same alias for category and product
« on: March 20, 2017, 15:35:01 pm »
I have the same alias for a category and a product.
when I select the category (with different products) will directly open the product page with the same alias.
Is there a way to solve the problem?
I tried to turn on "Use the suffix for the product URL" but nothing changes ...

Did you miss the vital security release?

why not just change the product alias?
