The canonical tag doesn't help the search engines because it is the same as the above URLs and this leads to duplicate content.
This plugin allows you to remove all parent categories from the URL to avoid duplication:
- Before the plugin the URLs will be http://site.com/parentcategory/subcategory1/subcategory2/subcategory3 and http://site.com/subcategory3
- After the plugin the URL will be only http://site.com/subcategory3
The modification is made with the built in extension installer and doesn't require vqmod or coding skills.
It was tested on opencart 1.5.x to 2.1.x and it works.
After version 188.8.131.52 and before 1.5.0 the modified file is located elsewhere and this mod will not work. Please read the documentation before proceeding with installation. Created by Advento.bg
