Hello, Thank you for your question on removing category and article number IDs from the URLs in Joomla. The article we have describes how to change the URL, but it does not affect the article ID itself. There is not a way to remove the article IDs in Joomla by default. There is a module you may want to check out to see if it meets your needs. It is called Direct Alias. We do not use or support this module, but it is one that we found when researching your issue. Kindest Regards, Scott M
