I have site problem with url duplicates like:


So, I`ve read this thread: How to deal with Duplicated Content / URLs in Joomla?

And what did I do? I made hidden technical menu with all Categories assigned, menu type - Category Blog, and I try to go through this links one more time. And they are avaliable!

So, can anyone write some rules what to do, how to create menus/categories/articles to avoid url duplicates?


  • Are you using any SEF components such as Joomsef or sh404sef? – Dtorr1981 Jul 13 '17 at 0:24
  • Without redirections on the URLs that are for the same page, they will always be displayed. If you really want to not allow this, then you need a sef component like sh404SEF. It's not a matter of how to setup menus-categories etc. – FFrewin Jul 13 '17 at 6:04
  • Hi! No, I dont use them, I thought it's not so important and actualy I hope to find some solution without external components. So there is no way to make joomla site without problems in routing? I've read this thread of @FFrewin - link and thought that if I'll add menus to all categories this will work. – Igor_77 Jul 13 '17 at 11:41
  • Oh, sorry man, I just see that it's your answer:) Thanks! So As I understand only SEF components are the way to deal with that. So what is the best? sh404SEF? – Igor_77 Jul 13 '17 at 13:26
  • I use joomline.org/extensions/scripts-other-developments/… for a 1,5 year, recommend! – Igor_77 Dec 20 '18 at 18:28
