I have a website that can be accessed by an unknown link under the website. For example there is an /unrelated-link under my domain and it can access the website.

To illustrate:


Although it seems like it is under the menu of the page, I can't seem to find it in the menu manager of Joomla. Is there anyway to remove that? Or is there a sort of website mapping file where I could remove it? A sort of web.xml kind of thing?

    hard to say, it can be many things... apart of core joomla sef, do you have any other sef extensions? can you share the actual link?

  • I do not have any other SEF installed. Here are the links: holyinfantjesusmanila.com/6v-written-assignment-text-types holyinfantjesusmanila.com/…

  • If you have access to phpmyadmin, I would select that database and just do a search across all tables for 6v-written-assignment-text-types and see what it comes up with. Jun 16, 2016 at 14:07
  • I have manually searched for it in each table, but there are no references there

  • What content is displayed under that link? Do you have some 3rd party SEO extension?
