Joomla Search-Engine-Friendly URLS display an unformatted page
Posted by zz-James Moir on 21 June 2016 04:07 PM

Issue

When Search Engine Friendly URLs are enabled in Joomla, the pages lose their formatting and CSS styles.

Solution

This is most likely caused by an incomplete mod_rewrite configuration.

Follow the steps detailed in the following Joomla article. Take particular note of the requirement to rename htaccess.txt to .htaccess in your /httpdocs directory.
