I am refactoring a website which has the main menu items that link directly to a specific article of corresponding categories.
Now for each of these menu items, there are children blog category menu items (hidden), for each of these categories.
Until last night, this setup was working fine.This morning, when I clicked on the main menu items, I am getting "Redirect Loop" on the browser. The same happens if I try to reach at the article that is linked with the single article menu items, from within the category blog.
No SEF extension is being used, nor there is something special in the htaccess that could produce this.
My guess is that Joomla is getting confused and is going back and forward between the possible urls for that article. Note that I am also getting a redirect loop with Joomla's core SEF and rewrite disabled for these articles.
So trying to access the article with its non-sef url like:
I am getting a redirect loop for it, which ends up with a url:
this is actually the url that I am redirected and that stacks on the browser for all articles in question.
What's going on here?
