-- HikaShop version -- : 4.2.3
-- Joomla version -- : 3.9.16
-- PHP version -- : 7.4.x

For our shop we would like to tuns Simplified breadcrumbs off, but the problem is that in that case the URL's created in OSmap Free in combination with the Mapx Hikashop sitemap plugin are getting a prefix (category_pathway-xx). This is bad because we now have double content. The URL's work with and without the prefix.The URL's with the prefix are added to the Search Console but the Google crawler is indexing without the prefix. So we have double content. We need the full breadcrumbs path to make navigation easier on the website.

Simplified breadcrumbs off:
domainname.com/en/products/custom-sized-foam/product/product-90-mile-beach/category_pathway-26
but the URL: domainname.com/en/products/custom-sized-foam/product/product-90-mile-beach also work.

Simplified breadcrumbs on:
domainname.com/en/products/custom-sized-foam/product/product-90-mile-beach

Is there a way to fix this.

Thanks!

Hi,

If you enter the URL you want in the "canonical URL" field of your products, then the crawlers will automatically use that URL for the indexing, and will discard the other URLs leading to the product page so you won't have the duplicate content error.
