Has the "multiple URLs to same content" been fixed?

Post by EvanGR » Wed Feb 06, 2013 6:59 pm

One of my SEO nightmares in Joomlas prior to 3, is the multiple URLs issue.

Basically, consider this example URL:
mysite.com/news/51-happy-new-year

the '51' is the article ID, then there's a - and then there's the custom article alias.

However, you might as well type

mysite.com/news/51
or
mysite.com/news/51-give-me-bananas
or
mysite.com/news/51whatever

It all points to the same content. This is horrible for SEO (among other things).

Simple question: Has this been fixed in 3?

Thanks
