How do I stop Joomla from generating multiple links to the exact same content?

  • My menu button generates the link: .com/l-services/laundry-services (the menu requires an alias for every button on the menu)
  • My component generates the link: .com/denver-field-guide/laundry-services (Joomla generates /denver-field-guide/ based on the category Denver Field Guide and the page Laundry Services
Both link to the exact same article and creates duplicate content for every article in every category. The menu link isn't even a URL link it's a direct link to the blog page. Is there a way to stop this from happening with a Global Configuration setting?

My first response would be, it's probably doing what it's supposed to be doing.

But I wonder if the behaviour is actually the sh404SEF component. Can you disable it and see if the site does anything different with the links?

A link (rather than screenshots) would be better, or at least as well as, the screenshots.

The Menu link to your blog page is an URL.......any hyperlink to any other web page of any sort is an URL. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/URL

If you test with it disabled then you need to clear Joomla cache after disabling it.
