[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] I HAD to disable canonical functions :( (2 posts)

    I am using the great plugin and discovered it is adding canonicals to pages I DO want indexed.

    Someone tell me if I can do this thru a setting, I could not find the fix in Yoast so I just went into the code and turned off canonicals until I can tweak it.

    Here is an example of my URL structure:


    When I got to the above URL it is noindex and that's more than 1/2 my site. This page is generated dynamically.

    The canon says this is the canonical URL for all pages like this:


    So my fakepages a,b,c,d,e,f,g etc never get indexed.

    Anyone have similar issues?

    Yes, I have this issue with Yoast SEO and Ecwid shopping cart. By setting the canonical URL, Yoast prevents the Ecwid cart pages from being indexed.
