps but somehow those numbers 8 and 2 still show up out of nowhere. Thanks

To do so, all you have to do is edit your template file located at:
components/com_content/router.php located within your template's HTML folder, and change this line:
$advanced = $params->get('sef_advanced_link', 0);
$advanced = $params->get('sef_advanced_link', 1);
Once complete, you should see that your URLs have changed.
