I have an article that I want to link to directly using html rather than create a menu item that links to it. I was able to do this in Drupal but when I try the same thing in Joomla it doesn't seem to work, i.e. when I type in
www.mysite.com/legal-notice I get a 404 error. If I add the article as a menu item then I can do this, but then I notice that the menu item has an alias as well, which is the same, so maybe it is just that that I am navigating to rather than the article alias.
Is this just something you can't do in Joomla? Surely not? I have SEF urls turned on, btw.
