SEO PRO base names
From Elxis Official Documentation
A SEO PRO base name is a short name placed in a SEO PRO formatted URL to declare the component that the page belongs to. The SEO PRO base names are unique, reserved by Elxis, words. You can not use that name for providing SEO title to a content section for example. links for instance, is a reserved word for component Weblinks.
Elxis has an internal map that links SEO PRO base names to components or tasks. You can find this mapping in file /includes/sef.php
If you create a section with SEO title links then the URL of that section and of all categories and content items will start from:
An for the French language (as on our example):
When we navigate to this URL Elxis will have a big dilemma. Which page to display to the visitor, component Weblinks or the content Section links?
To avoid such issues all SEO PRO base names are unique and some of them are reserved for certain components. Elxis wont allow you to create a section with SEO title links.
For all third party components the SEO PRO base names are the component names with the suffix com_.
The above URL is a SEO PRO URL for component Super Test. The SEO PRO base name for that component is com_supertest.
Making the URLs looking better
The com_ prefix is a good solution for the third party component but not the best. We can have better URLs by removing the com_ prefix from the SEO PRO base name and reserving the new base name in Elxis core.
