canonical problem in virtuemart
« on: July 11, 2018, 08:24:41 am »
Hi.

I have some products that are in multiple categories.
they have the same canonical URL, so no SEO problem.

my problem:
as I said products have multiple URLs. VirtueMart chooses one of them as canonical.
but I wanna choose which route to be as canonical.

How can I do this?

In version .15 you can choose the canonical url for a product

This allows you to specify the canonical url for a product that is in multiple categories

Shame you did not include any information about versions etc that you use.

Show us what the canonical URL is when you visit the product in category B and when you visit from category A

The canonical URL is correct on the page. But the product URL is not correct from the parent category and does not match the canonical link.
This is the product URL: https://motobrat.com.ua/mototyuning/tun-suzuki/zadnie-dugi-mototsikla-suzuki-intruder-volusia-2c-c800-2c-c50-detail.html
The canonical URL is https://motobrat.com.ua/mototyuning/dugi/zadnie-dugi-mototsikla-suzuki-intruder-volusia-2c-c800-2c-c50-detail.html
Url must be the same like canonical URL.

This post is duplicate from: http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=145253.0;topicseen

Show admin setup for this product (category, canonical category).
If you not send, then it is only academic debate :)
