Please help, is it a bug?
I have a problem and Iīve tested in a brand new Joomla installation. Joomla 2.5.6 Virtuemart 2.0.8e
I have this url: shop/8/2/powertools/circular-saw
Then I change product name and Product Alias, instead of Circular saw I call it Circular sew
and I get this url: shop/8/2/powertools/circular-sew
The problem is now you can type shop/8/2/powertools/circular-saw or shop/8/2/powertools/circular-sew both point to the same product.
Now imagine you change the category and you get this url shop/8/5/powertools/indoortools/circular-sew
Now there are three url that point to the same place. I think old url should takes you to a 404, and you should give a 301 redirection to the new url.
Iīve tried to make a redirection with Joomla redirection component but it doesnīt work, if you type an old url then youīll get an old url. The problem is Google will index the three urls, thatīs duplicate content and I have few urls like that. If you donīt want duplicate with Virtuemart you canīt change anything, but thatīs not useful
Can somebody help me, I canīt find any solution
Thanks a lot
