I have not worked with joomla so far but if it helps this reminds me of the way you set up your permalinks to be displayed in WordPress. You just have to change those settings to the type of URL you want to use.
I hope this helps.
how can I get rid of the long address? in the link of the page?
I just want them to type the domain name. should I redirect them with .htacess ?
First, it looks like Joomla is not installed in the root folder - in fact, it looks as though there is nothing in the root folder, hence the "Forbidden" error. Second, the "en" is the English version of the website - there must be some multi-language setting used in Joomla.

thank you David.
it is a site that they give it to me and they want me to fix it. I didn't install Joomla in their host, after talking with the host company they installed it there.
there was no public folder in their FTP, and they told me that the files are in "httpaccess" folder, in that folder there is a Joomla1 folder that they installed Joomla there.
I just create the home page again, and it is working now.
but the address bar is horrible.
what should I do?
Well, can you ask them to have Joomla installed in the root directory and not in a separate directory within that? I guess you could rewrite your url but that's too much work when there's an easier solution.
Uzoma, what is the easier solution for that?
I was just referring to installing Joomla in the root directory. That way, you wouldn't have to write any code to rewrite the url (I'm not even sure how rewriting the url will work in this case).
