How to make custom search engine friendly URLs in Joomla

How to set Joomla Search Engine Friendly URLsThe Joomla CMS provides a neat little way to turn the standard ugly urls from their long, unfriendly format to a much more human readable 'Search Engine Friendly (SEF)" version.

Follow these two simple steps in order to make your Joomla system show friendly URLs!

http://www.example.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=44&Itemid=918
