Cerbalus-aravensis-spider-photo-3 Task

Get original Joomla URL from a SEF one. I.e. I want to know which is the real joomla URL, while the SEF one is http://sandbox2.com.us/index.php/weblinks-component

This may be needed while developing or making modifications in Joomla extension to use the real internal joomla link.

Solution for Joomla 3

The code below alswo works in most cases, but at least once I've met a strange behaviour - url parts were messed up with some Google Analytics variable. So I gave up using it

Result in $url: index.php?Itemid=229&option=com_contact&view=contact&id=1

Old solution for Joomla 1.5, doesn't work with Joomla 3

         // Here I "unparse" the Joomla SEF url to get the internal joomla URL
            JURI::current();// It's very strange, but without this line at least Joomla 3 fails to fulfill the task
            $router =& JSite::getRouter();// get router
            $query = $router->parse(JURI::getInstance()); // Get the real joomla query as an array - parse current joomla link
            $url = 'index.php?'.JURI::getInstance()->buildQuery($query);
