joomla sites URLs contain duplicate domain names

Postby wood1e » Wed May 16, 2018 2:18 pm


I am fairly new to joomla, and i just migrated a site, so I don't know if this issue existed prior, but there appears to be duplicate page URLs but with duplicate domain names in the url

For example no problem then there is ... es/frying/ - which is wrong but does show the same page!

How can this be fixed I read about disabling SEF, but that doens't seem to have had an effect.

Any ideas would be most helpful.

Try this -

Go to your article manager
Click "Options" in the top right
Click the "Integration" tab
Change URL Routing to "Modern"

Hit save.

I'm assuming you have a valid htaccess file in place.

Also assuming that in the global configuration "Search Engine Friendly URLs" is set to yes and "Use URL Rewriting" is also set to yes.
