Hi All!

This is my first post in the forum, and my first time using CB, so please bear with me! I have a client who has a community website, already in J1.5 and wants to add community functions.

I've properly installed CB1.3.1 on his old installation on a different sub-domain (; using Akeeba Backup) so as to not mess with the current, live site (

I have SEF URL's turned on as according to this popular J1.5 article:!_1.5 , but when I try to register, or login, I get a 404 error.

To see, visit:, and try to signup.

Here are my setting in the global config, minus that of the SEF setup:

- Allow User Registration: No
- New User Registration Type: Registered
- New User Activation: No
- Frontend Parameters: Hide

And in the CB1.3.1 Global Configuration, under the Global Registration Tab:

- Allow User Registration: Indepenedently of global configuration
- Autogenerate random: Yes
- Require Admin Approval: Yes
- Require Email Confirmation: Yes
- URL for first login visit: index.php?option=com_comprofiler
- I also have a menu set to Public linking to the profile page, and the user list

I had AlphaRegistration installed for the old site, but I have it deactivated.

When I click on the register link, I get this URL:

When I try to login to the login form, I get this URL:

I really need this to work WITH SEF URL's activated. There are links that depend upon it, and I don't think my client would be happy having to redo all the links in the site.

Thanks so much for your help in advance!

The URLs look correct, but SEF does not appear to be configured correctly causing a bad rewrite. Please ensure you've .htaccess configured correctly. If you do not have an Apache powered server then please do not use the apache mod_rewrite option found when configuring SEF in Joomla global configuration. I also recommend disabling the addition of .html. Would seam you're also missing a Joomla CB menu link that is public and published.
