The Blog article URL is like the following: http://example.com/en/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=166&Itemid=140. It only shows the modules that are assigned specifically to the homepage along with the article.

However, if I disable the Search Engine Friendly URLs in the admin settings, it works fine. It only happens to the blog article page, the blog overview page displays fine with proper modules. The Joomla version I am using is 3.6.5.

It only started happening recently, no module or Joomla update happened recently. Only new articles have been inserted, I tried disabling those articles too, no luck. Can someone guide on resolving this issue?

  • Are you using Advanced Module Manager or sh404 (or similar)? Apr 26, 2018 at 15:37
  • Nope, just the standard Joomla's SEO Friendly Url Apr 26, 2018 at 16:41

It appears that specific version of Joomla had trouble getting the lang param. Changing the URL to http://example.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=166&Itemid=140&lang=en resolved it. Not sure how or why, but it works now.
