#1010 – Json error when activate Route 66

Status: Pending - Category: Route 66
 Hi Lefteris, how are you?
I'm trying Route 66 in a Joomla 4.2.8 multilingual site.
When I activate the Route 66 URL, I have the following error

Warning: json_decode() expects parameter 1 to be string, object given in
on line

Page not found

Call stack
# Function Location
1 () JROOT/libraries/src/Router/Router.php:153
2 Joomla\CMS\Router\Router->parse() JROOT/libraries/src/Application/SiteApplication.php:736

Thanks for your support
Hi Miguel,

This is a not found error. Which URL gives that error? Since this is a multilingual site make sure that you have configured it properly. You can publish the administrator module named "Multilanguage status" and check it's report.
It will find any issues.

Hi Lefteris! How are you?
The multilingual status is ok


Steps to recreate the issue
Select a menu category blog
Select one of the articles
The url is formatted as I want (only domain/{articleAlias}
But displays error

If I deactivate Route 66, the url has category/subcategory/articlealias, and displays ok

I let you a screen record

Also, I've tried with Casiopeia template, to discard template issues. I have the same result


Best regards
Hi Miguel,

We have added several fixes in the upcoming version of Route 66. Some of them have to do with multilingual sites.
The new version will come out really soon.

Until then, if it's possible, create a new private ticket and provide SFTP access so I can troubleshoot this.
