I'm a complete newbie to Joomla here (been working with it for a few days only) and wanted to ask what is probably a silly question. For clarification I'm not using any SEF extensions/plugins - only Google Structured Data.
How do I change a page URL from something like: sitename.com/component/newsfeed/component/newsfeed/login to simply sitename.com/login ? I've enabled SEF friendly URLs and URL rewriting in the global settings, and this has fixed all of the pages accessible via the top menu, however any page that has another page as its parent rather than the top menu itself has an unbelievably convoluted link which is unfriendly to search engines. Is there any way that I can fix this manually? I've tried changing the "alias" parameter on each menu page but it doesn't do anything.
Many thanks for any help. Apologies if I'm missing something obvious.
