Hi i have a question about the duplicate content / link structure within wordpress
Hi i have the link structure
If i create a category (bits) a sub category (bobs) and add a post to that sub category (widgets.html) the url looks like this
Which is what you would expect. However if you type in any of the following in to the address bar you are served with the content of Example.com/bits/bobs/widgets.html even though the url is different.
Example.com / bits/ widgets.html
Each one have the server response code 200 which is not what you would expect as only one truly exists the other 2 should be 404s.
Why does wordpress do this an how can i prevent it.
I have added the canonical link/tag to the top of every page so search engines know what the url should be, but its not the best solution.
