Links to tagged item pages showing parameters in urls?

Post by DV-admin » Thu Nov 29, 2018 3:56 pm

Hi there,

I want to put links in my articles, module or category descriptions to tagged item pages.

Such as a page about Swordfish and related tagged items on this subject. This is such a page.

https://www.dolcevia.com/nl/zwaardvis

I have however noticed that links to tagged item page in for example tag or category descriptions contain parameters and look like this, which isn't very pretty : :(

https://www.dolcevia.com/nl/zwaardvis?types[0]=1&types[1]=5&types[2]=9

I do not think any particular SEO plugin is doing this and I have not found the answer anywhere.

This (attachment) is what the link looks like in the menu manager so I do not think the SEO friendly links are working for these types of links.

Does anybody have any idea why this is happening or better yet, what I could do to stop this behaviour.

Thanks and best regards,
Elisabeth

This is a screenshot of the menu item (it's in a hidden menu)

I guess I could use this htaccess rule but I have 60 tags like this and of course it would be a lot of work plus filling up my already large htaccess file.

Would anyone else have a better solution??

# Remove extra bits from tag URL

Code: Select all

RewriteRule ^nl/zwaardvis /nl/zwaardvis? [L,R=301]

It seems that the problem can be clarified:
Joomla is not correctly creating SEF URL for this specific menu item type.
Will it be fixed?

Are you adding these links with text editor? What do they look like inside editor?

Hi there,
Thanks for answering!
These are links inside the Category or Tag description text area.

Hi there! I fixed it. It was due to an extention SEO plugin.
