Joomla Same Alias Errors
- Save failed with the following error: Another article from this category has the same alias
- Save failed with the following error: Another menu item has the same alias in Root. Root is the top level parent
That may happen when you are saving a menu item, an article, or a category item
Sometimes you can not find even after checking the aliases from the lists.
In this case i recommend you checking the unpublished items or trashed items
If you still can not find, i recommend you to check the database tables
- for menu aliases #__menu
- for content aliases #__content
- for category aliases #__categories
You can download this tables and analyze alias fields to see where the alias is already used.
Please Note:Before working with database, and before you change something, never forget to make a backup
