Roberts Issue.

I'm looking forward to tomorrow's meeting, and after a successful Joomla 5 upgrade, I had hoped I wouldn't have any questions for a change!
However, when I published a multi-page blog post last week, A Dad and Son Road Trip (, I noticed a problem with the SEF URLs:
I've split the 10 days of the road trip with each day on a separate page, and on the first page, there's a "table of contents". In HTML, it looks like this:
<li><a href="/blog/a-dad-and-son-road-trip/sydney-to-bendigo">Day 1: Sydney to Bendigo</a></li>
<li><a href="/blog/a-dad-and-son-road-trip/horsham-and-arapilies">Day 2: Horsham and Arapilies</a></li>
<li><a href="/blog/a-dad-and-son-road-trip/horsham-to-adelaide">Day 3: Horsham to Adelaide</a></li>
<li><a href="/blog/a-dad-and-son-road-trip/adelaide-to-streaky-bay">Day 4:&nbsp;Adelaide to Streaky Bay</a></li>
<li><a href="/blog/a-dad-and-son-road-trip/the-nullarbor-plain">Day 5: The Nullarbor Plain</a></li>
<li><a href="/blog/a-dad-and-son-road-trip/great-australian-bight-to-wa">Day 6: Great Australian Bight to WA</a></li>
<li><a href="/blog/a-dad-and-son-road-trip/balladonia-to-esperance">Day 7: Balladonia to Esperance</a></li>
<li><a href="/blog/a-dad-and-son-road-trip/esperance-to-albany">Day 8: Esperance to Albany</a></li>
<li><a href="/blog/a-dad-and-son-road-trip/south-coast-highway-to-manjimup">Day 9: South Coast Highway to Manjimup</a></li>
<li><a href="/blog/a-dad-and-son-road-trip/end-of-the-road-trip">Day 10: End of the Road Trip</a></li>
<li><a href="/blog/a-dad-and-son-road-trip/reflections">Reflections</a></li>

The "sydney-to-bendigo" and "horsham-and-arapiles" parts of the URL correspond to the Page Break Title, e.g., <hr class="system-pagebreak" title="sydney to bendigo" />
But if I click the link, I get a 404 Page Not Found error.
Instead, I found by clicking the page navigation bar that I need to format the URL for Sydney to Bendigo as: /blog/a-dad-and-son-road-trip?start=1 (start=2 etc).
I've published multi-page articles and tables of contents on Tall And True since its launch in 2017, so I immediately thought this was a Joomla 5 upgrade problem. However, when I rolled back to Joomla 4.3.x on my staging server, I found the same problem with the existing multi-page articles, like Seven Nights in Moscow and St. Petersburg ( ).
I think the issue with the multi-page SEFs occurred when I upgraded to Joomla 4 in 2022 and stopped using the sh404SEF extension. The Redirect Plugin "masked" the 404 errors, and looking at the Expired URLs from multi-page articles in the Redirect Links component supports my suspicion.
So, my long-winded question is: Can anyone recommend a component that will give me SEF URLs for multi-page articles?
