Problem whith sitemap generation

Post by igporoshin » Thu Mar 08, 2018 5:05 pm

Hi all.

I try to generate sitemap, but i see pages with an additional parameter in url, for example ....?category_id=29, ....?f=1 (There are no direct links to these pages on site)

How can I delete these pages from site and sitemap?

I suggest that you familiarise yourself with canonical urls. Google "canonical urls in joomla"

Visit the dynamic URLs of your websites that you see in the sitemap and check the source code. When bots crawl these dynamic URLs they find a canonical link hidden in the HTML which points them to a prefered, used URL.

Don't worry, everything is how it should be.
