How to remove time stamps from Joomla! SEF URLs?

Due to an incorrect alias or a non-English character in your category names, Joomla! may replace the category name with a timestamp like 2013-01-08-03-45-44.

To resolve the problem, follow the steps below:

  • Step 1: Change the menu item type for the menu item from “External URL” to “Text separator“;
  • Step 2: After step 1, an “Alias” field will appear under the “Menu title” field which will contain the time stamp;
  • Step 3: Edit the alias field and change the timestamp to what you want to replace the timestamp with;
  • Step 4: Save the menu item;
  • Step 5: Change the menu item type back to “External URL“.
