AceSEF is a powerfull and flexible SEF URLs generator for Joomla! that provides an easy-to-use graphical user interface to simplify the management of URLs.
As experts with JoomSEF and sh404SEF, we included in AceSEF almost all features that these components have and fulfilled their lacks.
AceSEF supports JoomFish intergration for multilangual websites, offers you to set automaticly or manually the meta tags of your pages, is 100% written in a modularity way so each component has its own settings and has a upgrade page to let you upgrade AceSEF without having to uninstall it and loose your URLs.
As you can see from the few options in General Configuration AceSEF is 100% written in modular way so each compnent has its own URL rewrite options.
Extensions for 3RD Party components
AceSEF came out with over than 80 extensions avaible for 3rd party components from the first release, so you will not have any problem in migration from other SEF components.
Alias option for all components
This is the biggest lack of JoomSEF and sh404SEF, you can set alias or title ONLY for Articles (Content) component. But because of AceSEF is written 100% in modular way you can set alias or title for ALL components.
Duplicete URL management
With sh404SEF you can manage duplicated URLs but its too hard, with AceSEF you can choose which one of duplicated URLs for just a click. Also you can switch to numerating style of duplicated URLs like JoomSEF.
Advanced router options
AceSEF can rewrite SEF URLs in 3 ways, according AceSEF Extension, J! 1.5 router.php file or AceSEF basic rewriting. Most of Joomla! 1.5 Native components inludes so you're not forced to buy AceSEF extension. But with sh404SEF you have to use/buy an extension to SEF URLs.
AceSEF, contrarily JoomSEF or sh404SEF has a 100% accurated calculation of pagination. Even if you're component doesnt use the $limit value you can add it through the component's extrension parameters.
This is a future that only AceSEF has, this is a perfect solution if you're using JoomSEF or sh404SEF and you want to use AceSEF but you dont want to loose your URLs.
