Hi folks

CREATE a string that can be used as an alias,i.e. in the Articla Alias field. 
CODE
JFilterOutput::stringURLSafe($string)
EXAMPLE 1
// You might want to make the value of some field become the alias, or use it as part of the path for a category etc...

// Below could be used in the Fields Afterstore, Beforestore...
$artTitle = $fields['art_title']->value; // value could be 'Hey There'
$artTitleAsAlias = JFilterOutput::stringURLSafe($artTitle); // value would become 'hey-there'
$config['storages']['#__content']['title']    =     $artTitleAsAlias; // value stored in db under title column 'hey-there'
// never likely to see this, it is just an example
EXAMPLE 2
// You might want to concat two values
$catTitle = $fields['cat_title']->value; // value could be 'Hot Chocolate'
$catParentID = $fields['cat_parent_id'] // value could be '7'
$catTitleAsAlias = JFilterOutput::stringURLSafe($catTitle); // value would be 'hot-chocolate'

$config['storages']['#__category']['alias']    =     $catParentID . '-' . $catTitleAsAlias; // value stored in db under alias column '7-hot-chocolate'
