Why does the URL contain index.php with the SEF feature switched on?

It sounds like your “Use URL rewriting” settings haven’t been turned on in Joomla. The good news is that our system comes ready to use Apache’s server side app called mod_rewrite. This will rewrite the ‘index.php?’ into human readable links.

To do this you need to:
1. Go to your Joomla administration panel.
2. Select Site > Global Configuration
3. Under SEO Settings set Use URL Rewriting to Yes
4. Click Save
