Not exactly sure what your question is. Can you elaborate? Are you talking about a SE-friendly URL package?

...and Welcome to WebmasterWorld!

There are several SEF URL packages available for Joomla. Check the extention section of the website.

Search on terms like

joomla clean URLs
joomla friendly URLs

And you should find plenty to help you out.

Depends on whether you are using Joomla 1.0.x or 1.5.x. For the latter sh404SEF is supposed to be the bee's knees but I can never find the patience to understand it.

Do you really want underscores rather than hyphens as separators? That defeats one of the SEO objectives. Google said they were going to treat both as equivalent but I don't know if that has happened yet.

In Joomla 1.5 you can go to Global configuration and there's a checkbox for "Search Engine Friendly URLs"

This is in 1.1 as well. It does not give you complete across the board search engine friendly url's, it only works on basic Joomla functions. You will need a third party solution. Check out Joomla extensions [extensions.joomla.org].

As anallawalla noted, sh404SEF is one of the better known ones for 1.5

You can use sh404SEF for the url rewrite, set the rewrite mode to with .httaccess and modify your httaccess.txt according to the help file of the sh404SEF. That all. and for meta management, you should not depend on it. Its better if you can go for any other extensions. because, it has some limitation for meta management.

azraf,

Welcome to webmasterworld!

You are absolutely correct about the meta tags. The title and description tags can be problematic. I have not found any solution other then altering the config files manually.
