Many urls point to an uniqe article

Post by hoanta » Thu Jun 13, 2013 5:19 pm

Hi everybody,

My site is joomla 3.1.1, with SEF ON, Rewrite ON.
I've just found that many urls can point to the same article, like this:

While visiting mysite.com/aboutus.html (assigned to mainmenu), if i click any link in other menu, there is still an alias of mainmenu in the url.

Even when I manually insert whatever word in between after site name, the link does work!

something like this:

http://www.mysite.com/mainmenu/category ... ticle.html
http://www.mysite.com/othermenu/categor ... ticle.html
www.mysite.com/whatever/3-article.html
www.mysite.com/3-article.html

All these above urls point to 3-article.html.

Is this a buf of Joomla 3.1.1 otherwise something wrong with any settings of my site?

I see the same issue with demo site.
I tried to create a demo category and demo article under this category.
And from front end view, I see the url :
http://joomla30.cloudaccess.net/8-demo/2-demo.html
After deleting category ID, the url will be:
http://joomla30.cloudaccess.net/2-demo.html

But it still works.
