Generate new SEF URLs

If this option is set to No, MijoSEF won't create any new SEF URLs and will use only the ones already created. It is useful if you have a web site with static content and all of your URLs are created correctly, so you can be sure that no new URL will be created.
Default value: Yes

Lowercase URLs

If set to YES, all chars in SEF URLs will be lowercase. Otherwise, they will the same as original content title. For example, if the article title is “Team Members” and lowercase URL is no, the SEF URL will be “Team-Members.html”, otherwise, it'll be “team-members.html”.
Default value: Yes

Find ItemID smartly

If set to YES, MijoSEF will try to find the proper ItemID in a smart way. This will prevent Duplicated SEF URLs.
Default value: Yes

Numeral Duplicated URLs

If set to No, duplicate URLs will be stored in database and only one of them will be used. MijoSEF tries to choose the best one, but that is not always possible. If there are many duplicates for one SEF URL, the links probably won't work correctly. If set to Yes, duplicates will be numbered like “-dp1,-dp2, -dp3 ”, so the correct URL will be always used. "No" is recommended because Google doesn't like duplicated content.

Default value: Yes

If enabled, both URL versions (with and without the trailing slash) will work. Otherwise only one version (the one stored inthe database) will work.
Default value: Yes
