Help me find this URL that is listed on google But I can't find it in the backend anywhere

Post by qwan » Sat Nov 28, 2020 9:52 am

I was just going through the google search results and found this link https://istore.com.gh/34-iphone.feed

I don't ever remember creating such a page. Long time I had made made category link on the "parent menu" to display all the articles under it in this fashion.
I have disabled it since long.

I looked through my articles I check the "iphone" category but I still can't find anything.

I don't see to have any feed plugin installed.

I am totally flabbergasted. I don't know how I can't find this when I have spent years on Joomla now.

So please help find where exactly is this being generated and/or how to remove it.

Thanks

There is no Alias for the menu item iPhone is "iphone" It is URL menu where # is given.

Not I am not using any SEO extension.

Thanks for the reply

Thanks for the reply. Yes I did that the first thing.
Article number 34 is the vision article in about us.
Also I checked if there is menu with the number 34 I can't find that either.

Now i Found the problem.
iphone category id is 34

even if I just do this https://www.istore.com.gh/34- it will not show a 404 but will show the page without home page modules.
or https://www.istore.com.gh/34-iphone

This also works.
https://www.istore.com.gh/35-laptops.feed

Where 35 is the id number of the category laptop

Its really strange

Now it gets stranger

Now these links will not give a 404 error But it will show a blank page with all the modules and menu enabled but blank content.
https://www.istore.com.gh/34-
or
https://www.istore.com.gh/34
Or if you add anything after 34-
https://www.istore.com.gh/34-klerj2309fds9((*#%#4
It will not show a 404 page.

But it will show a 404 page with any other category id.
https://www.istore.com.gh/35-klerj2309fds9((*#%#4

Or any number unless that number is an id of an article.


Also just adding the article id nummber it shows the page
https://www.istore.com.gh/99

So i am not sure it will show any published article(even if its not in the menu) So I guess google is crawling these old pages which I have not put in menu but not unpublished I guess I have to move them all to the trash.

Again stranger that if you add anything after the 99- it still show the article

https://www.istore.com.gh/99-klerj2309fds9((*#%#4

Do you use Legacy or Modern Routing with or without ID?
