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.

Same problem with multicategory products but with urls.
For examle i have Product A in Base category -> Category A and Category B. In the settings of Product A set Force canonical category to Category A. But URL of this product from base category is to ategory B! Why and how can i fix this?


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

This is the product URL:
The canonical URL is
Url must be the same like canonical URL.
