on our schools website we have a jobs page which shows any content in the jobs section.
On the old joomla box instead of having the huge url at the end of the website url. We have http://www.rosebridge.wigan.sch.uk/jobs (wont work)
how can i do this?

you need to turn short urls on in the global config... you will also need to use the .htaccess file supplied with the Joomla install.

I think you have to turn on the search engine friendly urls in the global config

This is one thing that I want and it won't work with EMBC because they use Windows servers without all the required bits and pieces.
If it doesn't work on your host either you could just create the directory 'jobs' and then put a redirect script in there to send it to your Joomla URL.

i have read around about the htaccess file
when i do change set the friendly urls on and change the name of htaccess.txt to .htaccess i just get a internal 500 error.
what would i have to change in the htaccess file?

download the .htaccess file to your local computer, and then just right click open with notepad :-) no need to change the file extension. once you have made the changes just re-upload the .htaccess file to your webserver.

At the moment it is called htaccess.txt. it has never been .htaccess :s
the file looks confusing to me what would i have to change?

take of the .txt
so .htaccess.txt > .htaccess

I have just spoke to the previous network manager who set up the old site. he has done a htm redirect.
How would i go about setting this up?

Whats your server hosted on?
To change the htaccess file, download it to your pc
Open it in notepad
Change the uncomment needed bits.
Rename to .htaccess (unless it is already this)
Turn on SEO URL in joomla
p.s could be wourth looking on Joomla forums - http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?t=185906
